The ballad of the cat and the dinosaurs

Celebrating the return of media to my WordPress blog with the ballad of Ursula the cat and the dinosaurs in a (pre)historic standoff.

Ursula, Ursula! Meet the nice dinosaur!

Gee, don’t bite me, don’t smite me, don’t give me a fright!

Megalasaurus? Tyrannosaurus Rex? Spinosaurus? Tarbosaurus? Hog of the hedge?

Not another dinosaurus! Don’t make me guess. Tamagoyakiosaurus? That’s obviously a yes.

    Did she pounce? I love the image where she is clearly about to.

      No, it was a purely platonic encounter, strange to say.

        A standoff I guess.
