Cat is Sometimes Spelled with a K

I’m all cattywampus

or should I say catawampus?

I’ve been looking and looking for words

that will fit the category

of those containing the word spelled c-a-t

Here is the rule

Proclaimed by Linda our leader

And she is no fool:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “-cat-”  Use the letters at the start, middle, or end of a word and make it the subject of your post – or just use the word “cat.” Enjoy!

To catalogue cat words I felt assured

Would be so easy it was almost absurd

But I came to find to my great chagrin

There are many cat sounding words

But in the cat category they do not fit in

How frustrating this can be

Many are spelled with a “k” instead of a “c”

Like Saskatchewan

and Saskatoon


and Kathmandu

What is a cat word cataloger supposed to do?

This is a catastrophe! I caterwauled

I now understand and know it is true

It is catch as catch can

So I think I’ll sail off

in my catamaran    🙂
