"Nutter! Nutter! My poor Nutter!" she cried. "Nutter funeral"...sob, sob, sob. I actually found it really funny, but didn't want to laugh out loud at her. Seth and Eme held a little funeral and Seth wrote a poem...
An ode to Nutter
One lady beetle has nine lives
One lady beetle has nine lives plus one
One lady beetle minus 10 lives equals
One sad little girl named Eme.
...I love you Nutter.
Eme drew a picture underneath and covered it in bling and love heart stickers...then slept with it. There were tears streaming down her face and she was sobbing so hard. It really broke my heart. I gave her a big cuddle and tried to explain that everything would be okay. I promised we'd go looking for another one in the garden, and suggested that perhaps we don't go riding on our bikes with it. The drama...lol.
Seth on the other hand...here I am thinking how clever he was writing that poem...turns out he ripped off the Simpsons! haha...the episode where Lisa's cats keep dying. Well, I guess he is clever afterall...love being able to work in a Simpsons reference at any given opportunity!
Lisa: Snowball II, I can't believe you've gone. I wrote this poem for you - it's called "Cat Math". Four paws, plus one tail, plus nine lives equals one special cat. One special cat. One special cat minus nine lives equals one sad...little girl...
