Monday's Riddle! Familiar Voices...

Here's the riddle for all of you puzzle solvers out there! Can you guess the theme this week? Listen to these familiar voices to get a clue : ) ~ F

I stalk through the house without a care. I stare you down, then puff up my hair. I am the king of the manor, and I flaunt that around. I sleep in a bed, not on the ground. I eat from a dish that only serves fish, and I climb on top of whatever I wish. I like to complain when dinner is late, and my servants are punished by my nonchalant state. I am smug and revered in this tidy home. The chump that lives with me gets only a bone.



I am the chump that gets the bone, and I mess up the house when left all alone. I can play outside and get snacks when I want- all it takes is a tilt or some silly stunt. I'm not as lofty as my uppity partner, but just as smart- if not smarter! For, it is I who can run outside of the house, while he's left inside entertaining a mouse. So, laugh all you want, chump I may be- Hey! there's a squirrel in that tree!

Who are they? 

I gave you a hint ; )

  1. Cute poems! I don't have either of these but have been around plenty to recognize your clever descriptions of them. My daughter had a cat named Monty and a chocolate lab named Mattie, and your poems sure fit their personalities. Well done!

    1. Hi Connie, How funny! The cat part of the poem was written for a kitty named Monty! Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us : ) ~ F

  2. Most certainly a cat and a dog - but do you want the names of characters I wonder? Tom & Jerry? Or maybe you are thinking about a book like Flabby Cat and Slobby Dog by Tony Ross? Or patchwork dog and calico cat by Greta Burroughs. I can’t think of any more, but I bet there are lots.

  4. love the riddle! I only have two kitties myself, but I did have a dog once, so it was easy to figure out the poem. :)

  5. The bone made me think of a dog but the rest of your clever verse had me shouting 'it's a cat'.

  6. Being a cat *owner* (okay, the cat owns ME lol) I got the first one right off the cat ... I mean bat ;D

    And the second one is, of course, a dog (I've been owned for a dog or two as well!).

    Very cute poems! <3

  8. I'm thinking a cat but the bone makes me think dog. Then you said they so my guess would be cats and dogs.

  9. The first is a cat. I'd guess the second is a dog. The first really nails the cat personality.

  14. Sounds exactly like our cat and dog. Now the cat (Absalom) is glaring at me for saying that.
