Mistletoe

Mini, musical meowing, eight weeks old, smaller than Icicles hanging from the porch, she slips into the Snowbanks, a frock of fluffed-out fur, dashes in, nestles on Tissue paper, a tiny tiger with stripes of gray, now pouncing on Lights blinking, there-gone, there-gone, where? her Eyes a green mirror of mine, now she is Tangled in tinsel, crouching butt-wiggle, batting Ornaments and chewing ribbon, scaling our Everest of a tree, my Christmas kitten I named Mistletoe. 12/19/18 for Christmas Pets contest sponsor: Dear Heart

While this is true, it was actually about ten years ago, so she is a middle-aged cat now, but thank you for placing this in your contest!

I didn't even realize this was an acrostic until I saw the comments... which is a compliment- as it had none of the "awkwardness" of some acrostics I've seen (and written)! I loved this perfectly adorable poem on the meaning alone, but it is extra-awesome how you composed it to spell her name! Another FAV, my friend! ;)

This has got to be a winner, Michelle. It's such an utterly adorable write: so cute I can 'pinch its cheeks.' A FAVE! Give Mistletoe a hug from me. :) gw
