Good Morning, Everyone!       🐱  A LITTER BIT OF A CATASTROPHE! 🐱

🎶 That CAT is high…Look at that look in his eye…Oh man he’s high, the CAT’S higher than a kite..🎶. “That Cat is High” – Manhattan Transfer 1975

🐱 Angora sweater, Angora cat…the twain should never meet,
But our poor girl, unfortunately, had this with which to meet…
She’ll USHER in this brand new day…and find nothing will save her,
She’s victim to what comes down to the FRUIT of her cats labor…
You know a cat can OVERDO the shedding here and there,
The bad part is said shedding can just ruin what you might wear…
The cat eats a CANARY…I’m sure you’ve heard that told,
But in our case today we see a different tale unfold…
Our girl should have surmised as much…and now as her cat purrs…
She’ll need another outfit since this ones been quite “TRANS-FURRED”! 🐱

So…This morning, our puzzle seemed so furmiliar, that it definitely gave me paws. It kept nipping at me, so I knew I had to check it out. And purr enough, I nailed it! I found exactly what I was thinking of…We had a puzzle back on April 27th, ‘18, that pretty much fit our theme today. That day, our puzzle showed a woman holding up a ruined sweater, and a cat lying on a couch, feline smug, after shedding all over it. The cat had slept on the sweater…and now it was WORSE “FUR” WEAR…The cat had completely ruined her outfit, as the woman exclaimed…and she was also heard asking how could she possibly put it on now….And even though that day, it was really her fault, for leaving her sweater out on the furniture, the bottom line today is still the same…The sweater looks clawful! So I guess we can say, almost two years later, that the cat don’t crawl far from the spree…And these cats are seriously going to deplete our girls wardrobes, a litter bit at a time!

But back to the puzzle at hand….Once again, as has been the case since Monday, we’re not seeing any mew words, but just like Wednesday, both of our five letter anagrams have appeared before…RUFTI from July, 2018, and SUREH from this past October. And going by the reactions of the Early Birds, I’d pick OVERDO as the stumper today, simply beclaws it was the word that had most of them scratching their heads…And CANARY? You can have it for a song…it’s a tweet repeat…

So, today we’re looking at a hairy situation, but to cat lovers, purrhaps an all too furmiliar one. We see our girl, wearing a purrfectly beautiful blue sweater that now has to be categorized as unwearable…And all beclaws this cat is shedding at a meowments notice, leaving serious claws for concern. Where our girl thought she’d be ready for a night out as a glamour puss...instead she’s now relegated to being a sour puss…and she regrets picking up the cat to say goodnight…Beclaws by doing so, the hair just “TRANS- FURRED” onto her…And I hate to say it, but this cat’s grinning too…I’m talon you, Folks…what a cattitude…and it’s apawling! As I said before, we got ourselves a real catastrophe here…And let’s hope our girl don’t get hissterical…

Eye candy? There’s a scratching post in the background, under a pawtrait of our girl and her furmidable opponent on a happier day. A fur ball lies amidst all the hair on the floor, and the lint brush in our girls hand is completely covered…But I think I’ll go with the little toy mouse lying at the cats tail…Just beclaws…So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone! …And an aside to David…I’m sure this has never happened with Tootsie and Simon...and even though I admit to not being a cat person…you know I’m just kitten around hair….🐱🙋🏻‍♀️

  1. 🍇 The USHER at the wedding, looking like the cat that ate the CANARY, and known to OVERDO things at times, brought a bag of FRUIT into the Church…but after being chastised, he TRANSFERRED it over to one of the guests….🍇

    🎊🎉With hopes to USHER in the year with FRUIT and punch and such
    Instead of what was usual…(he never drank that much)…
    He hoped his guests would understand, and they’d not OVERDO
    With criticism and remarks that’d only make him blue…
    He took his pet CANARY and put her out of sight,
    He knew she might get anxious by all the noise tonight
    So even though the party’s fare might somehow be unheard…
    He really hoped things went well as year old to new TRANSFERRED….🎉🎊

  2. No wonder my answers don’t match, my newspaper ran the puzzle for 2/26/20 again! Never a dull moment.

  3. Hi all – The ‘Y’ at the end let me get CANARY quickly, and when I wrote the letters for the third word, I saw that DO could be separated out to give OVERDO, just like HAIRDO which is often a stumper. Looking at CANARY and OVERDO, it also occurred to me that there’s usually an exception to the double letter trick for ‘A’ and ‘I’ and ‘U’. I came *very* close to giving up on the answer even though I saw that FUR and -ED were probably involved, but finally saw TRANS to solve it.

    Hey Angela, 🎵”Well, it’s one for the money, two for the show
    Three to get ready, Now go, CAT, go
    But don’t you SHED on my blue suede shoes“🎵

    Have a great day, everyone!

    “She was sorry she let the CANARY OVERDO his morning FRUIT snack when she had to USHER him out of his cage to clean it”.

    • Hi Steve. Doesn’t pairing letters just apply to consonants? 🤷🏻‍♀️

      • I hadn’t thought about it until today, but no, double ‘E’s and ‘O’s are common and very helpful in getting words like (or that contain) door, fleece, etc. Not OVERDO, though! 😂🙋🏻‍♂️

    • Ah..Stand corrected..The words book and free just came to mind…I’ve never “used” what you refer to as the double letter trick to recognize a word ..but I have noted that most words with double consonants are usually spelt with them paired…🙋🏻‍♀️
