12 Days, Version 2

Mr Black challenged us to take out the rest of the regular things in the song. We made them all sea creatures. We hope you enjoy. 

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me 
Twelve whales a spouting, 
Eleven sharks a-biting, 
Ten dolphins a-leaping, 
Nine lobsters clawing, 
Eight swordfish roaming, 
Seven salmons a-swimming, 
Six goldfish spawning, 
Five northern pike, 
Four largemouth bass, 
Three brown trout, 
Two yellow perch, 
And a minnow in a little bowl.

So our challenge is, can you do the 12 days with another set of creatures? No birds or people stuff. 


  1. Anyone tried it with felines? Big cats, Medium Cats, Little Cats?

    The Chans

  2. We've got all sorts of ideas swimming around in our heads!

  4. Oh, that is WONDERFUL! You are so creative!

  5. Aw, I want BIRDS in my 12 Christmas days! I love chicken!

  6. Interesting challenge. Just might try it, even though we are about the most uncreative kitties on the face of the earth....

  7. Hmm, interesting challenge - we are going to put on our thinking caps.

  8. Rodentia Version

    On the twelfth day of Christmas
    My true love sent to me
    Twelve mousies twitching
    Eleven voles a-sniffing
    Ten rats a-running
    Nine chipmunks chewing
    Eight squirrels a-scrambling
    Seven shrews a-sneezing
    Six gerbils jumping
    Five guinea pigs
    Four capybaras
    Three handsome hamsters
    Two tiny muskrats
    And a porcupine in a spruce tree


  9. I think Spitty takes the cake. The catnip cake!

  10. Hi Boys, Come visit later tonight or tomorrow--I took your advice ;-)

  11. That was great! I have my own version that I will save for a later post...maybe!

  12. This is terrific, we will try............


Don't be shy, we loves to hear your meows and mews.
