New Toy/ Erratic Cat

A little yellow bird
In a little green cage
Kept the cat engaged

She merely observed
The birdie on stage
And the subtle circles made

But I flickered a switch
On the bottom I found
That held the cat spellbound

It frantically twitched
While spinning around
With little chirping sounds

When I turned off the bird
Within seconds I heard
My happy kitty purr

But she then crept foreward
Puffing up her fur
And took off in a blur

Dozens dead in New Year’s Eve nightclub attack in Istanbul, Turkey

An assailant believed to have been dressed in a Santa Claus costume opened fire at a nightclub in Istanbul during New Year’s celebrations Saturday, killing at least 35 people and wounding 40 others in what the province’s governor described as a terror attack.

Gov. Vasip Sahin said the attacker, armed with a long-barreled weapon, killed a policeman and a civilian outside the club before entering and firing on people partying inside. He did not say who may have carried out the attack.
“Unfortunately (he) rained bullets in a very cruel and merciless way on innocent people who were there to celebrate New Year’s and have fun,” Sahin told reporters. (AP)
