A Proverb Meme!

I was tagged by Jackie and the beautiful cats at We Three, Ginger Cats Tales for a Meme about proverbs! A proverb is a simple and concrete saying popularly known and repeated, which expresses a truth, based on common sense or the practical experience of mankind. They are often metaphorical. Here is the the Ginger Cats' proverb:

Two cats in a bush,
Birds better beware.
One cat on a lap,
Birds safe anywhere.

Ah, this is very true. And now for mine. I been thinking very hard for this one! And I think this expresses a very commonly known truth:

A lizard in the Scientific Observation Pen is worth two in the wild.
To participate, just write your own proverb, link back to whoever tagged you, and then tag as many others as you wish. It is very fun! I am going to tag Skeezix, Marilyn MonREOW, and Honey P. Sunshine.

ps: If you haven't visited the ginger cats Elmo, Maurice and Pixie, you should! They have beautiful photos and entrancing stories that I think you will love very much.


42 Notes for Daisy:

Woww, Daisy, that is deep.
You know, I really check the dictionary for"on the loose" mean, sorry for English is not my mother languange, but I think after checking the dictionary I got your proverb mean.

I think that one lizard in Scientific Observation Pen could let you watch and action to it carefree and don't need to chaise two free lizards tired around.
Isn't it?

You really like Lizard, really impressive me~! That is a very very adorable photo you are, so concentrate~!

michico 小芥 said...

By the way, 3 the ginger cats blog is really beautiful, thanks for introduce, I love it and make the link already~!

Daisy said...

Michico, I changed the proverb a little from "on the loose" to "in the wild" but you got the right meaning! I am so glad you visited the Ginger Cats. Their blog is very beautiful!

Miss Peach>(^,^) said...

I do hope your lizard in the cute cage is not a rude lizard but a gentle lizard!
A fun Proverb meme too:)

Soft head bumps for my dear Pixie:) Maybe I can come over to your place and bring some tea and tuna puffs along...I know travel might be hard for Pixie.

Bounce, Lucy and Trixie said...

Furry good proverb Daisy and so true. We agree about the lizards. Maybe some time in the Observation Pen will make them less rude. You could teach them some manners.

Empress Bee (of the High Sea) said...

two cats on my sidebars
are not worth
one cat in my lap!
how is that?

smiles, bee

David E Maeda said...

Wow Daisy- that's a pretty intelligent proverb. And I gotta say I never really knew the definition of proverb before. You're pretty darn smart for a lizard chasin' cat. :-).

Donny and Marie and Casey said...

These are very cool proverbs. Here we can prove to humans that we kitties are VERY wise.


Kaze, Latte, or Chase said...

That is a great meme! I think both of yours are very very true.


Forty Paws said...

We love the Ginger Cats. They are so cool! You wrote a very nice proverb about George & George. Or is it George and Mr. Tom?

We don't think you would want to wear Dorf's sweater.

Monty Q. Kat said...

Wouldn't one lizard in the tummy be worth two on the wall?

Gattina said...

Daisy you look like a scientific busy with lizard tests !

The Cat Realm said...

That is some proverb, Daisy! But I like the pictures to go with it even better!
Sorry you didn't win the monkeys...
I didn't either! But I had thought of sending every competitor a little monkeymagnet in case I win, which it would have meant they didn't get the monkeys. And as you still didn't get the monkeys I will still send you the monkeymagnet if you email me your snail mail!

The Ginger Darlings said...

Nice one curly cat!
Lovely lizards too.
The sun is still shining today and we are all waiting for Martha to tell her story, meanwhile cat proverbs abound.
Today we met a girl named after you!

Tyler said...

I've never seen a lizard, but if it's as fun as catching a spider, I think that is a very smart proverb. Now does your mom open the SOP so you can eat the scientific object when you're done observing him?

Does Pixie like lizards too?


Gemini said...

That's a brilliant proverb Daisy!

michico 小芥 said...

Thank you Daisy, you let me learning more~!

Thoughtful proverb. You look very observant watching that lizard!

DaisyMae Maus said...

Excellent proverb, Daisy! I really like your observation pen. I don't think that Mom would let me have one, though. I also don't think that I could handle Mom's screaming if I were to invite a lizard into the house.

Mosaic Cats said...

We had to come back to thank you for insisting that we visit the Ginger Cats Three. Wow. Mosaic Lady is enchanted and entranced, and has bookmarked the site so we can read each and every page in the fresh morning light.
The photos, the landscape, the writing, the pace, and the ORANGE GUYS...a very special, and very sacred, site.
Thanks for the wonderful referral!

Oh my! I have been tagged twice for this meme already and I am now very creative, poetically. I have written one poem in my life on stinky goodness and I don't know if I could do it again, even something as short as a proverb. I will try, but I'm sure mine won't be near as good as yours.

lordjaders said...

A cat on a lap
Birds safe--so you see,
But not if the lap
Is sitting underrr a trrree!


A little twirrrp in my paw
Is worrrth two in the trrree!
