To newcomers: Read the rules before you join, please!

Here are the rules:

1. You may only guess one letter at a time.

2. After you have guessed a letter, you must wait for another player to guess a letter before you can go again. (see also rule #9)

3. The host of the game responding to a guess does not count as a turn. Should you choose a letter, then receive a response from the member host, you must wait for the next member to guess a letter.

4. One point will be awarded for each correct consonant, 2 points for vowels.

5. Only six misses are allowed in the game.

6. If you wish to guess the phrase, send it to me via Pet Talk personal email. [This is accessible via the 'PM' or 'Profile' buttons on any of my posts.]
DO NOT post it on the forum. If you wish to guess a letter, post it on the forum.

7. You must have submitted a correct letter to submit your solution. Unlike letters, if you submit a wrong solution, you are disqualified from continuing in that puzzle.

8. The player who correctly guesses the phrase wins the game. If no one has guessed it correctly after six misses, then the player with the most points wins the game.

9. Only 5 guesses allowed in total until the host updates the puzzle. Any guess after 5, before the next update, won't be counted as a guess. And as always, someone else has to guess a letter before you can guess another letter.

And here is what you win...you get to create the next puzzle. (Should you win the game and not care to host the next puzzle, you may pass your puzzle me to the next highest scorer)

For all the puzzle freaks out there, speaking of running amuk, I was doing a crossword puzzle yesterday. the clue was "One way to run" and it had 4 letters. I couldn't believe it when the answer was AMUK!!!:eek: That's what I had thought but I thought there was no way that way right. I got the A in the word going across, then the K in another word going across, and later on the M and I just cracked up. :D :D

Anyway, back to the puzzle. I'm not going to guess because this seems to be a runoff here, and there's no way I'd get enough points to even show, so I won't "steal" any of the letters from you guys.

Have fun! :D

~A Rescued Cat~


I was once born to a loving mother who cuddled and rendered to my needs.Soon, I was introduced to another, who said we will now tend to your needs.Life was good, I had all I could wish for with lots of toys and special feeds.
Then one day, I was lifted up and carried away. I was sat down and left to make my own way.I looked around and found I had no place to stay. I soon felt the harshness of natures day.I walked and walked looking for the one who said I was special wanting to play.Day turned into night, I was taken with fright, what was I going to do this night?

I found an old box, crawled in and settled down to wait, hoping they would appear in sight.Night turned into day, I was still with fright, but my belly was tight. I knew it was time for my breakfast. I waited and hoped for them to come back and say it will be all right.The days turned into weeks, some days I felt so weak. I traveled and hunted looking for a treat.I tried to beg for help, but all I got was a kick as I silently cried why, I don't understand, I was once told that you are my little man, now it's all I can do to stand.some days I weep as I long for a safe place to sleep. I pray that some days I will find enough to eat.I run and fight. I dodge and creep.

Then one day I hear a voice say, come here little stray, I will help you find a place to stay. I run afraid looking for a safe place to hide. The voice calls high, don't be afraid I will help you little guy. I sit and watch, waiting for the worst, but I'm offered a tin of milk to help my thirst.The day goes by and to my surprise I find a bowl of food piled high. I eat with glee, oh gee why is she so nice to me.Could it possibly be she will love me? I soon again learn to trust, as the voice smoothes my soul and the hand grooms my coat that has become dull, where there was once a glow. I hear the words don't be afraid, I will take you in and give you a place to lay.As I relax my head and body to rest, I hear the words God Bless you little stray you now have a place to stay.




I really liked this poem. Although it lacked certain punctuation skills from the author it was still a very nice poem. I hope you all enjoy reading it. :)

I know what you mean. When I first read it I was so sad and I could actually picture the kitty in myhead, looking thin and hungry. :(


Thank goodness it had a happy ending. I gave me cats an extra kiss the night I read it. It gives new meaning to he word "stray". So very sad.



Don't worry about not answering sooner, I am just glad it's done! LOL That was a very long puzzle!:eek: ;)
