Well, we haven't had a Versponse for a while, nor a puzzle about cats, and it's a lazy summer Sunday, so what the hey.

"The cat came back, it couldn't stay away.
It was sitting on the stoep the very next day."
Not a story of pets lost and found,
But a kitty useful to have around.
Or at least it was meant that way.
Questions may be in prose or verse,
And either verbose or terse;
C'mon, cat-lovers, jump in and play!

A kitty puzzle! Oh my god!
You should know that I am awed.

Are we talking 'bout a real cat
that one day on the doormat sat?

Are people involved in the puzzle at all?
Or only felines, coughing up a fur ball?

that one day on the doormat sat?
The cat is real and material,
No character in a daytime serial
Nor novel, nor any kind of story.
And my tale's not the least gory.
In order to make this puzzle today,
No human or kitty passed away.


Are people involved in the puzzle at all?
Or only felines, coughing up a fur ball?
Yes, there are humans, not a few.
Try to determine what they do.
And the cat is singular, solo.
Just like your puzzler, is it not so?

What chance! I have a versponse planned,
But with 3 out, I've held my hand.


Are the humans related? A family? Kin?
Maybe friends or coworkers? A team? Now, to spin
Out another short query: Do they own the cat?
Just one of them owner? (Okay, that is that.)

Maybe friends or coworkers? A team?
No person in the tale is related by blood
To any other; for our purpose, the humans could
Be divided into groups, one of co-employees
The other a loosely-defined group of boys,
Though they have a similar purpose and trait.
(If you think the rhyme weak now, just wait!)

Now to spin Out another short query: Do they own the cat? Just one of them owner?
The cat, we may assume, is a stray,
Who lives by his wits, from day to day.

Does this refer to the song "The Cat Came Back"?
Where the "owner" kept trying to offload the cat in even more remote locations every verse... or in the original, tried to shoot him/blow him up, which caused the death of the owner. "But the cat came back, the very next day. They thought he was a goner, but the cat came back..."?

Ah yes, I remembered that song from long ago.
But it is not that cat, nay, nay, no.
Our kitty did not go to any distant part
By car, train, plane, bicycle or ox-cart.

Nor was he blown to kingdom come.
His fate was not so adventuresome.
He traveled on a shorter route,
By which he'd go in and out.
But neither was he your usual moggy.
In fact, this might have been done by a doggy.

Our kitty had a saucer, no doubt
At either end of his route,
Into which he could dip his snout.
That's why he would go in and out.
Into what would he go, pray say?
"Just to be good?" A cat? No way!

Did this cat have multiple dishes
To satisfy his food-wanting wishes?
Did he visit a house? An ex-owner, perhaps?
Or a public building, with visiting chaps?

We don't know, nor should we care,
Because it's neither here nor there.
"Not relevant" would be the word,
Relating to our subject befurred.

Did he visit a house? An ex-owner. perhaps?
At some point, probably in a dwelling,
Owner or ex, there's no telling.
But someone the cat knew, to be sure,
And would allow to stroke his fur.

Or a public building, with visiting chaps?
At some point, with feline grace,
The cat would visit a public place.
At least, a place where one might visit,
But not stay. So now, where is it?

In and out the cat did go,
Kaylee, that much I do know.
But not to a store of that name.
That was not the kitteh's game.
His starting point is not known.
Where he finished, on his own,
Is a sort of institution.
Come on, use your intution.

The kitteh was not educated.
He went somewhere, and there he waited.
Then he went out of there again.
To a place that might cause some pain,
Kayleetonks, or I would think so.
Care to give it another go?

A recat for you all, my friends,
To see how this story ends.
He left, we think, somebody's house,
Where he might catch an occasional mouse,
And went to a place where he had been
Before, where he had been seen
And recognized. And it was a place
Where you wouldn't want to rent a space.

Did he depart to alleyways,
Where Kitty spent his prior days?
No; the route he took is not the point.
Just find out the kind of joint
To which he went now and again,
And the answer should be plain.

Did the cat go to a bar,
Somewhere local, not too far?

Did the cat go to a bar,
Somewhere local, not too far?
Now, by 'local' what is meant?
Fairly close was the place he went,
As he travelled by cat-foot, not by car.
His goal was not an eating-place or bar.

There's a big clue in Saturday's post,
Given by your puzzle host.

A place that might cause some pain?
Is that the clue you hoped we'd gain?
A hospital with needles and pins?
Or perhaps to the veterinarians?
Or maybe the kitty did depart
for body piercing or tattoo art?
Would humans find pain at this mysterious place?
Or is the pain only for the cat to face?

A place that might cause some pain?
Is that the clue you hoped we'd gain?
No, the clue was in one rhyming word.
Now, up your loins you must gird
To find the place or location
Where you'd not want to vacation.

A hospital with needles and pins?
Or perhaps to the veterinarians?
Or maybe the kitty did depart
for body piercing or tattoo art?
The pain was exclusively mental
And not medical or dental.

Would humans find pain at this mysterious place?
Or is the pain only for the cat to face?
Now this puzzle's moving faster.
No kitty faced pain or disaster
To make this puzzler today.
But as above I did say
The pain was within the human mind.
Just find its nature and its kind.

Make his own way to a prison or jail?
Yes, Balin, you got the point.
That is what I meant by "joint."
He'd come and go into the hoosegow,
To visit, every then and now.
The guards would tolerate him.
They saw no cause to berate him.
But then something occurred
Involving our subject befurred.
What would you want if you were in jail?
Something you couldn't get by mail?

Did the cat aid breaking out
A prisoner of wicked clout?
Did he bring some tools to aid
In jailbreak or prison raid?

We have a ****SPOILER***dear Balin
The cat brought in some contraband,
To wit, a cellphone and a drill,
To a jail down in Brazil.
Fastened on a kind of har-
Ness; he didn't get far.
He was caught and intercepted,
and the clever plan detected.
Well, kitty may have been a mule,
But he's no pigeon on a stool!

The media shouldn't raise a stink:
Cats are smarter than they think!
Now he's back to his arraignment:
Thank you for this entertainment!
