Wow. I never would have seen a cat in that--cool take. But what is "cockalorum"?

Helen said...

I had to google cockalorum and now I know ... small man filled with a sense of self importance! Always an education with Tess and Magpie Tales!

Great word; "cockalorum"; I will have to remember that when passing by a construction site. Great fun piece!

Obviously somebody thinks they are cock of the walk! LOL

Another definition of a cockalorun is "Someone who can strut sitting down."
Nice interpretation of he prompt.
