I did taw a puddy tat

Now welcome back the lovely lynx!
We thought he teetered on the brynx
Of several causes of extynx-
ion; scientists, however, note a
New upsurge in Minnesota.
Sixty now make up its quota
Of this silky feline predator
(Who we hope is not a snob cat,
Since your very humble editor
Thought that he was just a bobcat.)

Thirty now wear GPS.
Do the others find them geeky?
Or is it dressing to impress,
Stylish, and slightly cheeky?
Anyhow, they're just the thynx
For tracking down a missing lynx.

We wish they weren't quite so rare
(Since we are not a snowshoe hare);
To help them get hooked up and bred,
We could provide cell phones instead.

Maybe the cats could get a deal on the cell phones that the US military found in Iraq. I understand that they come fully charged.

PS. What is the plural of "lynx?"
