Sundae and the Sunday Paper

Her name is Sundae, with four white paws...
Whatever her scheme whatever her cause
If I scan the newspaper, digesting the news
My effort is vain, ...there is simply no use!
Perhaps it is Sundae's practical joke...
It seems that this cat has a strong jealous streak!
For she prods and she pokes, craving my strokes
She pokes holes in the paper....hops onto my knees
Purring with ease....getting under my chin...with her Cheshire grin
Pushing aside, or squeezing within

She paws at my paper, this pesky dear pet
Requiring attention, till her own needs are met!
If I’m scanning a letter, there's a page to be read
I must stop what I'm doing, and love her instead!

It's all in her skill...wrinkled papers.....her thrill...
She's a sassy old cat, jealous lover, in's as simple as that!

    My daughter's tabby is Jimmy or James. Don't you wish humanity could learn to love like animals do, unconditionally? James is spoiled. He deserves to be. I'm sure Sundae does too.

    Aaahhh - this is so cute and downright wholesome. I think I could learn a few tricks from Sundae - we could all use more attention. This is a fun read - not only for the story it tells but the wordflow, rhyme and rythmn make it delightful to read. Joe

    I enjoyed reading your poem, Carrie. I have a cat, also. If we have the newspaper spread out on the kitchen table, trying to read it, he will jump up and lay in the middle of it. Best wishes in the contest. Love, Kim
