Through a cats eyes

I live the “life of Riley” can’t you see
I’m crafty and cunning and independently free
I warm my owner up with a rub and a purr
A warm cozy blanket is what I prefer
When I choose to be aloof
I just turn my back and curl up bullet proof
I don’t mind being a house cat
Some may say because of this I’ve become a bit fat
Not to worry, never fear
I run around this house crazy and mess up your underwear
Sure, give me some yarn, that too can become boring after a time
I’d rather look out the window in the sun and lick my paws, sublime
And when you’re cooking up a great meal
That’s when I sit pretty and cry and squeal
I’m sweet and lovable and debonair
And I’ve taken over your house “I declare”
Yes I know I may sleep more than some 
But how could you resist, your furry friend is what I’ve become 


Inspired by Constance La France’s Cat tails contest

    We certainly have alot of cat lovers here as these great poems testify. Cool write Laura, however I have thrown in the towel .. I am no longer the owner I am sure. It has now reversed for sure. Can't even pretend any more! Congrats -Robert
