My Old Cat Herman



My old cat Herman sure looks like vermin When we douse him with a bucket of water His teeth start to chatter, gets mad as a hatter His master, he'd sure like to slaughter! With unearthly growls, slinks round on the prowl For a spot to get back his lost dignity Under the couch he retreats like a grouch We crack up in a mood of frivolity! One day we'll pay for this game that we play Herman's gonna rip away at our flesh With an unearthly meow, like a demon from hell He'll pounce - his dignity refreshed! So here's what I learned bout the time I got burned By this human-like piece of machinery We've now learned a truth, Herm does rule the roost He's responsible for a change in the scenery! © Jack Ellison 2012

    I do think cats imagine themselves as superior to us humans! Doggies just want to please! LOL Cheers, Jake

    Our new cat rules the roost, too. Thank goodness we don't need to bath her... I once had a cat that got fleas and had to wash her. She screamed the whole time and stood on her tippy toes trying to get the least wet as possible! Poor kitty!
