Oh, fickle friendly fearful feline,
Ne'er a pet be so sublime;
Playful licking leaping purring,
Even while you're sleeping stirring.
Watchful with a wary eye,
Careful cunning in disguise.
Our fussy flip and fuzzy friend,
We're thankful that you condescend
And bless us with your loving being,
Though the dog is disagreeing.
We kneel before your regal paws
With which you shred and kneed and claw,
But with that warm and funny face,
A faithful friend we can't replace.
