Why do Cats

Written by: Nigel Fox

Demand a fuss when they’re wet
have three names

Sit on your lap when you are just about to leave
a nickname 

Sleep in front of a fire and make you feel warmer
a formal name

Have no Soul and so denied an entry to heaven
a secret name

But still wind around St.Peter’s ankles at the gates
purr so loudly on quiet Sunday mornings
