Nine Lives

Written by: Melani Udaeta

Safe to say there are never too many cats,
Meowing to say hello greeting you at the door; 
Stepping silently, jumping all around snuggling on the couch;
Nine lives I am told? The chances they take!
Climbing trees, in and out of situations with ease;
They do what they want and they fear nothing;
Dodging cars! Always a kiss away on the street;
Content to roam until they finally find a home
We fall for those eyes that hold 9 lives.
