GISELLE AND MOM

GISELLE AND MOM My name is La Belle Giselle, Round my neck is a bell, Love my mom, who feeds me, But sneak out for a midnight Snack up our lovely oak tree, Or wander in the garden For a yummy Meal, fill my tummy Then feel content, fat and cool, Marcelle knows what I’m up to, He’s no bodies fool. He’s getting old, so sleeps, Just sleeps and purrs, Next to Dad, both of Us have such silky furs! I always bring a small tit bit For Marcelle, but tonight split It in two, one for you, Which I always do, Giselle whispers to Marcelle, And one for mom She will be so proud Of me, no doubt! My lips are all bloody And my whiskers too, Had to tiptoe back in, but clean Any mousy or grasshopper Blood or goo, too true, And jump up on the duvet You bet, And knead, a comfortable place Next to mum, my own space! Killer by night and by day Lovable kitty, Mom always lets me have my way! Next morning, rudely awoken By screams and a yell Last night I had found out how To loosen my bell, So mom couldn't hear And therefore tell, But I no longer felt swell, For there was a nasty smell, Come here kitty cat said mum, As she refastened my loose bell, Sorry, I wanted to say, It was merely a gift, To say wow what a great face lift, But will never, ever deign, Bring you a dead mouse again!

I am sooooooo familiar with this. We have to understand, generousity is generousity; take comfort in the fact that you are cared for. Furbaby meant well.

Know Giselle look alikes well. Cats are hunters ours loved to show us their success by putting the catch on the back door step. Your verse reminds me much like our reality - thank you Jennifer; stay safe - Lindsay

Yes, all cats do the same, maybe it's in their DNA! Back door is OK but bedroom must have been a little more than a mere surprise! glad the poem sounded realistic and familiar. Blessings Lindsay, Jennifer.

Jennifer, Very well description of those feline ways. Giving up one's own hard fought prize and sharing a dinner. No finer gift can anyone hope for. -Richard

I guess so, it is their favorite thing to do, normally on the back step - strange but one of our labbys also used to do the same.. Thank you Charlie for the comment and the wishes, Blessings, Jennifer.
