I am a cute little pussy cat I love to lie on my mama’s cot I always chase the ugly rat That comes to gnaw at my master’s hat I wear a striped coat of fur When I relax, my tail I stir You know it is milk, I prefer You can hear me sing a refrain- ‘purr’? On my face I have pointed whiskers But nothing as those of the tuskers Sharp are my ears, that I catch all whispers I have claws as piercing as pincers Everywhere I freely wander When I am at rest I always ponder When pulled down from the border I land on my legs, a real wonder By nature I am very cool But don’t take me to be a fool Some see me as a ball of wool Fish often makes my mouth drool I am everybody’s darling pet Those who see me give a gentle pat None can hate me, I shall bet At night I wander like a bat I have a pair of gleaming eyes They are of the shade of blue skies When I meow, each rat in terror flies Among cats and mice, there’s no compromise June.4. 2022 ~Placed Second~ Personification- Pets Talking Poetry Contest Sponsor- Constance La France

This nails down a pussy cat for sure "I am everybody’s darling pet Those who see me give a gentle pat None can hate me, I shall bet At night I wander like a bat"

What a beautiful personification and tribute to the cats in this world. I too love cats. They are very majestic creatures. I have always had them in my life. Thank you for sharing this delightful poem, dear Valsa.

Love this cute little pussy cat tale, whoa whoa whoa - she is a perfect ,little cat who has a certain purrrrrrrrfect tactic to bring down bird or mouse, she hunts, kills and eats her prey and then comes to lie on your duvet, but cleans herself purrrrrfectly first, no tell tale signs. Great poetry Valsa, If you have time, look up my poem named Felines. LOVE AND HUGS, JENNIFER.

Cute pussy cat picture and a well rhymed poem to match. Nice personification, Valsa. This will be a hard contest to judge, but yours should do well, my friend. Have a blessed day, Bill

Cats kill birds and cause birth defects in humans and sea mammals by spreading toxoplasmosis, but your poem certainly shows the pet-lovers view! Aloha!

Valsa, you did an excellent job composing this poem; it's one of my favorites that you've written. My cat is friendly even with rats, as evidenced by your verse, "When I meow, each rat in terror flies." I wish you the very best for a successful placement, my dear friend, and kind greetings
