Ode to Cats

Come 'ere kitty eyes so green Tell me why you're so dang mean Climbin' curtins and the walls Midnight rampage through the halls Chasin' air but never rats You should know I hate cats! 9/24/2005~db©deborah burch *just a note: i dont hate cats...(as long as they realize and behave as dogs)...any i have been owned by realize this and quickly learn to fetch, come, sit, no, and master the english language...as such....this kitten(now a cat) is my son's: Oliver, appropriatly named, who is the real-life version of "Garfield" in every possible way...and dearly loved :) big hugs~deb

As an owner of both cats and dogs I love this. Of the two cats I have one acts more like a dog and the other stays much to herself and if you didn't know she lived here you wouldn't. I love the individual personalities of each of my animals. My kind of poem another fun read. Huggs TLee

I grew up with hunting dogs-thinking cats were worthless as pets. My wife brought home Molly, a house cat. A cat in the house went against every nerve in my body but I gave in to the wife. As time passed- Molly became a great family pet. And like unto family- we cried when she died- including me. Loved your poem!!

Deborah this is a fun one! My Siamese is adorable but moody just like most cats. He's a smart as a dog and comes when I call but that is about the extent of his dog-like behavior. Have yourself a great weekend!

Ha ha, now this is a hilarious write! I just love how cats chase through the halls in the middle of the night, and how they climb curtains, that's just what they are! Their personalities come out throughout their lives, even though some are crazy! I really enjoyed your poem that I have read this evening! Great Work!!

Cute one..Mine comes to me on the porch and wants to rub on me and get in my lap then the next thing I know she will attempt to bite me..To me that is so scary to think about getting a bite from a cat with those long pointed teeth and no telling what bacteria in there..Enjoyed reading this afternoon..Sara
