Petty

But they already had a cat ME Meow How could they Making me share my chow My bed My toy rat with the ripped head My nip, my nap, my blue blanket with the frayed ribbon I don't know if I can ever forgive em. But they already had a reader in the group ME M is for Mitten, can't you see We did not need an Elenore She steals my lines and interrupts my joke She makes me gag She makes me choke She sat in my chair How will I go on from here But they already chose first chair ME My violin solo was so sweet Now I have to share Not fair No treat Another fiddler I can't beat The agony of broken bows and stepped on feet I have no harmony left inside of me

Broken bow....you'll have to pizzicato...If you're good we'll open the cage to the 'Hot Canary'....I love this poem, being a cat person I can sympathize. Love, daver

Ooooh, you have captured the feline territorial personality so well, Autumn! Laughed out loud throughout this poem. (I actually had one cat run away a couple days after I brought a new kitten home.) Cats can be so jealous! Mine have actually fought about which can sit on my lap. Can you imagine what it's like to have three growling cats trying to stake out their territory on your lap? Awesome poem! Loved it! (A "favorite" now.)
