We All Have that One Sibling

We all have that one sibling who has to have the attention, right? I am a laid-back Tom, and happy without attention, day and night. My sister Tallahassee is one who needs to delight a room. Full of strangers or whoever, but she has never found a groom. Tallahassee is always hounding me to put myself on social media. I cannot imagine why I would have to, I have six litters to already feed-ee-ah. It is easier to let her take my photograph than argue, so I do. Let’s have your best side, she tells me, and bat your eyes of blue. Handsome Tom. Seeks Casual Lady friend with warm beds. Likes to walk in the park, chase mice down alleys and bite off heads. Don’t put that! I tell her; they’ll know I like to eat the best part! That would not be the way to any feline’s meowing heart! So she rewrites it and takes the photo several ways and positions. She also rewrites my ad, I think we’re on the sixteenth composition. The funniest part of all to me is that on the photo she uploaded. She is peering into the camera like a voyeur who exploded!

I think you are pulling my leg, Caren. It took me a while to figure out this is a poem about sibling cats, right?
