My cat is gray, with chirps- she meows a serenade; and she has a swagger, sashay, and sway, believes I am her maid ! With her toy mouse she likes to parade and to prance, and sometimes she just lays on my lap in a trance; and will nip if given a chance, instead of with her toys play ! She loves outside, strutting- she has a pompous gait; as she walks, swaggers with blustery pride, I leap to close the garden gate ! After checking each corner she finds some shade, but, if there is noise she comes flying to me- afraid. Must drink my tea and my cupboards invade, and far under bed hide ! "But no matter what, I love my cat to pieces, and pieces and pieces . . .
