In my life, I’ve had about five . . . . . . . . . . . DOGS
What naughty chewing little beasts they . . . ARE
Nonetheless, I still think they are . . . . . . . . .COOL;
However, I’ve had twice as many . . . . . . . .. CATS
Independent, sweet and clean they usually . . ARE
For that, I find cats to be just a tad bit. . . . COOLER

I know you, you're godless like me, and to the natives We Are The Wandering dead. Headless in sunshine, blind in the wilderness. I know you, you're the sister of death that's true. Your red lips caress mine as I choke upon embers. I'm awaiting life to be stripped from these bones. I smoke the feathers from the angels round here, and laugh with the devil. She sleeps at my feet. I found a home down here. She's the one who'll burn down the temple. She's the one who shall coerce the swarms. I know she'll do anything and more.

Nine lives are bestowed upon a cat to live,
In this world full of danger we travel through.
None may escape the final time appointed to them,
Even the cat has it's last moment to breathe.
Living a life of adventure, demands some extra chances,
It's the curious cat, trapped, who really needs it.
Vain cats cleaning themselves on a slim, lofty ledge.
Excitable cats trying to catch the mysterious red dot.
Silly cats flipping their tails at a dog pack.
For the "Nine" contest.

Hello, all my fuzzy friends
Embarrassed, but I gottah tell you that cats and dogs are my buddies
Loving my family and friends...so...much
Live life to the fullest and to the best of your ability
Ohhh...what a world full of positivity and negativity...what a messed-up world
Krazy kool kats drive me nuts
Idolizing their cuteness and their noisiness
Totally tricked by their fickle ways
Trained to make an excuse that it's "one of those days"
Yeah...my pets are the best and cutest!

How varied in color they are
One after another, a palette
Under house cat code
Some will stay true to their species others get spoiled
Everyone has their own individuality.
Cats never slow down
Are hyperactive comets, ricocheting
Throughout a house
Settling down is forgotten completely.

N ows here the place Joy Adams was chased
A s the lion cubs let loose followed her scent
I n haste through stores and stalls in riotous glee
R ight to her they led George he begged her to stay
O utwitted in her ploy to go she tried again to leave
B ut the lion cubs sure had other ideas and circled her
I nstead she found that no way could she leave them

knife in hand…I chop
up chunks of meat
for my pet jaguar…he
fires me up with
painful passion – he
hands me one of his
9 lives with his
handy, giant paw . .
. I'm shocked - I
didn't expect this
at all . . . he
caught me before I
was gonna make an
embarrassing fall -
thank you, fuzzy
friend for helping
me stand tall and
Ahh! Look at his
talons…his claws rip
through human flesh
by the name of Spy
Jaggerswag, has a
desire to hunt down
anything that moves;
he even chews up
roaches when he sees
them, crawling about
on the forest floor
or on a forest tree
Giving Spy his meal
with boldness by
throwing it into his
big bowl, he runs
hungrily towards his
bowl and devours it
in seconds with one
bite literally – I
hesitate with sudden
fear…ooh…at least it
wasn’t a chunk of
me, right? He won’t
eat me up – I’m his
vicious and spiteful
at times - run with
your might - let me
race you to see who
wins - this will be
totally tight! We're
flight, despite our
lack of light, but
we're not succumbed
to fright, alright?
xD You're something
else - we sit on the
sparkling anew in a
is how I describe
wildness I must add!
His coat is as black
as midnight and his
eyes penetrate my
soul – green and
yellow with twisted,
and blazing angst
Ah yes, he has a
good side of him
nevertheless – he’s
as harmless as a
kitten and I massage
ebony fur with
and I have no fear
when he’s near my
side – he saves me
trouble and he’s not
a foe, but he’s a
though at first I
of him – he doesn’t
intimidate me, but
still catches me off
guard and I tease
him back…we do play
pretty rough no
doubt about that!
RAWRZ! He sneaks
right behind me,
scaring me out of my
wits – that silly,
gigantic cat! He’s
but he does have a
bit of spunk and
awesomeness in him!
I thank Spy for not
having me for his
feast – he’s burly,
brave and beast!
dedicated to my
buddy/big black cat
by the name of Spy.
He's one of my
favorite pets of all
time. No joke!

Cats are a curious lot
All species playful; some dangerous
They care for their own
Some, like people, are loners.
Copyright © M. L. Kiser | Year Posted 2014
Crawling, furry pet
Aggressive, yet so lovable
Trying to get any sign of attention and winning it
No worries planted in their feeble brains
Attractive and a clever animal
Pleasurable extra family member, always keeping me busy!

C ould you snuggle and relinquish half a purr
A ll that cream and salmon should buy me cuddle time
T ake a minute please to delay the grooming of your fur
Sky eyed beauty-- dissolve me for a moment in your blue sublime.

Soon to be is Spring you see
Please breathe what last winter air there be
Ring and do sing in tune with merry ole me and too with you
I do try to be some guy, real fly freaky fly guy . . . guy
Nude is this loon who blows his balloon for this bodacious dude
Grand spring brings Earth her color back, reactivity shining light upon winter's gloom giving nature her mother back.
I am coming so soon
So prepare for this seasons bloom
Cats and rats hit bats with ball caps
On they go and stop for a show
Man oh man this land is a lot like quick sand
I see you, do you see me too?
Not any one problem, that sun rays cannot solve um
Golly by dolly, lets cart a path for grand pappy Wally
She came over, like red rover she came over and over...
once a month to drink punch for lunch with a flute player named Monk
Over and out, roger copies her count, just in time to shout
Not so fast there miss spring, it is still winter until that bell rings its tune... singing, spring is coming soon.

F urry and soft, never a threat.
E ach cat that I have ever met,
L onging for pet.
I n each one I have found some quirk.
N othing can match their feline smirk.
E each one berserk.
