April Poetry ~ from The Cat

because i’m your cat
i shall sit here
with my pretty little white paws
my tail delicately curved
and my full belly expanding
and stare at you 
until
you give in
and if that does not work
i will chase follow you
throughout the house
and meow at you
in my cutest voice
until you see
that i want you
to pay attention only to me
while you pet me
scratch under my chin
and make all those
loving silly sounds
and, of course,
feed me
in return
i will purr my loudest
making you think
that you are the cause of it all
you humans
take a while to catch on
sometimes
but i am patient
and will continue 
this same routine
so i can get 
what i want
which is
your total
undivided
loving
devoted
attention

Even the cat who owns me likes poetry. Who knew?

  1. My cat probably thinks along the same lines. Given her young age and her energy, she'd probably have a lot more to say (especially when it comes to the dog).
