Oh to be a Cat!

The life of a cat,
Has long been something that,
I have secretly somewhat aspired to.
It would be so nice,
To spend time chasing mice,
And recover with a snooze on the lean-to.
To sleep through the day,
Have your wishes obeyed,
And always have someone to talk to.
To be sure of a stroke,
Or a most friendly poke,
And your every need most always seen to.
The only thing is,
There are some things I’d miss,
Even though it’s a life I aspire to,
Could I really slow down,
In this new life I’d found,
Is it something I’d quickly adjust to?
When all’ssaid and done,
I think my life’s the one,
That I’m really far better attuned to.
So whilst stroking my cat,
I confide in her that,
Her life looks fun, but then so does mine too.

  1. I don’t think there is any doubt Pooky about the virtues of our life over that of a cat. Cat’s will never run a marathon, go to school, become a Dr, write great fun poetry, engage correspondents all round the world. Look what you would miss out on and us as well.


  2. Very cute, Pooky! 🙂
