Sammy purred and then she yowled,
Catnip toys make her go crazy.
Usually we play “Chasing the Ribbon,”
But today, I am too lazy.
Colder weather is settling in,
Time for the thermostat to crank it.
But the real indicator that we might freeze,
Is the kitten underneath my blanket.
Saturday morning, eight AM,
With multiple chores from which to pick,
Sammy snuggles up and starts to purr,
Now it’s 11AM, stupid Jedi Cat Trick.
Declaring you love rainy weekends,
Puts people’s noses out of joint.
“When it’s raining you can’t do anything!”
Sadly they won’t see that that’s the point.
She’s a sweet little kitten,
Living with a bone-headed Dad.
I feed, pet and play, it’s not enough,
So she gets mad.
She’ll dance on my bladder at 3 AM
To show me her pain.
But that bone-headed Daddy rolls over,
And goes to sleep again.
Sammy is quite upset with me,
And is sulking around the house.
Perhaps I should have clarified,
When I said, “I bought a new mouse.”
Thinking of myself as a manly man,
One who remains calm under pressure.
But recently it all fell down,
When I stubbed my toe on the dresser.
The nights are growing colder,
And the windows I should close.
But I’m never going to do it,
When there’s a kitten on my toes.
