The Cat That Didn’t Like Poetry
didn’t have a hat;
he knew that respectable cats
didn’t go with things like that.
Cat’s don’t need to be dressed like clowns;
and a cat in a hat has less ups than downs;
due to the fact that a rhyme in time
doesn’t save lives numbering nine
but, causes much vexation
at the poor cat’s situation
Never laugh at the feline friend
or he’ll get you in the end.
Subtitle: Eaten By Cats
All through her life
She was eaten by cats;
(so they grow)’
She gave them names
So she’d know
which was which;
Toys she supplied
And scratching posts, too;
She had more big cats
Than the tiniest zoo.
And as she grew older
The cats came and went
She replaced a lost ‘kitty’
With a ‘kitty’ from Kent
(Oh, yes, she adopted them, too!)
And the numbers increased
There were dozens and more;
She kept fifty in the house
And had another fifty at the door.
Then, one day, she died;
And the cats were not fed:
“Feed us, Feed us! Here and now!”
Which is what they were saying with their ‘Me-ow, meow!” It is said.
The cats did ask
The cats did beg
Until one hungry tabby
Sniffed hungrily at a leg…

Tabitha Fetches a Stick by Graeme Sandford
When she was a kitten, Tabitha shocked us by barking.
Now, one of the things that you are taught (or discover) in life is that cats miaow and dogs bark; sometimes even before you can count up to a gazillion. To have this fundamental tenet turned topsy-turvy and upside down on its head is to cause the mind to go into premature meltdown (minds generally go into meltdown much later in life) as much as black and white suddenly changing places or gravity to work in the opposite way – but we wouldn’t lose so many balloons, would we?
Tabitha not only barked; she fetched sticks; chewed upon bones; howled when outside; to be let in; chased parked cars; and loved being in the car with her head stuck out the window as the parked cars flew by.
We got used to her ways; but, people, meeting her for the first time; were taken aback at her growling; until she decided they were harmless; may have humpable legs; or were going to take her for a walk… on a lead. Tabitha is one in a… well, one in a huge number (perhaps very near a gazillion) when it comes to pets.
