SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT

I found this little poem when scrolling through some cat poems and thought the words so beautiful I just had to share them with you.  If you are a dog lover then you will have to bear with me.  I do like dogs but cats always come first with me.

WHAT IS A CAT?  (Author unknown)

Gentle eyes that see so much, paws that have a gentle touch.
Purrs to signal "all is well" and show more love than words can tell.
Graceful movements touched with pride, a calming presence by our side.
A friendship that will last and grow, small wonder why we love them so.

BECAUSE I'M ONLY HUMAN

Because I'm only human, it's sometimes hard to be
The wise, all knowing creature that my cat expects of me.
And so I pray for special help, to somehow understand
The subtle implications of each proud miaowed command.
Oh, let me not forget that chairs were put on earth to shred;
And what I like to call a lap is actually a cat bed.
I know it's really lots to ask but please, oh please, take pity;
And though I'm only human, make me worth of my kitty!

My lap to Candy is not just a cat bed but is sometimes also used as a bathroom while she sits and has a wash!!!  I often wonder how she keeps her balance but she never falters.

  1. Wouldn't it be lovely to be as supple and as flexible as a cat?

    1. Oh yes, they seem to have life quite perfected to suit them. If only everyone loved them as much as we do.

    1. I sometimes feel the more independent a cat, the more we love them.

  5. This is nice and describes cats and us perfectly. I'm rather glad Angel doesn't like to sit on laps. Since I'm constantly getting up and down for something or other, he'd be disturbed all the time.

    1. When I found I thought it just perfect. Candy sits on my lap of an evening once I am settled. I don't sit in the living room a lot during the day but then am usually up and down which Candy takes in her stride.
      My daughter has two cats and the younger one is so large he doesn't really fit on her lap although he tries very hard. So frustrating for both of them.
