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.
