What is to be Learnt From a Cat?


Today matters most.
Sit in the best place;
if you don’t,
some other cat will.
If you want food,
smooch for it.
If you don’t like being
in the car, miaow.
Miaow. Miaow.
Good looks get you
lots of attention.
If it rolls, chase it.
If it dangles, bat it
with a testing paw.
Fish is good.
There is always time
for a thorough wash.
A box is a very
good place to be.
Anywhere high up
is also good. So put
me in a box and send
me to heaven…
