Cat and Twine


April Poetry Month Poem Å 24

A big ball of twine lay still on the floor

The cat crouched low and he eyed it

He lurched with such force he slid through the door

Rolled over twice, and defied it


He bit it, he pulled it and tore it apart

His whole body caught in a mangle

The more he twisted and wiggled around

The tighter became the tangle


He reared up his paws and slapped it

Take this! And be still while I swatcha!

Touche! Said the twine as it tightened its grip

You're dead! Mr. Cat! GOTCHA!

Voted up and funny. Enjoyed the video. Love cats and their sheer genius for getting into certain situations. My cat Sid got himself into a tight and narrow box recently and couldn't back out. You never heard such sounds. lol Had to pull him out.

Hey wetnose. They are real entertainers. Love them

lipnancy, the best video I could find, but I've seen a lot more activity in real life. They are crazy!

Gypsy, I know, they are a mess! I had one that wouldn't stay off the roof top, and whinned to get down.

This poem shows how well you observe such incredible events as the cats playing with the yarn. Cats are the most amazing animals to watch! Jamie
