Cat or Mouse

Source


I wonder if you’re an asset,

or liability around the house?

are you a clever cat, my friend,

or are you but the mouse?

are you a quick mouse-catcher

who keeps the house pest free

or are you the pesky whiskered rat

who scurries to quickly flee?

I cannot help but wonder

If an asset you might be…

Or are you, like the little rat,

A house liability?

We have two house cats that once belonged to our children, and four feral cats outside who adopted us.

They are all worthless pests that we love dearly.

Maybe I could borrow one of your cats for my Mouse on the Keypad. I have a lurcher and a spaniel but no cats.

My sweet Sabrina is most definitely an asset mouse catcher if need be, she keeps em at bay by simply being present at their door, should they dare squeak forward it will be their last day on the hardwood floor, as Sabrina licks her chops and swallow the mouse whole. he he he. Cute poem, put a smile on both our pusses....

saddlerider, the perfect example of an asset, your Sabrina! Its a funny little thing but I actually had my boys in mind when I wrote this...they are all grown now and "evaluators" in their own rights but I do remember the day when I so wished for a few little assets...when I had a house full of skurring little rats! LOLOLOL
