I Am The Best

Have You Come To Shake My Paw ?

I sit here relaxing

You give me a funny look

You ask me why?

I look at you with a slight grin

You love what I do

It's who I am

You have watched me many times in the past

It's typical of me to be mischievous

Tipping over picture frames and decorations

I come so close to the edge

I enjoy each moment of uncertainty

Where I walk in between many objects at one time

You are so concerned

You watch as things shake

I have a long history

I love to climb

Especially high places

I am careful not to fall

Unfortunately everything I touch

Is so lucky

So here I sit planning my next climb

Maybe later tonight when you are asleep

It is a real big challenge when I do things in the dark

Sometimes early morning is best

Just before the alarm clock goes off

I have beat my old record by three whole seconds

Climbing the stereo leaping just above the flat screen t.v

I don't have an audience

But my acts are phenomenal

I should of been in a circus

But instead I am here

Your little darling

Sometimes you call me

A Great Pain In My Ask

It must be someone famous

That is fearless and daring

Like Evil Kenivel

A few times I snuck out the door

I walked across the railing on the back deck

You scooped me up

Afraid for my life

Before I could make a giant leap to the roof

Maybe next time

I am going to take a nap and dream .

You walk away shaking your head

Sorry I can not perform right now

I need my beauty rest

But soon I will surprise you again

With a feet that will keep you on your toes and biting your lower lip

I know each time you love me

By how loud you scream my name

Charlette

Charlette get down from there

I look back at you

Mommy don't worry don't fear

The great Charlette is here

Charlette is the most adorable narcissist in the entirety of human and animal history. You have captured the cat and human relationship so well, so charmingly filled with laughter and love. Anyone who wants to understand cats has got to read this:)

grand old lady Charlette takes a bow. She was up early practicing her high wire act on our curtains and just hanging on deciding to leap to the window or not. Practice makes perfect she purrs quietly. Dim Flaxenwick I had lots of help writing this. Charlette still says I need to work on my story to tell the world how talented she is. Thank you both for reading and your outstanding comments. Have a great day.

I love this! It reminds me of my cat Hiro, he is famous for knocking over coffee cups and wine glasses in the midst of his shenanigans. Thank you for sharing, I voted up!

Lisawilliamsj Charlette is already trying to locate Hiro so they can have a dynamic duo. Charlette loves to be creative and wild at the same time. Thank you for reading and sharing your own cat stories. I love all cats they are so different in their personalities from one to another.

Absolutely delightful. My Sid sends Charlette a most sincere meow. He too is taking his much needed rest and sleeping beside my laptop. I do believe Sid would be glad to have Charlette climb up with him in our blossoming apple trees in the spring.
