Oh them funny cats!

Cats are like people,

only with fur.*

Cats are like monkeys,

only they purr.


Cats are wild and free,

They aren't like you and me.

Cats are wild and free,

Oh, how silly they seem to be.


Cats love to play,

They play the night around.

Cats love to play,

But they sleep til sundown.


Cats have it made

as they soak up the sun.

Cats have it made,

Oh, how I wish I were one!


Now I must end this little ditty,

I find that to be a pity.

Now I must end this little ditty,

"Nuff said about the noble kitty.



*The first two lines of this poem are by somebody famous, but I can't find the author.

Funniest dang cat video I ever saw!

I was smiling all the way through this. I was reminded of Green Eggs and Ham....and that is a high compliment indeed. Well done Miz B.

Yes, it is a great compliment, thank you, Billy Buc. I never thought of Dr. Seuss when I wrote this. I wrote it because the lines about children with fur and monkeys and purr kept running through my head. You know, like one of those stupid songs you can't get rid of.

Amusing little poem. Cats can be comforting. Looking forward to more of your poetic odes.

Thank you Mel, I tried to answer your comment last weekend at home, but my computer just doesn't like HP, seems like. Had to wait until I got time at work. Yes, cats are comforting. Mr. B is recuperating from knee replacement surgery, and both of ours are giving him lots of sympathy.

Cats are silly charming creatures! This hub made me miss Oreo, our house cat who vanished years ago. *sad face*

Nice, enjoyable read! Perfectly what I needed at the end of a very long day!

Thank you.

I'm so sorry about your Oreo. We've had two cats to disappear, Seaweed in 1990 and Andy in 1999. We still miss them and will always wonder what happened to them. Since Andy disappeared, we don't allow our cats to go outside. Glad you enjoyed my silliness. Thank you.

I call my cat "monkey" sometimes 'cause he is full of hijinks! Other times he is so cute and then he has his comedic moments!


MizBejabbers profile image

MizBejabbers 2 years ago Author

"Monkey"? What a coincidence. I have always called Tas "monkey man", and now our latest acquisition is nicknamed "monkey girl" because of the hijiks. Tas has slowed down now because of diabetes, so he isn't as monkyish as he used to be. Thanks for the comment, Scribnet.

There must be pets in Heaven, but let me think a second, yikes! How many of them would be waiting for me to feed, pet, and brush them?


MizBejabbers profile image

MizBejabbers 2 years ago Author

That's a good thought, I hope all of mine, including dogs, cats and turtles are waiting for me to brush. Wups, I don't think the turtles would like a brushing! Very funny Persp.

This was funny MizBejabbers. I had to smile, and the video was a hoot. We have four cats. You may enjoy my micro-poem "Sibling Rivalry". Can't say why though it has a surprise ending.


MizBejabbers profile image

MizBejabbers 2 years ago Author

Thanks, John. I used to have fur cats but we are now down to two and hope to keep it that way for awhile. I'm going to hunt up your "Sibling rivalry" right now.

LOL, so cute and so true! We have had cats over the years, and they are truly unique creatures and have their own unique ways about them. Our cat, George, loves to hop up on the side of the tub and drink water from the faucet, when he has plenty of water in his bowl that is fresh daily? LOL Thank you for the smiles and that video is too cute!

Up and more, tweeting and pinning

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,

Faith Reaper


MizBejabbers profile image

MizBejabbers 2 years ago Author

Thanks, Faith. Cats always prefer running water to that sitting idly in the bowl. One of our cats swishes the water with her paw to make it move, and then it gets dirty fast. Thanks for the tweet and pinning!

Cats are a blast

always forgiving out past

They judge our company

without being asked

letting us know who makes the pass

although it's usually not many.

They love us for life

sensing all of our strife

When we're down

They all gather round

Sticking close by like

a loving wife.

Cats are fun and sly like foxes.

Now if only I could get them

to clean their own litter boxes!

Ha ha. Just a spur of a moment thang off the top of my head. Like it or lump it. It's just something I said!


MizBejabbers profile image

MizBejabbers 2 years ago Author

That is so cute, I love it! My older model cat, Tas, stayed right with me when I broke my leg this winter. He would lay across the broken leg as if to heal it. I think they are psychic. Thanks a bunch!


bravewarrior profile image

bravewarrior 2 years ago from Central Florida

They are psychic, MizBe. Whenever I'm sick, blue, or recovering from surgery, one of my three deems him/herself my care giver. They never leave my side. And never tire. Cats are awesome people!

Yes, my cats are grown and I miss kittens. Sometimes I go to my son's house just to watch his, but they're growing up, too.

Nadine, somehow I missed your comment, but probably because HP retired this hub before I could comment. I'm so sorry. Thank you for reading and commenting.
