Cat and Twine

Updated on April 23, 2012

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!


Cat and twine

      All of my school aged kodids are involved with some kind of extra-curricular activy. My 16 year old son is on the drumline at his high school, my pre-teen daughter is on the volleyball and softball teams and my 8 year old son is half way to his black belt in Taekwondo.My little guy who stays home with me and does flash cards during the day has extra-curricular activites of napping and cuddling with Mommy and Daddy! =)

      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

      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.
