The Musings of a Busy Cat

Updated on March 26, 2012

My work starts at exactly 11 in the evening

When all are asleep, even the dogs are snoring

I stay close at the rat's hole

A small break on the wall

For a small mouse to come out

And do it's midnight eating bout.

Once in a while I tiptoe upstairs

To check the 'man of the house' breathing

You see, sometimes he gasps for air,

This, a signal for me to do chest jumping.

Then I enter the 'woman of the house' room

Is she still staring at that hateful box they call the lap top?

ah, she is asleep probably dreaming of me on her lap.

Then, I peep at each dog cage,

The rascals are also deeply asleep,

Their tails a twitching, ears a quivering

Dreaming of cats a chasing.

I go back to the mouse hole,

and wait for my lively toys,

chasing them, stalking them are my rewards

and catching them is my award.

The twitching mouse has enough breath,

Befitting a 'woman of the house' morning gift,

Before she awakes it has to be at her room's doorway,

Music to my ear, when she shouts and say,

a dead mouse, oh my gosh, Sabrina!

It's almost morning, I have to wake them up,

a swish of my tail here and a swish there, is enough,

to start pandemonium in a house,

full of pet dogs, a cat, and a half-dead mouse.

      Oh, no, cats are supremely sneaky. We are much sneakier than your average fox or snake. And we're much better at keeping a straight face when accused as well.

      haha you do understand the ways of these felines. I thought only humans can do that. I often do open eyed sleep as a student. hahaha.

      That's not necessarily a trance. It could just be open eyed sleep.

      Thanks for the visit PerrytheCat. Sabrina is not only poetic, she is also quite a philosopher. She is always in a trance-deep thought I mean.

      Nothing is better than a poetic cat. Except maybe for a sneaky one.

      How I wish I could let Sabrina, my cat, out too but I am scared she'll get fleas and ticks which most of the neighborhood cats have. Your kitty is lucky.

      I am glad you find this an enjoyable read.

      Thanks for the visit and comments.

      How cute!!! I am tired after reading all this kitty does. I have a kitty and she is an inside outside kitty. She spends a greater part of the day inside and then goes out about dark and stays out till about 9. I am sure she is engaged in all manner of adventuring like your kitty here. This was fun to read....thanks for sharing.
