Can I Please Be A Cat For One Day ?

Updated on April 27, 2016

Here I Am

You have been looking all over for me

How sweet

I have been secretly propped up on this kitchen chair

The one no one ever sits in

Pushed under the table against the wall

You don't know how exhausting one day can be

While you were gone

I ran from one end of the house to the other

As if I built my own Indianapolis Speedway right through the center

Of course my day wouldn't be complete if I didn't do a little rock climbing

With no rocks in sight I had to improvise

Using the pile of books as my starting point

Then the two table lamps as the edge of the cliff

Softly I walked

Not knowing how close I was

One lamp began to sway

So I stretched to the other

I looked like a ballerina on her tippy toes

I had to hiss at a couple of birds outside my window

Showing them who is in charge

I think they could have a hearing problem

Because they looked me straight in the eyes and didn't move

I am down for my afternoon nap

It suits me just fine

I can rest up for something later

Whatever it will be

Don't eat the food

I had some earlier

I couldn't put my paw on it

Something smelled fishy

Our home is peaceful

The radio left on

Tuned to my favorite station

A little music

A little country

I got a little hungry

So I went into each cabinet

Opening each door

Reaching in with my claws

Adding with a little help of my nose

Now that's real talent

I didn't find what I was looking for

Even though each cabinet was packed with a lot of stuff

I think I am ready for my night cap nap

There is so much more to tell

I will save it for next time

My eyes are getting tired

I don't look good

With bags under each of them

Not a pretty sight

      Shanmarie I am trying to bottle my cats energy so I can write and read more. So far with Charlotte's help all I learned to do is sleep more. Thank you for reading and sharing about your cats. Every story leads to another story. So much to write so little time.

      Jodah Four cats sounds like four times the fun. I get tired with one. DDE Animals have so much love to give. My cat loves to be patted and played with. Even on my toughest days she makes me feel better. Hope everyone is having a good day. Thank you for your special comments.

      One of my cats will run me over. It doesn't matter if people are home when it is time to run. LOL

      They all have unique personalities. I love cats.

      This was a lot of fun Dream On. What a life most cats have. We have four and they all have distinct [ersonalities and are so entertaining I can't imagine life without them.

      Discordzrocks What a great start to my morning. My cat reminds me every day who deserves all the credit. As she washes her paws so particulously. Examining each one as a doctor would their patient. Thank you so much.

      Man, I love hubpages poems. This on surely brings out the creativity of being a cat. You earned a follower.
