Frilly Rolly Furlly

Updated on April 21, 2012

Sleep, eat, and time I want to come back as a cat!

I guess I need to get him a stool?

How did it happen?

Can’t be sure where to find it,

That Frilly Rolly Furlly.

It wanders to and fro.

Sometimes stable as a box,

Sometimes rolling like a ball.

The last I think I saw it

Was walking down the hall

And Frilly Rolly Furlly,

As clever as a fox,

Knew right where I would go.

And waited, silent as a kit,

‘til round the corner unwary

It startled me and so,

Had I but been a canary,

It could’ve roasted me on a spit.

No, Frilly Rolly Furlly

Can be quite dormant, too.

When I lie flat for the telly

It lies right there, still too,

One leg outstretched for warning,

Should I but move to go,

If not until the morning,

That’s all it needs to know.

Well trained I am and ready,

The Majesty’s day schedule

Is clock-fixed in my brain;

It surely fixed the rule

That even when it’s heady

The schedule must remain:

Sleep, eat, hunt and steady

No slightest deviation,

No subrogated clause,

Lest Frilly Rolly Furlly

Should dig me with its claws.

One insult I did give it

To keep it close to home.

A first and last finale

No longer he to roam,

The vet was sure and swift

The he that was before,

Received the “it” my gift.

~ ~ ~~ ~ ~

If the gift could be undone,

No way I would relent,

It’s youth remains unspent.

So Frilly Rolly Furlly

A kitten then and now.

Will keep right on its playing,

Just like its playing now.

      cherylone: Manolie suggests I make a good video of Mau-Mau's antics, but I don't know if it would be fair to take even five minutes of every cat-loving Hubber's time just for the laughs and chuckles. What do you think?

      From the gist of all the comments: funny/memories/smiles/cute/purr(fect?)

      I'm glad it brings the smiles and all. Thanks for the Comments.

      This is just tooooo funny! At least you know who's boss, Perspy - that takes a real man! I also know who's boss in my house - my 90 pound, 13 year old black lab/dobermanX who spoons with me nightly and let's me out when she needs to go! LOL voting and would vote again if i could!

      This is a fantastic hub. Kittens are so cute and fun to play with. I have had cats all my life. They are sweet, and can catch your heart. The purr is wonderful Thank you for this hub. I love it!

      Voted up and funny! My cat Sid is quite independent. He is also very long so he can actually reach doorknobs when he wants to but he likes door service. lol We have the possibility of leaving our window in the kitchen open for Sid to go out whenever he wants which is much less than I would like as he sleeps like always when he's not eating. But with the spring he'll spend more time out than in. What is his Majesty's name? I love that cute pic of him.
