Hey I Am Looking At You

Updated on November 22, 2014

I Have A Pair Of Eyes Too

I may be a cat

Did you forget I have feelings ?

You come home from your long day at work

I greet you at the door and you say hold on wait till I get in the house

Then I try to catch up to you as you run in the other room

You yell at me for being under your feet

Even though I was the one that got stepped on

You go the bathroom and hop in a shower

I have to wait even longer

For you to go one day without a shower I hear you complain how grimy and awful you feel

How about me ?

I go years

Yes I wash myself because you won't let me use the shower or the tub

I give you hints

I walk on the outside of the tub and you tell me get off that

You are going to fall in

That is the whole idea

I hop on the toilet with the seat down

Trying to cut you off at the pass

You tell me to get down

How many hints do I have to give you ?

Before you get the big picture

Then you complain I make a mess and spill my food all over

Haven't you ever heard of a food fight ?

It works in all the movies I see

Well I guess I have no choice eating the same old food day after day

Even though I watch you fix different meals five days a week

Only two days you have leftovers

I wouldn't mind just two days

Once again you say he likes it but never ask me for my opinion

I am standing here on the edge of the counter

Where I am forbidden to be

Proudly I raise my head and paws

So you can see I mean business

I am here to get equal rights for cats

I have read how it took years for people to get equal rights

Fighting long and hard for their beliefs

It started for people of a different color

Then woman and now people that like other people of the same sex

I think it is silly that people argue over the stupidest things

Where cats have real problems that have to be addressed

Now you go in to watch t.v.

So I hop up on your lap and begin to kneed you

You pat me for awhile to calm me down

I start to realize this isn't such a bad idea

It is harder than it looks to fight for your rights

I begin to settle in for the rest of the night

You found my soft spot

Under my chin and behind my ears

I guess I wouldn't make a good spokesperson

Since I can't be mad at you for long

It's not in my nature

I think for now I will curl into a ball

Have a little more time to think things over

Maybe I should be happy

Just being a cat with no fleas

Is good enough for me

Thank you so much for reading and reminding us all of the love of the Lord.It makes me feel good inside when I hear that friends I know are happy. Have a wonderful night.

      Hi DRERAM ON. To catch the momentum the way you has interpreted a cat's sensation experienced through touch, suggest intense study of a "friend". As a secret revealed to me since we do not have cat for long time now , and that time they were pats living mostly outside with different assignment as we se them in modern world now.

      Voted interesting.

      bigj1969 We can all learn from our animals. They have wonderful lessons about life if we love them and include them in our life. We also have a three legged cat in our neighborhood. We don't know the owner but we nicknamed him tripod. He is a little skiddish so we can't get to close. Thank you for sharing.

      bigj1969 Thank you for reading and commenting. My cat Charlotte helped me fix some of the errors I missed the first time around. She would love to know your cats name and if you could pass the word along next Tuesday night is cats night out if your cat is not doing anything. Charlotte says it will be a fun time to discuss more cat issues and have a couple of cat treats.
