Ode to Cats and Kate

Cats in the hallway, cats on the stairs

everywhere you look, a cat sits and stares.


Orange cats, black cats, grey cats and white

cats meowing hungrily morning noon and night.


How many cats can liive with you at once?

One to four, ten or more - surely that's too much.


Rescue cats, newborn cats, cats that wandered in

fat cats, furry cats, cats that are sleek and thin.


Cats in the garden, and high up on the roof

cats in the pantry , scavenging all the food.


Love them or hate them cats are everywhere

sleeping on the bed or in your favourite chair.


Scratching up the sofas, litter on the floor

hair left on the pillows, paw marks on the door.


Cats who like to scratch, cats who like to purr

cats who like to sit on you and cover you in fur.


Which ever kind of cat you know, love, live with, or hate

None can be so perfect as our cute little Kate.

      This was so cute. What a great poem. Your love for cats, and Kate came through. Reminded me a bit of a Dr. Seuss story!

      I love cats! Not like the people have twenty, but either one or two at a time. Just one right now. My first cat was when I was 1 1/2. Have a picture of him sitting on my lap. All you can see is my head and feet. lol, it was cute. Great hub.
