I Don't Know What You Want

Updated on June 26, 2013

Don't Bite

You aren't being the good cat

I pat you and you are happy for a minute

Then you nip at me as if to say I had enough

You came up to me

I didn't go to you


Then you hop up on the counter where you know your not alllowed

But you do it anyway

I pick you up to put you down

You nip again at me

Stop that

Now you're getting me mad

You tuck inbetween my feet when I walk

I kick you lightly with my foot by mistake

Don't look at me

It was your fault

You know better

I couldn't see you

Especially when I'm carrying towels

You want to play

I get out your favorite toy

Within seconds you are bored

Then you want to go in the back room

I open the door that was shut because the air conditioners on

Why cool a room where not in

You walk in and walk out

That's the fastest turn about

Your just finicky I guess

I put down more food

You sniffed at it and raised your chest

I even gave you a few cat treats

You ate them

No more their ownly a treat

You climb back up in your favorite chair

I pat you again

You give me dirty looks

You can't make up your mind

You are definitely a girl

I'm not sure what else I can do

Accept say I love you

      Much truth in this! So many cats behave in similar fashion, yet they all have their own little personality quirks.

      Aw this was delightful and sweet. My poor cat Sid is suffering in the hot weather but he doesn't want to be inside he stays out in the garden. Eats a lot less than usual but still has some moments when he wants to get a little love. He sends her an understanding meow.

      This almost sounds like my grandma's cat, except hers is a boy. You try to pet him on the belly and he takes a swing at you. LOL! This poem pretty much says it all! Voted it up!
