My Kitten Thinks She Is A Parrot

Updated on October 20, 2010

Two Pets Rolled Into One

I sit here trying to type a few words before I go to bed tonight

Out of the blue

I feel something jump on my back

I feel claws dig in

Then up my neck

I look and it is my favorite feline

She climbs over the top of my head

I think she thinks I am a human perch

Maybe she should have colors of bright blue and a tint of red

She could repeat words like Lovely.Sexy,And Go To Bed

I would sit there and smile

As she repeats what I think and my wife says all the time

Each day may seem boring to so many

When nothing real exciting happens and no new adventures to tell

But for me It is one of many

Days that start out like heaven and end in hell 

Each day reads like the Guiness book of records

Each of her feats is out done by another

By one funny kitten who thinks she is a parrott

She wants her head rubbed constantly

She climbs on every place she is not suppose to

She is far from shy

Then she stands almost completely still

Then she would peck if she could

Under my chin to catch my attention

There she would sit for hours on end

Until she is hungry again

Not realizing she ate just ten minutes ago

Back to the bird feeder to eat

She is always in the middle of mischeif and trouble

I know she has fur instead of feathers

Constantly licking it making sure shes clean

If you open any door she will be inside it before you know what has happened

Climbing way in back to disappear from sight

Up on a window sill before long

Trying to climb the walls to the ceiling

Soon up on the highest point in any room

Which would be the flat screen t.v. set

Trying to balance herself on one leg forgetting she has another

Above the kitchen cabnets

On any counter she sees fit

Won't listen to a word we tell her

Not understanding that she is no light weight

When things begin to fall

She high tails it out of there

Before the real damage has set in

She again sits looking at me

Like I am your favorite parrot or kitten I will let you choose

What could I possibly do

That you haven't seen already

I have chewed every wire

I can climb in the middle of any light

Only to see the inside I have never seen

Go after any chain or dangling string

I will begin to chew

If you only knew

How many things I have broken

That alone should of given me enough

To my claim to fame

If you only gave me a perch

Instead of cat bed

My body could circle underneath and poke my head out each time

Balancing myself until I fall

Not to worry I am quite the acrobat

I can find any window without directions and a map

I will go nose to nose with you in seconds

I will go anywhere I can not be reached

If there is a place that you don't want me to be

Then you better watch me close

Better yet hold me tight

Because in the next moment I am taking flight

      Purrrfectly done. I smiled throughout the entire piece. This contains great images of the mischief and mayhem created by an adorable sounding species confused kitty. Thank you.

      This was fun.

      We have both a cat AND a parrot, plus 4 dogs, a rabbit, and a horse out back.

      Jasper, our cat, has appropriated me as his best buddy, so I can stroke him everywhere he likes it, and cradle him in my left arm while I try to type with my other hand.

      He's a pretty boy, about a year old, and a very good hunter, bringing us mice to scoop out of the driveway nearly every day. Better he eliminates them than they nest in the walls and chew the electrical wires.

      Good luck with your feline friend. If you get her to talk let me know...we're still working on the parrot!
