When all I do is purrrrr.....

Updated on October 16, 2010

I always take the rap for something I didn't do

I sit here on your lap and do nothing but love you

I don't ask for much a can of cat food a day

A little brushing to keep my cat fur smooth

Some dry food when my wet food is all gone

A couple of water bowls if I get thirsty

I ask for 2 waters please just incase I spill one

A cat toy would be nice

To keep me company only those lonely nights

You sometimes leave me in the afternoon

Other times you don't come home at all

I never get a phone call giving me a heads up

I just wait and wait by the door until you come in

You act like I have nothing better to do

You have a life and friends

I am by myself all hours of the day with a few stuffed animals that don't even talk

When you come home you act like I should come running

You are the one who didn't bring me with you

You walk in eating ice cream and didn't bring me one

How selfish can we get

I leave you half my cat food so we can share

All you ever do is go out and cook on the grille

You walk in with one steak rare the way I like it

I get all excited and you tell me

You know better!

Get down!

You want to keep the best piece for yourself

O.k. I admit it you deserve it

You worked all day

I can over look this one time

I don't have any sneakers and I give you hints by chewing on yours often

You get even more mad when I hop up on your favorite plant to catch your attention

Did you not know I walk around barefoot all day with only dust balls to chase

You get furious when your lamp is knocked over

All I ask for is a little light when it gets dark

I can't reach the switch and the pull chain is in impossible

You are angry when I race out the door when you come in

I have been cooped up all day why not call me a pig and stick me in a pen

At least they get fresh air and a tan

I get a window opened a crack just incase it rains

I get a breeze that comes once and awhile

I have to go from window to window to find some cool air

You yell at me when the curtains our moved

Get real there curtains are madeĀ of cloth not trimmed in gold

I race to the bathroom when you go in

You give me a box with a whole cut out

When I have to do my business I have to be real careful where I step

I cover it the best I can

You do scoop it out often

But when you stink out the bathroom you spray

So your poop smells like roses or a mountain meadow streeams

What do I get

A chin rub and critisized for the job that I do

You get to flush yours down the drain for good

I rush to the toilet and you slam the cover almost on my head

I just want you to be fair and give me little self respect

I get a bell for christmas that you put around my neck

How would you like to listen to Christmas bells ring everytime you move

What were you thinking?

When you get a headache you take a few aprins

I have to take a nap on an old pillow you were going to throw out

Instead you gave it to me as if it was a gift from Macys

I go in the bathroom to use a little toilet paper

The roll unwinds a little too far

I get scolded because you want to keep the Charmin all for yourself

I get fed scraps when you are to full to eat another bite

I wake you up early so you can find time to do things with me

All you want to do is sleep

I go to grab one of your slippers and try it on for size

You take it away and say you will put them in a safe place

Don't kid yourself their not that precious

They smell like foot odor and sweaty socks

I try to lay on your laptop since it is a little hard to reach the keys

You curse me I might break it

I think you are worried I am going to have more friends than you on Facebook

You call a dog a mans best friend

There has to be some changes around here

Lets begin with

I don't like those empty paper towel holders that roll around endlessly

They get me dizzy

Some day you might want to share a gallon of 1% milk with me

Instead of teasing me with one of those blue milk caps with the plastic ring

I don't like your early morning vacuming with the motor that runs out of control

I find the cords you have dangling so much fun

Remember I don't have a planet fitness membership to the gym like you

I have to exercise and make my own work outs

So next time your bring me in for a shot

Don't fool with me and say where going for a joy ride

I may be small but I can meow with the best of them

So when something breaks blame a ghost not your favorite kitten

Because I am yours to love over and over again

I would love a chocolate cake with candles on my next birthday

Meow meow that is the way I say I love you too

      Dream On..I love this if for no other reason than it rings true. So many people forget that the little kitty left at home, alone, is just waiting for a little love and attention. You put it so clearly in kitty language...and some of this resonates w/(guilty!!) me. But, at least I have many kittys who spend time together when I'm away. You love the kitty; it's clear...great work.
