We have a monster cat,

There is no doubt about that…

In the dark we can see

His green eyes plainly,

He moves at the drop of a hat.

When I move toward the kitchen,

I know that he is just itching…

To run in a ZIP

So I almost trip,

Missing him by a smidgen.

When he wants attention—look out,

Your backside may find his claws out…

Bend over and smack,

Settles on your back

As though you’re positioned his couch.

My wife has to guard  her plate,

Avoiding what the cat ate….

Distractions allow

Her to finish her chow,

His pestering, an unfortunate trait.

His latest attitude to try,

On the back of her chair up high…

From there cats easily survey!

Our green-eyed monster cat,

Is worth all, and more than that…

We’re kept on our toes

By his little nose,

Our beloved pussy cat!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.

    Love this…we used to have a kitty that looked just like this…same white down the nose….black tuxedo kitty and incredible green eyes:) Actually our version was our Minnie Mouse’s sister and very nervous and anxious….now Minnie is more like what you describe….she is very much human and we live in her house:) She is the Queenie of my house my Minnie Mouse…She is the cat who knows where it is at:) I sing this often to Minnie and she knows it is her song…she is almost 18 years old and yet young at heart…and our kitty angel girl:)

      You are my FIRST COMMENT—other than my own! Don’t have any pictures of our Tippie Cat available—felt I had to zap out my files when one too many viruses got in the computer…got to find the photo CD again to re-install! So the picture at the bottom is a best representation Our Tippie is 17 years-old and going downhill, health-wise. Can’t afford to forestall what is incurable, so am enjoying his company day-by-day. Thanks for commenting!
