MEEE-OW! THESE ARE THE CATS’ PAJAMAS!!!!
Watching the movie version of Cats prompted me to look out the few pieces of doggerel (catterel?) that I’ve written to various feline companions over the years – not up to TS Eliot’s standard, but cat-lovers may enjoy them.
THE GINGER TOM
This is dedicated to Orange Roughey (O.R.) who was rescued as an aggressive stray living wild on the mountain behind our house, and after a long and tumultuous period of rehabilitation turned into a cuddly domestic pet.
The ginger tom is curled up on the bed
He dreams of catching bird and mouse and rat
He purrs when loving owners stroke his head
A life of bliss for the domestic cat
This is a sentimental poem written after Felix, a much loved black and white cat, died from an undiagnosed illness.
We loved one another for fourteen years
Remembering you now brings back my tears
