GROUCHY PUSS PURRS

GROUCHY PUSS PURRS

He grumbled into the bedroom,

He grumbled it wasn’t fair…

But then fell asleep

For hours a heap

Of quietly breathing bear!

He had his nasal mask fitted,

Unplugged and moved his machine…

Machine started whirring,

The man stopped stirring,

Asleep and not talking mean.

Woke up after sleeping hours

And didn’t know the time…

His wife said’ he did fine in bed,

For himself–he felt fine.

He liked that the bedroom was quiet,

He liked quickly falling asleep…

Complaining done

He slept until one,

And never made a peep!

HOUSE PLANT DOE-SEE-DOE

HOUSE PLANT DOE-SEE-DOE

 

Our cat is feeling better,

In daytime acting antsy…

He’s gone back to the windowsill

To see which of the plants he

Can mush or smell or tear apart,

And make a general mess…

He won’t listen to reason,

Gotta move the plants, I guess!

The shelf near the kitchen

Has proven too dark,

Too narrow, in the back room,

Was able to shift four plants into “park”

In the window of our bedroom….

Until he feels better and slips into there,

And then I don’t know what we will do

To keep our houseplants from being creamed

By a pussy cat determined to chew!
