TIPPIE CAT’S NEW ACT

TIPPIE CAT’S NEW ACT

The “Green-eyed Monster Cat”

Has found himself a new act…

‘Tween shoulder and chair

Belly hanging there,

Requires balancing tact.

From the back of my wife’s recliner,

He thinks that nothing is finer…

Then to reach across

Thin air to emboss

His claws into his minder.

Yes, Tippie wants to be held,

Even if the “punctured” has yelled….

He needs reassurance

Of love’s endurance,

Until uncertainty is quelled.

Toward the computer seat behind her  chair,

Is where Tippie hangs in mid-air…

Begging to be taken

And not forsaken,

And cuddled so he knows that we care!
