Life with Cats

cats for life and our life with cats
- they've come to us in many hats
each different yet just the same
personalities in all but name

from moggies to fine Tonkinese
they've loved us but done as they please
demanding food at dead of night
or shouting 'bout some fall or fight

amusing us with funny ways
their antics make us laugh for days
they've brought us gifts that weren't quite nice
like lizards legs or headless mice

they've talked to us in their cat speak
had endless fun with hide and seek
they've rubbed and purred to show they care
clawed at the rugs and scratched the chair

curled up on laps with eyes of love
not wanting us to make a move
we've loved them 'til their day was done
and miss them each and every one
