Kitty Antics

A familiar scene to all cat owners!

Kitty Antics

He comes in from the sleet
and rain and stands
while I towel dry him

And when he’s had enough of that
he lets me know,
his claws hungering for scratch.

Then he throws himself
on kitchen tiles. Fridge magnet
sprawl in front of target.

I shake nuggets into his bowl,
but he’s holding out
for something better.

I stroke his chin and tell him
what a fine fellow he is!
He purrs up at this

But when I walk away he knows
The game’s up. And from the other room
I hear the sound of feline crunch.
