Napping Alone

The sun seeps through
and reaches my throne
so I stretch a little farther,
excited to be alone.
A let out a yawn
and crack my eyes
and twitch my whiskers
and continue with sighs.
A nap is always best
with lots of warmth and sun
and is even better
when I’m the only one.

Just When

Just when I figure it all out,
you go and change it once more;
don’t you know I’m a cat
and change is something
we deplore?

Just when I’ve settled
and got ready for a nap,
you tear apart my world
leaving chaos & destruction
leaking from the tap.

Just when I don’t think I could
hate you any more,
you prove that hatred
is quite lenient compared
to what I have in store.

Dream Job

To say I would do anything
is an understatement.
I would do everything
and all the unthinkable things
in between.
Loving you
is my only job
and the pay
is greater than
any dollar amount.
But the truth is,
I would work for free
as long as it meant
you’d be next to me.

Groomed

How could you think it was okay
to use that weapon
and take my fur away?
A jumbled mess it may have been
but I approve all grooming
right down to where and when.
Just try that move once more
and then you best prepare
for what you’ll have in store.

My Interests

Somehow you think
you have my best interests in mind
but you are either stupid
or tragically blind.
How could you think
that I would be glad?
You woke me from my nap
and now I’m just mad.
No I didn’t need a kiss
and sure as hell no hug,
I was just fine right here
on my favorite rug.
Next time you think
it’s such a swell plan,
remember this well,
I am not a fan.

#tbt

I’ve always wanted to be a cat lady
and live my life in peace
with just a few cats
who do exactly as they please.
I’d wake up every day
just at the crack of dawn
and feed the hungry clan
and pretend that nothing’s wrong.
They’d love me as I am
and hate me just the same
but I’d never have to wonder
like I would with some dame.

Emergency

Look how wide my eyes have grown
and how frantic I’ve become;
there’s a maniac outside
and something must be done.

The world may be ending
it’s true the end is nigh
and still you just sit there
while I let out a cry.

Don’t tell me it’s alright
and that this person is fine
when she’s mowing the lawn
while I attempt to dine.

So nonchalant you are,
but very soon you’ll see
just how serious this is
and come and hide with me.
