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.

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.

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.

Too Much

Has anyone told you you’re annoying?
Because I am certain that you are.
Has anyone told you to leave?
I’d love if you went far.
Has anyone told you your voice
is just too much to hear?
When you are around me,
one thing is very clear.

I’d love nothing more than to tell you
that your noise is just too much
but I’d rather just be sleeping
and dreaming of mice and such.
