Weather or Not

It’s not easy being furry
when the weather
just won’t change,
the heat won’t go away
and still my winter fur grows,
it’s strange.

Mother nature doesn’t know
what it’s like to be a cat
with a coat you can’t remove
when the temperature is hot.

Then the next day it’s so cold
and my coat is not enough.
Pass me a blanket,
this weather thing is tough.

Weather or Not

The Chair

Thanks for the chair,
I don’t have enough
in fact the one I am on
is just not up to snuff.
Give me a minute
and I’ll check it out.
Just cool your horses,
you don’t have to shout.
I don’t understand
what you’re rambling about
but I’ve decided to stay
so why do you pout?
This chair, it will do,
it’s comfortable to me.
Just bring me a blanket
and a spot of tea.

Oh, you think this is yours?
Well, we’ll just have to see
since all of this house
belongs to beautiful me.

The Chair


I was sleeping peacefully
before you came along
strumming your guitar
and singing that song.

Have you any clue
how annoying you are,
walking around the house
like a crazy pop star?

It’s not just an annoyance,
you waking me up,
but disturbing the peace
like a riled-up pup.

How will I function
on so little rest?
A cat needs 23 hours
to be at her absolute best.
