I’m not lazy.
I’m a cat.
Don’t care one bit
What you think of that.
Be kind to me
Your lap is mine
My love can be
the special kind.
I won’t scratch
If you don’t tease
Don’t offer milk
If you please.
If you have never
owned just one
Who waits for you
’til day is done
And sun themselves
and washes too
and chooses YOU.
You are missing
a friendship dear
the likes of which
become so clear
A house is warmed
So many ways
To have a cat
Makes cozy days.
I know something
you could do
Double up the joy

Laziness.. aahhh.. hardly a sin… Love yr profile pic/avatar by the way. Very cute. Might ave liked a line-break or two in there for pause/intonation/emphasis/cadence etc but no biggie. Enjoyed this.

Your poem really captures the personality of a cat. Thanks for sharing it. I love it.

Thank-you friend. It was fun to write also 🙂
I think we could learn a lot from cats, and animals in general, on how to really live – loved it!
I concur !
I love my cat and your poem too 🙂

Cat and frog is fantastic blog.

So gorgeous, made me want my sweet old cat, who is long gone. Bravo! 🙂
The photo is of our Cody Cat. We lost him a few years ago (age 14). Many kids cried with us.
So fun! And what a lovely cat! We have two and wouldn’t have it any other way. Perfect poem of a cat 🙂
Hope you had a wonderful birthday 🙂
I’m more of a dog person but this has inspired me to maybe get myself a cat too.
Peace to you,

Oh I hope so! Cats can make wonderful companions as long as you do not expect them to be dogs:-) (I’m a dog person too!)
Very cute poem.
I enjoyed your poem. I have a cat, Miss Molly, and your poem could be about her. I like poems I can understand. Lovely.
