My Cat

My Cat

A Poem by Sally Edwards

Just a fun poem


 I love my cat

See where she's sat

She loves the mat

She's big & fat

Sat by her dish

See her wish

She loves fish

And empties the dish

She hears them sing

Her bell goes ding

They see her cling

the birds don't sing

She climbs the tree

It's half past three

It's time for tea

She gets free

She stretches and yawns

curls up in a ball

Goodnight all.

Catz rule! That is such an adorable picture. It almost does not look real with the angle of the head, but I suspect that it is no fraud! Cats are just cool like that.

What did dogs ever do for us besides slobber on us?

Great write!

Cats! Big fan out here. I adore your poem, just like I adore cats. I know where my cats sit by the fur they leave on all my things! It was such a good portrayal of kitties if I do say so myself!

seems so cat like, almost as though the little puss puss sat and wrote this before deciding to pursue some other goal like chasing his tail or something!

This is adorable and its simplicty really reflects the simple, lazy life of a cat. I do think, though, that the second to last stanza is the weakest and is a bit tangential to the poem's subject matter, so you might want to consider editing or even cutting it out. This definitely reminds me of my two little kittens (cat now, but they'll always be kittens to me!) at home - the lucky kitties sleeping in the sunlight while I slave over my ethics homework. Sometimes I wish we could trade places for a couple days!

A great way to start off a Monday morning, reading this poem. With its humourous and free flowing verse. Although not a cat person, myself, cats love me. Can't explain why. Hoping your Muse is reward for his/her patience in writing this poem. Say a fresh slice of tuna or trout for dinner. Thank you for sharing this fun poem with us.

This is sweet! I love the rhyme. It flows so well. I could picture a cat as I read this. Very good!!!
