Penelope’s Poems

My Round Cat

Filed under: Uncategorized — penelopephoebe @ 5:32 am

Lethargic, sinuous, that’s my cat

You see him everywhere

He likes to chat about this and that

Whilst sitting on my chair

Some say his colour is nearly brown

Others think he is grey

He never thinks to pop into town

But rather sleeps all day

At the smell of some fish in his dish

He’ll raise one sleepy eye

And his tail will give a lazy swish

He’s never very spry

He has seldom been a one for toys

He shows disdain at those

He rarely hangs out with other boys

Preferring just to pose

He is a very heavy feline

Some might say he’s too fat

Upon this subject I must incline

But I love my round cat

  10. I love the relationship you have with this little (or not so little one).
    I love the picture you paint with his disdain and lazy tail.

  11. nice tribute to your round friend. Kitties are truly their own bosses and refuse to fit into anyone else’s molds. WE should aspire to that. Nice oneshot

    • Thank you Katherine. My cat is definitely his own boss.

  12. He sounds like a fine fellow indeed. He has realized that if there are errands to be accomplished, that’s what staff (humans) are for!

  14. The cats in our lives could spur so many words. I have such a visual of you cat from your words. Right now my cat is outside my window batting at moths. Oh he is too funny. He is just a little thing but a real fatty and so lazy sometimes also. Have a great week..
