our life with cats

cats for life and our life with cats
they’ve come to us in many hats
each different and yet just the same
personalities in all but name
from moggies to fine Tonkinese
they’ve loved us but done as they please
demanding food at dead of night
or shouting ’bout some fall or fight
amused us with their funny ways
their antics made us laugh for days
they’ve brought us gifts that weren’t quite nice
like lizards legs or headless mice
they’ve talked to us in their cat speak
had endless fun with hide and seek
they’ve rubbed and purred to show they care
clawed at the rugs and scratched the chair
curled up on laps with eyes of love
just daring us to make a move
we’ve loved them ’til their day was done
and miss them each and every one
