MY CAT LADY

LADY TAKING A BREAK
LADY TAKING A BREAK

I thought since it is National Cat’s Day I would write a poem about my cat, Lady.  She is quite the character, with a mind of her own and set in her ways, not unlike myself!  So I am going to write a poem which hopefully does her justice.

LADY

There once was a cat name of Lady

She loved lying in the sun

But not where it was shady.

Cleaning her plate, she’d find her spot

Which was of course most comfy

Under her blanket right on the dot.

Snoozing away ’till the clock struck two

Up she’d pop, for her next meal

Lapped it up, ’till next one was due.

A Christmas Poem

Lattes and cookies and kitties with whiskers

Shopping for new clothes all a twitter

When the snow falls, when the cats meow

Brings a smile to my face somehow

When the wind blows and the rain falls

I  find myself shopping at malls.

 

Cheeks are red and noses like cherries

Sweets are abundant, including the berries

The bears and cubs are now hibernating

As the world is slowly vibrating

Christmas season has passed and then

Another year will begin again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

These are a few of my favorite things…….

Day 2 of Writing 101:  Make a list of things you like. Or write a poem about the things you like.

Lattes and cookies and kitties with whiskers

Shopping for new clothes and animal litters

When the rain falls, when the cats meow

Brings a smile to my face somehow

When the wind blows and the snow falls

I  then find myself shopping at malls.

 

The Autumn leaves in the wind blowing

Colors so vibrant, then comes the snowing

The bears and cubs are hibernating

As the world is slowly vibrating

Another season has passed and then

Another year will begin again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Merlin My Treasure, conclusion

Merlin and Lady started getting along soon after that.  Although Merlin never quite got over that Lady could sit on my lap with him and also get petted.  He had this look when he saw me petting her that said it all.  She, of course, was oblivious to his glares and would climb over him to get a better position on my lap.

On the other hand, Lady would cuddle up with Merlin when he was lying on the couch or chair and he seemed to like it.  He would groom her and even clean her ears which she loved.  And she would do the same for him.  So they became good buddies over the years.  I really loved their antics with each other.

Then a few years ago Merlin developed a Thyroid disease.  I had to put him on a special diet and take away the dental treats he loved but he got used to the diet even though I knew he wasn’t crazy about it.

He would wait outside the door when I was giving Lady her dental treats and then when she came out, he would rush in and lick the empty dish.  I really felt bad about that, but the vet said nothing except the food she recommended.  And it did help him stay healthy for a time.

When he was drinking water, Lady would come and insert herself between him and the water bowl and start drinking.  He would always sit back and let her do it.  When she was finished, he would continue drinking.

Merlin was always very nice to Lady but sometimes he would get a wild hair and chase her around the house.  Then she would give a cry and I would reprimand Merlin of course.  But I think she loved the chasing and playing even though he would get a little boisterous at times.  It was all a game to them.

We all had a great time together until recently when Merlin got very sick and was refusing to eat or drink.  After several trips to the vet, I knew he didn’t have much time left and it all happened so suddenly that it was a shock to me.  I tried to make him as comfortable as possible and I was glad I was with him when he died.  I  will always remember the good times we had together and I still have Lady to play with and spoil and to enjoy our time together, however long that may be.
