The internet is overflowing with love for dogs (and for the record, I do like dogs, as well) and disdain for cats, so in honor of #NationalCatDay, I wrote this inspired prose about my little fur babies.
First up, Rainey, the stray who showed up at our house on a rainy day, banged up, skinny, and covered in sticky, wet leaves.
Black, orange, and white are you,
Sweet and loyal, through and through.
Always there to give a snuggle,
Whenever my mood shows signs of trouble.
Soothing fears with your soft, luscious purr,
Cares fade away when stroking your fur.
You and I have a quiet understanding,
You’re always giving and never demanding.
Quiet companions through thick and thin,
I’ll treasure you always, my feline friend.
|Rainey, the cat with a Heart of Gold|
And then there's the other one, Mittens the Scoundrel, who loves us in the most disgruntled way possible.
Orange and white with lots of fluff,
You’re sweet as pie ‘til you’ve had enough.
Always wanting love and attention,
Baring your claws when it turns to imposition.
Ever keeping us on our toes,
With overturned water cups and other woes.
Lovable in spite of your naughty ways,
Your spark sheds light on the darkest of days.
We may not always see eye to eye,
But I’ll love you ‘til the day you die.
|Wait, isn't every day National Cat Day?|
Give your furry friends an extra squeeze today and every day!
