Cats in Every Space

(Pets Poems – Cat Poems)

I live a very simple life
with cats in every space
But when I got to bed at night
they sleep upon my face
Now to live without the luxury
of cats in every space
Would be to live a sorry life
in a very sorry place.
I’ve never been without a cat
and this I can uphold
I’ll have a cat in every space
Until I’m gray and old.
For every fool should be aware
that cats are complex creatures
they live about in every space
And give the house its features.
Now take my house away from me
and place me in a tent
I’ll have a cat in every space
And still I’ll be content.

A Cats Life – (Cat Poems)

A Cats Life

(Pets Poems – Cat Poems)

Claws and fur collar and bell
sleeping sound then raising hell
Rearrange my neat abode
searching for the mother load.

Scratching posts and catnip mice
and other toys that seem so nice
Plants that hang and other things
rumpled rug with edge of strings.

Dancing fur-balls, rumpled mats
shredded carpets, dying plants
All are certain signs to me
that my life I’m living free.

Well, maybe not exactly free
but certainly it’s right for me
Litter pans that must cleaned
for furry ones all freshly preened.

Endless bowls that must be filled
another moth that must be killed
Rancid cans of old cat food
I love it all, I love this brood.

Funny Poems | The Family Cat

The Family Cat
(Funny Poems)

The family cat, it died the day
That everybody was away ..
When they got home, they were distraught
Because it was an after thought.

To check it, so they did not find
The furry corpse it left behind ..
Until it had been dead awhile
No rub, no purr, no cheerful smile.

Though deeply grieved, they did not sit
Instead they thought to bury it ..
The woman dug the shallow grave
The boy, one final farewell gave.

Then laid its lifeless body down
Into the damp earth, cold and brown ..
The woman, bent to cover up
The cat, encountered one hiccup.

The overlooked forgotten sin
Of rigor mortis setting in ..
And though poor puss was unaware
His stiffened tail stood in the air.

In homage to the terminal
A stark and forlorn sentinel ..
The woman cried and tried in vain
To lay the cats tail, down again.

Until so wracked with grief, and sick
She wedged it ‘neath a garden brick ..
The boy was taken by a fit
The woman first thought grief was it.

But on a closer look she found
Him laughing, writhing on the ground ..
“You horrid child, your cat has died
You shouldn’t laugh at that!” she cried.

But still he laughed, hysterical
He found her antics comical ..
The woman, still to end her task
To put the cat to rest at last.

So angry with the boy that she
Attacked to job ferociously ..
And muttered to herself the while
What horrid boy could be so vile?

How could he err so callously?
To find such mirth in tragedy? ..
But still he laughed until he cried
The woman hot and fuming tried.

To finish planting puss away
That done, she had some words to say ..
“You stop that laughing now! You hear?”
She took the poor boy by the ear.

And cracked him ‘cross his curly dome
“Just wait until your father’s home!” ..
With that, she marched him to the house
To wait for her expected spouse.

That night the household would resound
With screeches, laughter, round and round ..
The story swinging to and fro
From tales of mirth, to grief and woe.

As one another did regale
The story of the dead cats tail ..
But down the bottom of the hill
A little mound of dirt there still.

With time and wind and weathering
The garden brick’s uncovering!
Oh may we never see the day
When earth and brick erode away.

Exposing such a grievous view
Of resurrected tail anew!

Lend Me A Kitten
(Memorial Poems – Pet Loss)

I will lend you a kitten
for a while, God expressed ..
For you to love while he lives
and mourn when he’s at rest.

Maybe for twelve or fourteen years,
or maybe two or three ..
But will you, ’till I call him back
take care of him for me?

He’ll bring his charms to gladden you
and should his stay be brief ..
you’ll always have his memories
as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay
since all from earth return ..
But there are lessons taught below
I want this kitten to learn.

I’ve looked the whole world over
in search of teachers true ..
And from the folk that crowds life’s land
I have chosen you.

Now will you give him all your love
nor think the labor vain ..
Nor hate me when I come to take
my kitten home again.

My heart replied
“My Lord, Thy Will Be Done” ..
For all the joys this kitten brings
the risk of grief I’ll run.

We’ll shelter him with tenderness
we’ll love him while we may ..
And for the happiness we’ve known
forever grateful stay.

But should you call him back
much sooner than we planned ..
We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand.

If, by our love we’ve manages
your wishes to achieve ..
Then in memory of him who we loved
please help us while we grieve.

When our cherished kitten
departs this world of strife ..
Please send yet another
needing soul for us to love all his life.
