If people are cats,
then this explains,
why I hate to get wet
whenever it rains.

This is the reason
I sleep all day
emerging at night,
ready to play.

I like to eat often,
and lay in the sun,
or curled in a chair
(your favorite one!)

I pounce and attack,
whenever your near,
nuzzle your neck
and purr in your ear.

Cool and aloof,
Iím not without flaws
but rub me wrong, and
Iíll show you my claws!

If people are cats,
then itís easy to see,
how the flick of your tail,
attracted me.

Lightening fast,
sleek and agile,
you tamed me with
your elegant style,

You are my Tom,
Iím your cool cat
with eight lives left,
letís get happy and fat!

Debbie....

This is delightful. I am sending it to my sister, who loves cats more than anyone I know and would love to believe there is a little Kitty in all of us. =O)

raleighbttrfly and bestgirl,
I'm glad you liked it!
This poem was in response to Kaile's challenge.  It made me wonder if I had a little "cat woman" in me too!

Best, I hope your sister likes it!

I liked this one a lot! Keep up the good work!

Life has got to chnage,
Nothing stays the same,
Soon it will be time,
For me to move on.

What a delightful read, Debbie!  I was trying to figure out how to answer this challenge, and here you've done it magnificently!

LOL, thanks for bringing these cat threads back kaile, I hadn't read them before!
I don't recognize half of these poet names perhaps they mostly purred in forums I didn't meow in often?I really enjoyed this one.
