One day I値l fly three thousand miles,
meet Martie and dear Mister Toe.
I値l pet Unprecious on the head,
switch cats with them, they値l never know.

Their Needless looks just like my cat,
but sometimes mine is mean as hell.
I値l give them Slippie, run real fast.
Don稚 let them know, please do not tell.

My cat makes me take her to eat
and never lets me out of sight.
When I知 outside she peeps through blinds
and sleeps atop my legs at night.

Be patient, Needless, soon I値l come,
then you can live beside the sea.
I値l feed you pizza, chicken wings
and you値l be comfortable with me.

I値l drink a beer and celebrate,
but something tells me it won稚 work.
I知 feeling guilt about the swap.
I love my cat, feel like a jerk.

But still, it might be worth a try.
If not, then I can switch them back.
After nightfall when it痴 quiet,
I値l put Needless in paper sack.

Dear Martie loves her animals.
I know she値l love my Slippie too.
I値l give Needless a happy home,
am sure Martie won稚 have a clue.

ROFLOL, Michael!!!  You could never get Needful in a carrier to take home....never.  She is a free spirit and hates to be confined..give her the open spaces and the bird aviery to sit beneath, not the ocean.  The only water she likes is in the fish pond.

They do look so much alike though...interesting that their people are friends.  You are too cute!

Oh please instead can you come here

come take him, and leave slippie.

Michael, I love this. It's so cute. But, most of all, I like the way all of you wonderful people are welcoming back one of your "family of friends". Marti was gone when I came here at the end of last month, but she has already introduced herself to me. She is a very sweet person and deserving of all the love you sweet people are giving her. Thanks to all for sharing your kind hearts.
Love To All,
Ethel...garysgirl

I'm glad I was able to give y'all a laugh.  Thanks dearly for your generous replies.   *hugs* to each of you!

The stars will shine when I am gone,
the earth will turn on as before,
the gulls, still race along the shore,
the morning star, still kiss the dawn

I still smile over the thought of you, just as I am smiling over this poem...
