Lickin’ Whiskers

That

Cat eats

Anything

That someone drops

On the floor or leaves

On an unguarded plate

Keep an eye on your yogurt

You must eat all your mac and cheese

Before he decides your lunch is his

And it’s you that must go begging for food

Abra Cat Dabra

Their eyes fixed

Upon food dishes

As though the

Power of

Suggestion will work magic

Summon a human

Cat

Stirs at dawn

Sees empty food dish

Sleeping human must waken

Now

Dog

Rolls over

The bed is comfy

A great place to dream of food

Snores

Party Purrfect

They’re shaking in their boots

Those wide-eyed little cats

Cause Shery bought some hats

For them to wear

Now, she sees it proper

That they dress up you see

For cookies served with tea

Tablecloth pressed

You never know what’s next

With happy little girls

If they like gloves and pearls

Quick, run and hide

And Nice Dogs

Flamingoes and unicorns

And lots and lots of cats

Oh, for a world like that

Then add some

Angels, fairies, and elves

Wands and magic potions

Wild dreams, crazy notions

Sounds oh so good
