The Contrary Cat by Joan Riordan #RAOKblitz

The Contrary Cat
By Joan Riordan

Won’t capture mice
Thinks that they’re nice

Won’t climb a tree
Watches T.V.

No laps- instead
Perches on heads

Likes to get wet
And visit the vet

Allergic to yarn
Stays away from the barn

Chews on big sticks
Learns funny new tricks

Greets me each day
When I’ve been away

At times, I suppose
He’s a dog in cat clothes

The only thing
That’s as it should be?

I like him

                 and he likes me.


  1. Ahahaha! Kind of sounds like my cat. He's very dog-like. (But don't tell him I said so. *grin*)

    1. Mums the word - Thanks for the comment


You know you have something to say...
