Designer Cat
(For my two Himalayans, Madeline and Eloise)
By BumbleBeeBoogie

If I designed a cat from scratch
she'd be agile enough to catch
a sniffing, twitching, shy gray mouse
hiding anywhere around the house.

My feline would be much too smart
to scale a fence with pounding heart,
only to find she can't get back
to home sweet home for her evening snack.
Hairballs my kitty would not barf
on the carpet by my hearth.
Her long hair would not cling
to chairs, clothes, and everything.

My sweet puss would not have fleas,
her poop would smell like pink Sweet Peas.
Fishy breath she would not burp
while daintily dining without a slurp.

In the evening by dimming light
my warm tabby would purr goodnight,
dreaming of acres of catnip green
and lots of crackers and fresh sweet cream.

That was great!

I rest a minute thinking of pink sweet peas.

If I designed a cat from scratch, I'd.....

well, can't think of anything I'd change right this minute.

Maybe I'd give it more lives than nine.

I adore the names Madeline and Eloise--two very exceptional little girls.

You've done it, BumbleBeeBoogie--designed the purrrfect cat in rhyme. Bravo!!

What a fabulous piece - I can just imagine that you have a precious puss just like our Alexander Charles.

Yes, it would have been nice to have created him 'by design' but he's a bitsa fluffy tabby from our neighbours over-the-fence and he seems to fit your category perfectly. We wouldn't have him any other way after 10 years.

Thanks for letting me think of him in another special way.

At this very moment, 'pink sweet peas' sounds like the thing I would like to have.... :-) Somebody used the litter box without really covering up afterwards.
