Treasure Island

Karin Holloway


A cat is a cat


A cat is a cat

A cat on the lap
Is a cat in the house
Is a cat through the flap
Carrying a mouse.

A cat on the bed
Is a cat with flea collar
Is a cat when all's said
Will cost you some dollars.

A cat in the shed
Is a cat full of fleas
Is a cat with a head
Which meows 'Please! '

A cat in your arms
Is a cat who's a dear
Is a cat who has charms
And brings one good cheer.

    you have made me see many cats across these lines. in fact, i had cats of very high value in Bahrain, eg. Shirazi cat, iranian, very expensive. i was running a creativity center in bahrain, and we had small place for birds, small animals, play ground, swimming pools and all that for children of all age. it was there i had varied breed of many creatures, including colorful birds and rare sheep. well, your cat is a cat is truly a reminder poem for me. behold!
    thank you very much.
    hope you doing well, and kindly acknowledge when relieved. God Bless. (Report) Reply
