What Is A Cat

A cat is a special gift from God
just a simple ball of fur
who will let you know he's happy
when he thanks you with his purr

Why English Is Hard To Learn

We'll begin with box; the plural is boxes;
But the plural of ox is oxen, not oxes,
One fowl is a goose, and two are called geese,
Yet the plural of moose is never called meese.

A Stray Cat

I've often wondered to myself

They say it's probably for the best, that this is their belief

A Cat's Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas
and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,

Began to quarrel, and then to fight;
One had a mouse, the other had none,
And that's the way the quarrel begun.

a purebred Siamese
but she'd prefer you call her
'Miss Mia' if you please.
