Cats - Poem by David Darbyshire

Black cats, blue cats
white cats, grey cats
Round and thin, stray cats
Tall and short, they come in all sorts

Pet cats, Wild Cats
Abyssinian and Brown Cats
Bengal or Bobcats
Copper and Curly Cats

Nice cats, bad cats
good cats, Piss cats
Dakota Rex, Don Sphynx
Dragon Li, Desert Lynx

Furry Cats, Bald Cats
Kittens and Small cats
There is always a fat cat
Mei Toi or Mooncat

Ussuri or Urals rex
Vanese to Victoria Rex
Tibetan, Tulips or Toy
Cats are such a joy

    I so like my cats roasted,
    & laid on bread (toasted) ,
    or basted and broiled,
    but never, ...never boiled! !

    i left comments 6 years ago. now i'll borrow this for the cat lovers to read in my April showcase of poems (mostly) by P H poets. any questions, please ask.

    i'm not much of a cat person but my female cousin prefers cats over me. (we tried sharing an apartment once and she decided to give me the boot and keep the cats. well!) So i will try emailing this to her in new york state. i do like the poem, and i don't dislike cats! (Report)Reply

    David, I just finished reading the last line of this poem when my feline Babygirl rings the bells on the door for me to let her out...I'm going to give her a key! ! ! ~

    Yes, I enjoyed this!
