Cats & Kittens Of Childhood - Poem by Kevin Rottweiler

growing up with 30 cats
purring tails and
feline grins
tongues like sandpaper
toying with tuna cans
sipping cream
nobody knew about catnip
more about fish and clams
sardines and metal cans
banging with a spoon
on the salty meat
cats came a runnin'
with exuberant feet
chasing mice and
running wild
a life of bookcase cats
so mild
intellectual ones
reading the books
and newspapers
like elderly gentlemen
and lady cats
with umbrellas
only to find
sardine cans
and fish bones
near litter boxes
and cat toys
and be careful
of little kittens
running up and down
pant legs
