Vegas The Cat - Poem by Francis Duggan

She believes she is human Vegas the siamese cat
Likes to sit on your lap and like a dog likes a pat
Cannot say if she has ever killed a bird or a rat or a mouse
Since she has never been outside of the Inman house
Cream coloured with black legs, black tail, black ears and face and green eyes
If entered in a cat show for her beauty she would win a prize
As she is indeed quite a beauty to behold
Just beyond the prime of her life a six year old
Alex and John her human mentors treat her as family
As cats go there are few as lucky as she
Is since she lives a royal life and in truth one can say
Few cats do enjoy such an existence in the World of today
She may never have killed and eaten a bird a mouse or a rat
But she is rather privileged Vegas the cat.
