From Tigerlet To Tiger - Poem by Jenny Kalahar

When I have grown from tigerlet
Into master of my house
I will call for nip, for bowls of tuna
And my toys will all be mouse

My whiskers will be ten inches long
They'll feel vibrations in the air
I will know when you are coming home
While you're still a mile from here

When I have grown from tigerlet
I'll roar when I wake up
'Twill shake the whole foundation
When my paws go thump and thump

My eyes will be so very keen
I will see into your heart
And know when you are sad or glad
When we're together or apart

When I am big with great, wide stripes
All up and down my fur
I'll roam the rooms of my domain
Emitting a tremendous purr

When I am grown into such a cat
As the world has scarcely seen
I'll protect my home from every beast
Big, little, and in-between

When I have grown from tigerlet
Into what I will be then
You'll have to share your mattresses
I'll be too huge for my own bed

When nights are dark in all our rooms
And gentle thunder rolls
I'll protect you till the morning shines
And give comfort to your soul

When I've grown tired of prowling
After decades long have passed
I'll curl up on your warm, soft lap
And pretend to be a tigerlet again

    Beautiful poem which will be appreciated by all cat lovers, including myself.
    I was blessed having many furry companions in this life journey.
    “When nights are dark in all our rooms
    And gentle thunder rolls
    I'll protect you till the morning shines
    And give comfort to your soul”. …. Indeed, that is the truth.
    Thank you very much for sharing it. (Report) Reply

    You had better hope,
    when tigerlet is grown,
    decades lived & tired,
    he does not sit on lap,
    'cause you then might
    be crushed & expired!

    tigers may weigh over 300 and as much as over 600 pounds! !

    Thanks! And yes - in his own mind he will be a tiger even though, technically, he'll be a housecat. - Jenny
