Best of Friends
by James Donovan
(Seabeck, Wa. USA)
They say a dog is man's best friend
but what about our cats?
I know my cat would disagree
if I ever told him that.
He'd say I can do many things
a dog could never do
like meow and purr when you rub my fur
or catch a mouse for you.
Friendship is a special gift
To treasure and to share
so give some to your feline friend
and let him know you care.
His friendship means a lot to you
and he shares it every day
sure, dogs can be real friendly too
but cats have a special way.
They may not wag their tails as much
but you know when they do
they're just expressing pleasure
and saying 'Thanks' to you.
But friendship is a two-way street
with a lot of give and take
so don't be always praising dogs
just give your cat a break.
Just let him know you love him so
and give him a special treat,
and let him know his friendship
no dog could ever beat.
If you are best friends with your cat
he'll never want to stray
and he will be your loving friend
forever, and a day.
