Cat Capers

by Elaine Nightingale
(Suffolk England)

The day she lost the mouse,
There was chaos in the house.
How were we to know
She'd let the creature go?
Silly cat lost interest
And left the rest
To us!

With books we built a barricade,
What a dreadful fuss we made!
Trapping mousie in the corner,
Growling out to warn her -
As her eyes again with interest followed
The meal she'd not yet swallowed,
Poor cat!

It reminded me of the day
She'd before behaved that way.
That time I'd shut her out,
The mouse was somewhere about.
Do you think that I could find it?
No! All I could do was sit.....
And wait.

Frustrated sitting on the floor,
I decided I must open the door.
In she came,
What a game!
With her paw she tossed it skyward...
Just as I, by chance, stepped forward...
And caught it!!!

Dear miss mousie in the corner,
How we tried to warn her.
The cat was on the prowl,
Just hear her meowl!
In that cardboard box you go!
It's now past midnight, don't you know?
Time for bed!

I am now so hard of heart.
Without a doubt I shut her out!
Mistress pussy
I love you dearly
But if you decide you want a mouse,
You MUST stay right out of the house!
No cat capers!

Ha ha how funny! And it reminds me of a time Claire and I chased five mice around the kitchen in Bristol that Bear had brought in.

Well done Filey for creating such inspiration!

Loved it Elaine, good fun to read. I think you are a very clever lady to make a poem like that.

Well done Elaine, know just how you felt. Been there myself with Snoopy cat many years ago. Luckily I don't have mousie problems as my cats stay in, we only have trouble finding the play mice which get hidden all over the house! x
