My Pet Cat
Author: Barbara Goodhew


Some think cats aren't very smart.
Because the tricks they don't take part.

Dogs are expected to beg for food.
And do other tricks before being told good.

Cats aren't expected to do anything,
Except lay around and be a plaything.

Now you tell me who are the smart ones.

------- Author's Notes -------

My cat lets me know when he's hungry, when I should clean the kitty litter. A cat trains the owner. A dog the owner trains him.

Hands down, cats win the contest!

They take care of themselves and have so much personality, and are so sweet and loving. I have 6 with more babies on the way!! They sleep with me, they wait for me when I'm taking a shower, they love it when I'm at home and let me know how unhappy they are when I'm not. I love my cats. Oh, my God. I have turned into my mother!
