Sundays with Simon and Sammy: The Lesson

Cat and Mouse

This is what cats are for… by Nicolas Valentin (CC BY-NC-SA 2.0)

Welcome to our first Sunday of Cat Poetry. Sammie and I will choose a different poem each Sunday to share with our readers and followers who are multitudinous but  whom we wish to be multitudinouser.

The Lesson

You may have noticed, little friends,

That cats don’t wash their faces

Before they eat, as children do

In all good Christian places.

Well, years ago, a famous cat

The pangs of hunger feeling,

Had chanced to catch a fine young mouse,

Who said, as he ceased squealing:

‘All genteel folk their faces wash

Before they think of eating.’

And, wishing to be thought well-bred,

Puss heeded his entreating.

But when she raised her paw to wash,

chance for escape affording,

The sly young mouse said his good-bye,

Without respect to wording.

A feline council met that day,

And passed,in solemn meeting,

A law forbidding any cat

To wash til after eating.

Please note that Sammie and I always wash after eating.   We are extremely well groomed felines.
