Sundays with Simon and Sammie: A Very Naughty Cat

Hi folks. This is Simon. Sammie was a naughty kitten this week so I thought I would show you. And this seemed the perfect poem to go with it.  Now you can see what I have to put up with.  But, to be honest, I did a few naughty things when I was little, too.

A Very Naughty Cat
I have four white paws
A ginger splash across my nose
and a long stripy tiger-like coat
I have long clean whiskers too!
and an ah-maayyy-ziinng tail.I believe grooming is crucial and requires serious attention!
I must remember to do behind my ears
and under my legs, and my tummy too!
Generally humans enjoy good cleaning
but they do not appreciate it in public
I wonder why???

I eat only when I’m hungry
and love to play with my food
and swipe at the dog who tries to sneak a biscuit or two.
If I see no food, I’ll pester you…

I ruin the nice afghan rugs
to keep my nails nice and trim
and receive a scolding, but then a hug…
what good are they anyway? I meow.

If I’m not the centre of attention
I rip down the curtains and knock over vases
I try to help with the crossword by shredding it.
and OH, I love tearing up my dear pal’s work documents.

I love to explore the gardens and under the house.
I love to climb on top of shelves and tables
I chase butterflies and follow shadows
I flirt and play with the mice.

I’m always itching for a scratch or a game or two
I set my own hours, whether it be night or day.
At nights, I’m always naughty and cause mayhem
“Come out little Children!! Wake up and play!!”  I meow

I leap onto the piano and prance across the the ivory keys

“What FUN!!!!    I know you looooove me…”  I prruuuurrrrrrr
