|Misty mesmerized by something on the computer|
A cat knows how to always keep clean,
And how to avoid dogs that seem mean.
She will purr steadily when she is happy.
Unwanted advances will make her snappy.
She'll sit in the window and take in fresh air.
Or cuddle up so cute in a lady's soft chair.
It is true that I am a fan of a golden pooch,
But sometimes my cat and I will smooch.
I have cats because of my dear wife,
But they give to me too a better life.
It's been said that cats have nine lives,
And I hope that mine smiles and thrives.
