cute love, love,
by Maureen Mcgreavy |
If a cat
caught my tongue
it must have been after that
in my throat
that was after those
in my stomach
Was it vertigo
or did the earth move
I don't know
are all that I need

What a strange one, my PC,
orange, gray and white.
Only time she sits on me
I'm downstairs at night.
That's when she's my laptop. I
like her, soft and fat,
snuggled on me, for she's my
personal (lap) cat!
(This is example of 7/5 trochee and best I could do for discussing a computer. haha!!)

birth, child, death, emotions, feelings, heartbreak, hurt, in memoriam, sad,
there's a little dog that's laughing
at a cow jumping the moon
and a cat playing a fiddle
on the wall of a bright room
where a mobile's hanging silent
waiting patiently to turn
like the pages on the bookshelf
that proclaim it's fun to learn
and there's a bible on a small crib
with its cross depicting love
for a child born sadly sleeping
into arms of those above.

appreciation, cat, peace,
So soft and colorful,
I simply stare at you,
Love in totality, wordless
Blinks flashing your,
You never correct me.
You just accept me, kind
Your snoring in my ear,
Erases all my fears,
Walking with sweetness,
On God’s earth,
by Andrea Dietrich |
The time is after midnight, and I’m in the moment,
thinking how another Christmas has come and gone.
My spouse and I are tucked in bed, warm and cozy.
Outside, white beauty coldly blankets our front lawn.
Snickers, our new dog, sleeps peacefully between us.
The cat creeps up beside me now. How I love her!
How trusting are these creatures God gives us - how pure!
Our cat lies down by Snickers. I hear her soothing purr.
The visit with our daughter and her family was nice.
With gifts, glad hearts and tummies full, we traveled home.
More memories to cherish; the old year passes.
In the moment - grateful - I finish with this poem.
by Jan Allison |
Poshpaws was our beloved pussy cat
She would clean her fur when sat on the mat
Loved to be stroked, we could tickle her tum
Her purr was loud like the noise from a drum
Large emerald eyes would sparkle and gleam
Her coat so soft with a beautiful sheen
She would lie in the sun from dusk till dawn
Rouse from her dreams with a pussycat yawn
Dad did not like cats - that’s what he would say
But on his lap Poshpaws would always lay
She’d follow my Dad all around the house
Make no noise, be as quiet as a mouse
She slipped away from us aged only ten
Buried in a beautiful shady glen

by your own mother.
How could she
leave you to die?
You were helpless,
bedraggled and weak.
When I saw you
my heart melted…
who could resist
those huge blue eyes.
I scooped you up
and carried you home.
You cried for your mum;
but she was long gone.
I gave you warm milk
you drank thirstily;
then fell asleep
in my arms.
I begged my mum
to let you stay.
From that day
you stole my heart.
I fell in love
with my first kitten.

Contest Anacreontic Verse 1
by Donald Meikle |
animals, friendship, love, pets, love, me,
A part of what you are to me
Knowing you are free to be
apart from me
I am no longer free
to be alone from thee
so hold my heart my love my soul
for you are all that keeps me whole
Upon this sea of life and storm
I hold your love to light and warm
my every breath
on every turn with you I yearn to be
to hold you close to feel you blink
your breath upon my face
refreshes me as we embrace
and then I sink to deep contented sleep
a well fed cat
in Summer sun
whose furry dreams
have just begun
paws atingle purrs aloud
whisker flicking joy and proud
as only cats can be
by Constance La France |
jumps, plays, sleeps eats,
Meows, growls, purrs and chirps,
And I, like to kiss her soft fur;

oh lovely bed, dishevelled bed,
warm and cosy snuggle bed
too nice to get out of bed
too big for one it should be shared
crisp clean sheets, to curl the toes bed,
pack of pillows for my head.
duvet to wrap around me, bed
wish you served meals, need to be fed.
coffee and toast make it a special bed
crumbs to lie on, isn’t good it’s said
best you throw me out, get a shower,
oh bed, can I sneak back in an hour,
my bed I love you.

angel, humanity, universe,
We thought we were strong
Something happened to change that.
We simply were wrong.
Angel with magical cat
Sent us unexpected love
We were truly glad of that
Sensing they came from above
The love they brought was honest and true,
Unconditional joy, practically unheard of.
They returned to heaven, when they were due.
Inspired unity first, brought us together as one.
They had converted us, stronger and true.
Thanks to a lot of teamwork and a bit of fun,
All of us together, much stronger as one.

A pet is part of the family

They are always there for you

Or you are happy

I Do not want a window seat .
I do not want to freeze my feet..
I do not want a waiter cat .
I do not like his pin striped hat..
I do not want him to touch my food.
And how he speaks is down right Rude..
So won't you take my order Jerry.
I know the menu, and I'm in quite the hurry..
Scrapple , egg and cheese on toast,
that is the meal I love the most..
The tall cat can have his green eggs and ham.
He's not from Philly but Sam I Am..

Love bodily functions, no question bout that
Sometimes my best ones even frighten the cat
They climb up a pole
It can sure take its toll
Some end up cross eyed unable to nap

humorous, lost love, lust,
When yet another lover flees my cat sized bed
and leaves me wild and comely in the night
I wonder if it's unknown words I've read
Or is it that my eyes have taken flight?
I tempt the sin with all my female parts.
They feel I'm like a spider with a bat,
to cure ,devour,digest my ghoulish pests,
They think they should be learning on the sat.
But some who mind me feel they have been robbed.
I give them all detention,I'm a liar.
I give them generous fare and sing sheeps' songs.
I give them comfort like a hellish fire
Oh,come back ,bad boy ,don't desert me yet,
The clothes I thrashed for you are not quite set.

best friend, cat, devotion, grief, loss, love,
My Lily Cat
I miss my dear loving kitty,
You died so young, what a pitty!
I loved to stroke your softest fur,
To watch you play and hear you purr.
You gave such joy, though unaware
How your sweet spirit helped me bear
The many burdens on my mind,
You shared your loyal love so kind.
Your picture sits upon my shelf
Behind the glass, sunning yourself.
I cried for two months when you left,
Inconsolable and bereft.
My feline friend where are you now?
I pray you'll be reborn somehow.

A genuine soul
Whose pen is so bright
A master of words
Whatever his write
Always a cool cat
Cheers! To you brother
My friend...love & light
by Andrea Dietrich |
Oh, how I love
the dear three
I can’t get
Any day -
not one pet
could there be
as sweet as they.
Each day they’re here when life gets hard.
My pup so cute and small;
one cat with yellow eyes
with great pride I regard.
One cat, curled-eared and white,
is clever, I surmise.
Those three – I love them all.
They are my comfort and delight.

Deserving all deserts and worth all worths,
My love is admiration’s mirrored whole,
A shadowed shade whose forms do form rebirths,
I’m boldly uncontrolled in her control.
A burning nymph who’s in all fairness fair,
My love’s accounted without frankness frank,
To stress distress she counts my bareness bare
And burns my ardor with a rankness rank.
To hold and not be held is wealthless wealth,
To see and not be seen is sightless sight,
To cure and not be cured is healthless health,
To love and not be loved is lightless light.
A crisp and charming cat sans coyness coy,
My love’s a lifeless life and joyless joy.

animal, cat, humor, pets, poems, poetry,
Ah, sweet slumber of nip-laden dreams;
the milk of mother moon bestowed,
a blessed drink and lactose-free
to this mine humble, feline throat.
Running freely through outer space,
I touch upon thy blessed universe.
My home of emerald and lapis lace,
is where in I lay in furred repose.
Chasing neon rainbows in nebulae bright,
my dreams are filled with gold doubloons.
I’ll spend them on treats and nip-delight,
and chase away any greedy tycoons.
A feline black as obsidian night,
in a home filled with human love;
among the faeries and tree sprites,
mind flies just like the doves.

who loves you
if i don't
tell me, who's going to fix this
if we won't
don't nobody miss you
and i know don't nobody kiss you
not with lips and tongue
but heart and soul
with sweat and tears
been in my blood for years untold
incurable and uncontrolled
this thing of ours
the passion worth enduring
the painful hours
this puppy love
got dog balls
cat claws and
echoing wedding bells
pulsing through each blood cell
trust me, baby
i know the difference between heaven and hell
