Stuck

  What do I do?  I'm not sure. I must sit here like stone. What if someone comes to the door? Or calls me on the phone? I'm hungry but I cannot eat. I cannot reach the snacks. I feel like I'm glued to this seat, But oh!  My aching back! At once, without warning, I found I couldn't move. Stuck like this all morning, My position won't improve. I wish I had a book to read, Something to pass the day. What about my own needs? Don't I get a say? Now it is well past noon. I must get my work completed. I have a meeting very soon, But I'm stuck where I am seated. My leg's asleep down to the bone. I'd love a little nap. But your time is not your own When your Cat sleeps on your lap.

Recess-A Cat Playbook Mini

  Feeling rather bored, Young Cat yawned and sat, While a little ball He half-heartedly did bat. Old Cat had looked over, Thought, "This is not the way A young cat such as him, Should amuse himself and play." Old Cat approached Young Cat And asked what he was doing. "I feel so very bored! This feels like my undoing!" Young Cat was so dramatic, Old Cat just rolled his eyes. "Oh stop and listen to me- For I am old and wise." "Cats are pros at playing- How have you never learned? After my master class, Boredom won't be a concern!" Young Cat followed Old Cat To a large space in the den, Where Old Cat had a white board And some brightly colored pens. Old Cat started off- "Play is not just play- It is a complex means To teach the young our ways. They seem silly, do they not? The stuffed rabbit and toy mouse? The way we stalk them close And bat them all around the house?" "It's how you learn to hunt! To stalk them as your prey! Le

The Cat Playbook IV-Building A Better Mousetrap

Old Cat was relaxing, Young Cat by his side. When suddenly a big Mouse scurried on by. "What was that I just saw?" Old Cat had cried. Young Cat just sat there, mouth agape and  eyes wide. "A Mouse?" said Young Cat with disbelief, "Although the moment I saw was very brief. Whatever it was, it ran very fast, And before I could think, it already had passed." Old Cat yelled, "A Mouse!  Our house is afflicted! Without a doubt, he must be evicted! It's up to us, our responsibility- A job that we've handled throughout history!" "We must get this done, not a minute to waste! Come with me now, we can't be disgraced. Everyone will know," Old Cat had frowned, "That's how fast word of Mouse gets around!" Old Cat got up, with Young Cat behind, Devoted to the task he was newly assigned. At the basement door, Young Cat looked with awe, As Old Cat, to a scanner, raised his right paw. "This is my lab, the scanner keeps oth

King-A Cat Playbook Mini

Don't come at me! Can you not see? I'm the toughest around! You think you're strong? You'll see you're wrong! I'll swat you right to the ground! I can see out so far! And touch all the stars! I'm hundred of stories high! You can't get me down, Or out of your town! No matter how many planes you do fly! I'm the strongest ape! Just look at my shape! You have no control over me! Try as you might, You can't match my fight! It's hopeless, soon you will see! Old Cat and Dog stared As Young Cat, teeth bared, Hung off of his tallest cat post. Swatting at flies, With intense, glaring eyes, In his daydream completely engrossed. "Cats are so weird," Dog simply sneered. Old Cat just shook his old head. "Don't say 'all cats'- We're not all like that. Young Cat's simply, um, spirited." "What can he be thinking?" Dog asked, staring, blinking At Young Cat, with his limbs all askew. Giving shoulders a shrug And

Evolution

Evolution's quite a thing- Amazed, it makes me gape. But do you ever stop and think, What if we had not come from Apes? If we were close to Snakes, Would we slither all around? Would we have built our buildings A little closer to the ground? Or from the Birds, who fly with ease, We'd evolved our shape and form? Would sharp beaks instead of mouths And bright feathers be our norm? Dogs, they say, are man's best friend. But if they were ancestors long ago, Instead of shaking hands Would we sniff butts to say hello? Our better yet, our Feline pets? Stuck up jerks, Cats we do label. But what if we came from them , Would we  knock objects off the tables? Lizards, another branch- How'd that evolution flow? Changing colors like Chameleons, Is how emotions we would show? Or from Fireflies, would we glow? Or if Wasps, sting enemies? Would we spin webs like Spiders do Or make honey like the Bees? Could we sho

The Cat Playbook III-Defending Your Turf

Old Cat and Young Cat, Mentor and Mentee, Old Cat proud Young Cat earned his cat degree. He looked after Young Cat as if he were his own Inside the house that now felt like a home. Things had settled well and they fell into a groove. The way they got along, any Pet Dad would approve. They were very happy, their lives felt so ideal, Everything fell into place, contentment they did feel. One day Pet Dad came home and things felt very strange. Though they did not know just yet, things were gonna change. Extra bowls came out of bins. And why toy bones abound? Curiouser things became, and then they heard the sound. A sharp arf here, and then a yelp-was that a bark as well? Young Cat was quite unsure, but Old Cat knew the tell. "This couldn't be, I don't believe Pet Dad would have agreed To add this yipping, noisy thing to our perfect family!" Old Cat, full of disbelief, quite frankly felt insulted Pet Dad would make this
