Lost Cat: Reward if Found
Ever heard a kitty roar before?
It’s not pretty; I assure you.
The implication is that you’ve got yourself
a serious situation
that must be diffused.
See, if you’ve refused
to give your kitty the affection she requires—the connection she desires,
after a while you won’t like her anymore.
But kitty only roars when she’s tired of being ignored.
You could forget the milk—once or twice,
and she’ll still be nice.
She’ll still cozy up to you and purr,
eyes begging you to touch her,
rub her, love her, kiss her—if you’re into that.
I’m just saying, not everybody goes around kissing on cats.
You could be too tired or too busy to pet her,
neglect to let her
sit on your lap, maybe.
But ooh baby, you will start to hear her fuss.
Stroking and milking kitty regularly are a must.
I mean, you brought her home,
made her your very own,
hugged her, rubbed her;
you saw how she loved it, couldn’t get enough of it.
Now you always wanna leave her alone?
She’ll no longer be the sweet kitty you’ve known.
If you go to touch her, she’ll arch her back.
Nothing good about that.
She’ll scratch and hiss, cause she’s pissed.
Slowly but surely she backs away,
and then one day,
you open the door and out she goes….
Think she knows her way back home? Could be.
Meanwhile, someone will see her
and notice that she
Isn’t just some stray.
“Poor kitty, who let you get away?”
He’ll scoop her up, she’ll purr.
He’ll find some milk and give it to her.
She’ll lap it up, clean the dish,
and once she gets a taste of what she’s missed,…
She’ll curl up in a ball and fall asleep.
I’m not saying whether or not he will keep her,
But he may do just that.
I mean only a fool just throws away a perfectly good cat.
