"A happy household of boy and cat / Where both of us always land on our feet"

A Boy and His Cat


Some people like to see their cats as wild

To see the lion in the housecat's eyes

But Freddie Noodles is my fellow child

A friendly lion in a handy size


Our interspecies relationship is

Mutually beneficial and his

Interest in my welfare is genuine

All the time I spend with him is time spent in

Good company my Freddie Noodles and me


Should we disagree telepathically

The problem is solved very soon and resolved

For we have evolved into the best of friends

Justifying each others means and ends


I find him to be the best housemate for me

Never a word in anger spoken

Never a promise made nor broken

A boy and his cat and that is that

Which is by any other name as sweet


A happy household of boy and cat

Where both of us always land on our feet

Don't change his litter box or don't feed him for a few days and you will see that friendly lion turn into a crazed, hissing, snarling African beast...;) Ed & Rufuz (w00f)
