My God! She wants a response and all I can give is this miserable poem.

Cat & Mouse

Just sitting around I asked the Cat how she found me
“I Googled you”, she replied.

“But I tried to hide”
“I found you thus!”

Plus I wouldn’t let her know
How delightful she looked to me
Pled for her to let me go

“No, I want you to answer me.”
“I’ve haven’t got a single word”, I said
Begged another day to figure it out.

“Don’t you remember we are part of the same?”
“Not me, I’m mousing around you see!”
Blot it out I thought.

“You runaway mouse, I’ll claw till I find your inner!”
“I have no inner left to feed you”
Cool breeze swept away.

“Why didn’t you go to the Academy Awards with me?”
“I was leaving my innards even then!”
Buzz a worm and Hollywood thrall.

“Anyway I’m back to get you!’
“Welcome, but I’m always gone.”
Trellcome, bellicose against the movie.

“You think that wordless you’ll escape?”
“Not me, I’m not, so eat as you please”
Rot enough for a Cat to feed.

“I’m bored enough to leave alone.”
“Then good, I’m safe and bones.”
Glen arises a sight to see.

“Good-bye then, little mouse!”
“You can’t just leave!”
Boo, hoo, I cry all peeved.
