I was always taught that "I WANT" don't get! In the case of my cat Sammy Jo that doesn't apply - she said so!

The photo is of Sammy Jo as a tiny kitten, fascinated by the fire, which she had never seen before. She is still a kitten at 16 years old.


She’s as mad as a Hatter
Her eye’s spittin’ fire
As she stands here
Just screaming at me.


"I want to go OUT!
I want to go PLAY
In the garden
NOT tomorrow, TODAY!

You just sit here all day
On that wretched machine
I’m neglected, forgotten
Do you HEAR what I say.

I want YOU to come too
Give ME some of your TIME!
Pay attention to ME,
FORGET about rhyme.

I want to go play,
It’s a nice sunny day
And if you don’t come too
I WILL phone the RSPCA!

I’ll tell them you neglect me
How you treat me so mean,
That you love your computer
Much more than you love ME!

If you don’t come out NOW
I might run AWAY,
And you won’t see me
Till the END of today!

Come play in the grass,
I’ll roly-poly for YOU!
Just for YOUR enjoyment
(and mine too!!)

You can make me a necklace
Of a pretty daisy chain,
And I promise to wear it
Until I lose it AGAIN!!"

Another wonderful look into the world of our cats.....Sammy Jo is a lucky lady indeed and I know you and Jim feel lucky to her her and your other "furry kids" in your world!

Heeheehee! I can relate to this one. My cat even sits up on beside my keyboard to get my attention. I had to pull a chair over to let him sit beside me when I'm at this computer. They are soooo dominating!...Hahaha!
