Cats Toys

Cats toys are simple things
paper ball or a piece of string,
he draft excluders that look like snakes
Some imagination is all it takes.

That cushion that moved
h, it must be killed if not disproved,
arn that hangs from crochet hooks
Soap bubbles and pages turned in books.

A spider running across the floor
eflections on the wall or door
Everything within reach of a paw.

Shoe laces that really should be untied
maginary mice that are often spied
aking puss cats really wide eyed,
aper bags and cardboard boxes
et cats invent their own Fort Knoxes
Each safe to dream of chasing foxes.

To pounce and chase is such great fun
appiness is in a madcap run
n climbing trees and snoozing in the sun,
ecklaces dangled, their paws to tease
iving chase to leaves blown in the breeze
Such simple things a cat will please.

Beautiful poem to our humorous and inquisitive and loving feline friends, Jackie.

Like Dani's cat, my five simply became ecstatic when I happened to leave an empty cardboard box lying on the floor. Each of them couldn't wait to explore it. Now, I have empty boxes scattered about all over the place. Drives Rebecca mad!!!!

Great acrositc! If a person ever forgets what it is like to be a child......just watch a cat in paly. Great write!

Ah yes! The world through cats' eyes! I've always been amused at the expense we "keepers of the feline" go to buying toys for our furry friends when in reality, a piece of string, or plastic thimble, or wad of paper satisfies them just as much. This is one of the best Acrostics I've seen Jackie and of course I LOVE the subject matter. Well done my usual!
