“Animals are reliable, many full of love,

True in their affections, generous in their actions,

Grateful and loyal.

Difficult standards for people to live up to.”

 

Alfred A. Montapert

 

Music: Alley Cat

 

All of our many animals continue to amaze me

With the bonds of friendship, which they form

They care not at all, about another’s differences

They prove to me, true friendship has no ‘norm’

 

From the day our Chihuahua pups were born

One of our cats, Jesse James, befriended them

These days, the four of them are always together

With an unwavering friendship, which has no end

 

They follow good old Jesse, all around the house

He so merrily leads them on many a frenzied chase

Lately, he has shown them how to pry open treat jars

The antics of these four always bring a smile to my face

 

When I cannot find one of my shoes, or my house keys

I know Jesse and his gang, have hidden them somewhere

When I hear a kitchen cabinet being rummaged from inside

I now know old Jesse and his mischievous posse are in there

 

Their latest ‘fun-time activity’ has Jesse prying open my wife’s dresser

He then delights, in tossing her underwear, down to his waiting friends

The three pups excitedly grab what he tosses, and race under our bed

When my spouse discovers her pilfered drawer, I chuckle without end

 

And when they tire, after a morning of chasing, cavorting, and hiding

We soon find these three tiny dogs snuggled up in a box, with old Jesse

His purrs are like lullabies, very gently drifting these puppies off to sleep

The nurturing nature of this cat toward his canines, so very wondrous to see

 

Outlaw Jesse James was once a homeless alley cat,

The pups’ pregnant mother, abandoned in an alley;

The deep bonds of friendship among our animals,

Always still amazes, and brings great joy to me.

Ed,

That is so adorable and heartwarming! I have no canines but many many felines that do the same thing! Or similar, like the one now who loves this screen and I can't see much but a black cat! God Bless, you Ed for doing so much for homeless animals.

enjoyed the read! Jesse and my Midway, found halfway to Tulsa years ago, sound like kindred spirits, whenever we have a new pup or kittens to the crowd, Midway is right there, taking care of, protecting, etc. Little Maggie May, now the size of a shetland pony still loves her Daddy cat.

I doubt they'd get into your drawers, as all they'd find are stinky undies & even worse very stinky socks...better to play in moms drawers for sure...Jurseeeeeeeeeeeey

Ed, Love this one. It’s a really neat story, but I have to agree with John concerning the mischief they seem to enjoy. I don't think my sweetie would be enthralled with them getting into her drawers.

I'm just sayin..... Dick

Ed,
Your tolerance for all these shenanigans
is admirable but then, what is there not to love?
Yours is a happy home and Jesse and 'the troupe'
are a true joy.
