And he'll say, as he scratches himself with his claws,
"Well, the Theatre's certainly not what it was.
These modern productions are all very well,
But there's nothing to equal, from what I hear tell,
That moment of mystery
When I made history
As Firefrorefiddle, the Fiend of the Fell.

Gus the Theatre Cat ~T.S.Elliot

No cat of mine’s confuddled by cartoons,

in fact, purr-furs, when they're playing, not to snooze,

and flips from Ratatouille to raccoons

as nimbly as your kiddies take their cues.

Sphinx-like, my rascal eyes the screen a smile,

but stays his ambush of bite-size wildebeest,

being wise to having once tried that dial

and smacked a lunch wouldn't yield in the least.

He’s wise to the ways of living indoors,

adapting to having been out before,

with wedding both worlds to these scenes on all fours,

or feathers, or sketch—yet never fool for :

To watch him watch is to know which is which—

Only God’s creatures will make his tail twitch.

A lovely Poem Hekga!

Yes, only God's creatures will make the cat's tail twitch.
From an experienced pet lover of cats.
