One for cat lovers, or maybe for the cats themselves -- I feel their pain!

One for the cat lover, I'm sure. Rather effective, and close-on to the actual thing. (See, you CAN use spacing to effect!) I think I liked your first line, and "runningdownbumps," with also the last 4 lines best of all. Very cat-minded realistic.
Like it or not, however, poems do crave some sort of title... opposed to phrases. Or did you just omit entering them, because you do list them at the top?
