Inspired by Regis’ poem “The Time of the Cats”
Photo of my kittys Jackson and Sidekick


Cats are all that
Sassy and fat
Living their days as they please
Sunning and sleeping
Yawning and creeping
Napping in summer’s sweet breeze
Chasing some birds
Not hearing my words
Insisting they need to be fed
An invisible toy
Seems to bring so much joy
As does leaving their fur on my bed
Digging in plants
Playing with ants
Scaling the yard’s highest wall
As they purr with content
Their whole day is spent
Doing absolutely no work at all
We expect nothing more
A cat has no chore
They are free to dream life away
We pamper and pet
But we never forget
It is homage to them we must pay
At the end of this life
I won’t have to think twice
I intend to come back as a cat
No more daily grind
A servant who's kind
I’ll be the Queen, quite happy and fat

excellent poem, and a perfect desciption of every cat I ever had
Reviewed by Abdi-Noor Mohamed (Eagle Of Hope) 10/28/2011
Beautiful poem, very inspirational indeed but, Sherry do not wish to come back like any other cat as you would otherwise have to fend for your life in a tough war situation if you happen to be a Somali cat!. Smile.

I loved this poem, made me smile and captures cats so well, i have an 18 year old cat, she is very sweet and gentle but the vet thinks she is getting demntia as she is meowing at me rather a lot for no particular reason. God bless. Baz

Delightful write, Sherry.
Yes, cats have it good when they
have staff to take care of them.

I have 13 cats and I have to agree. You feed and water them, clean their litter box, they have it made! But I couldn't live without my babies and their unconditional love. I really enjoyed this, and yes, I think the cats of today were very good people reincarnated. Purrfect.

A cute one. When we are long gone, cats will survive quite nicely, thank you. Good to see you back writing poetry. I thought you were going to write about the haboobs you caused in Phoenix. ;-)

Hey girl, its good to see you writing, you have been as for cats, well, I can pet them and be friends with them, just can't live with them as I love dogs...and I will have another one day again, but for now I have no pets except my stuffed ALF doll...;-) ed

I don't believe, as does George, that cats are supreme. They have that haughty facade about them, and they are geared to be more free. Dogs are the opposite, they love unconditionally, and am always happy to see you, always wanting to please. I like cats and believe that more women like cats than men is because of their wild nature and unpredictably, much like the human female species. Good to see you again, Sherry.

I don't believe in reincarnation, but if I were to come back to life, I'd want to be a cat. Cats rule and dogs DROOL (sorry, dog fans)! Adorable poem that describes a cat with a capital C!! And Sidekick and Jackson are both precious! Awwe!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Texas, Karen Lynn. :D +purring contentedly at this poem+

No doubt about it cats are supreme but I still like dogs better.
