He’s not an ordinary cat,
A peculiar cat is he.
Roams around the beach all day,
Getting all his meals for free.
A cute little orange tabby
He’s the nicest kind of fellow,
Makes friends everywhere he goes,
And really is quite mellow!
He came to visit us one day,
At our cottage on the shore,
Made himself right at home,
When he stepped inside the door.
We shared our breakfast with him,
And cheerfully did he eat!
Then he climbed upon the bed,
And was soon fast asleep!
We wondered where he came from,
And if he had a home,
We guessed the precious little guy,
Had no choice but to roam.
He slept for a couple of hours,
We even heard him snore!
Then he awoke and wanted out,
And raced to the house next door!
An old man in the garden,
Gently cuddled the cat,
Told him he’d looked all around,
Wondering where he was at!
The kitty purred and nuzzled his face,
And it didn’t take too long,
For us to figure out our guess
About the cat was wrong!
