Day 4: NaPoWriMo 2021

A Few Thoughts on Cats from Someone Who Doesn’t Have One

The Buttered Toast Theory

The cat just walked across the butter
then jumped down off the table.
They do. It’s true. It’s not just toast –
cats land butter-side down, too.

Catnap Party

Its brain is in a clutter
of party noise and bluster
Catnip, milk and cream
Spin yarns of yawning dreams

Those cats are singing
Andrew Lloyd Webber
on the fence again.


A rustle in the undergrowth
In a patch of sunlight
A cat’s shadow rides on air

  3. We’ve a neighbor who has a cat who appears to be a mouser for the neighborhood…
    I don’t have one now, but I did. And I know of those who have ’em.
    Crafty critters sleeping most of the day away… ready to butter us up with purrs when they misbehave. 🐱
