Purrsday Poetry: Cat Competition

My mom!  No, MY mom! The saga continues.

I’m trying to write, but my cats block the venue.

The fierce competition for monitor blocking

surpassed inconvenience and turned into SHOCKING.

“I can’t see around you!” I yell at invaders,

continuing onward, my mini crusaders

insist upon fighting, and scratching the screen.

I yowl even louder, “Stop being so mean!”

One is insulted, the other revolted,

my typing betraying that I am devoted

to something else other than kitty demands,

a horrible concept they can’t understand.

I see by their movements, their tiny minds scheme!

They’re thinking up methods to spoil my dreams!

They quickly devour the treats that I’ve scattered,

then climb into boxes like nothing else mattered.

I’ve learned a few tricks while living with felines,

the cold, hardened stares mean you MUST make a beeline

for treats or for boxes…for their favorite foods,

so they don’t remember to poop in your shoes.

      Cats. Can’t live with ’em and can’t live without ’em. They manage to make us keep them anyhow. Or maybe it’s the other way around?

      I know what you mean. Other Brother Coon Cat has a knack for hitting all the wrong keys. Once, he erased the entire manuscript of a book, then saved it and closed it. He was laying down in front of the computer, looked me straight in the eye and started hitting the keyboard with one foot. Fortunately, There was a restore button, so I only lost a few paragraphs instead of the many pages I’d written.

      To this day, I don’t know how he did it.
