Facts About Cats

20 Oct

From the Heart

Louise Gibson





Cats sleep an amazing amount of time-
close to three-quarters of the time,
counting, of course, the kind of nap
they have made famous.


I am a firm believer in the theory
that one of the ways in which
cats show happiness is by sleeping.
They don’t feel threatened,
so they can relax.


Cats do not “Come”.!
But they do respond to a treat!
Just rattle the bag
and they will come running to your feet.


Cat toys are not expensive-
a bottle cap will do.
A string or a ping pong ball
will keep them running to you.


Note- If I want to get this published,
I better stop being a snail.
I’ll give my cats a treat
and rush to put this in the mail!

    Louise…I LOVE cats!! I grew up with cats in the house (and outside), and have missed having one for a pet. This is a lovely poem. Thanks!

      I had cats as my loyal c ompanions even as a child (I think it was because my dad thought they were good “Mousers”
