DAUGHTER’S CAT

By 8th December 2007December 9th, 2019No Comments

You know the cat I mentioned, my daughter had one too
Hers was a new waif and stray and wouldn’t use the loo

It picked her out from other folk, when it was in dire need
She took it in and rescued it and gave it a good feed

The vet he checked it over, saw mites within its ears
Conjunctivitis in its eyes thus causing all the tears

All was never lost dear, even stray cats can dream
Of vets and magic ointment and of his magic cream

Litter trays like magic, appearing from the sky
Lovely Tins of cat food, it makes you want to cry

How do you train a cat Mum, does it take you long ?
I can hear her purr mum, it sounds just like a song

You don’t train a cat dear even when there new
If you don’t watch it, she’ll be training you.

She wandered in the Garden underneath the car
Because she couldn’t hear dear, she didn’t run too far

You didn’t know that she was deaf dear and couldn’t hear a thing
That’s why she was run over, underneath your wing.

We know how much you loved her it was becoming such a joke
We saw how upset you were today, your actions loudly spoke

When some left this skinny cat, abandoned and all alone
You’re the one who took her in, and gave to her a home

I’m sorry that, you’ve been upset and today has made you sad
You are the one who we love so much; you’re loving Mum & Dad
