When God Created Kitty Cats

A Poem by Virginia (Ginny) Ellis
Copyright April 2009


When God created kitty cats,
He had no Recipe;
He knew He wanted something sweet,
As sweet as sweet could be.

He started out with sugar,
Adding just a trace of spice;
Then stirred in drops of Morning dew,
To keep them fresh and nice

He thought cats should be soft to pet,
So He gave them coats of fur;
So they could show they were content,
He taught them how to purr.

He made for them long tails to wave,
While strutting down the walk;
Then trained them in meow-ology,
So they could do cat-talk.

He made them into acrobats,
And gave them grace and poise;
Their wide-eyes curiosity,
He took from little boys.

He put whiskers on their faces,
Gave them tiny ears for caps;
Then shaped their little bodies,
To snugly fit on laps.

He gave them eyes as big as saucers,
To look into man’s soul;
Then set a tolerance for mankind,
Their purpose and their goal.

Benevolent…and…Generous,
He made so many of them;
Then charged, with fatherly concern,
The human race to love them.

When one jumped up upon His lap,
God gently stroked its head;
The cat gave Him a kitty kiss,
“What wondrous love,” God Said.

God smiled at His accomplishment,
So pleased with His creation;
And said, with pride, as He sat back,
“At last…I’ve reached purr-fection!”

Loyalty

There is no doubt that a dog is loyal.
But does that mean we should emulate him?
After all, he is loyal to people, not to other dogs.
- Karl Kraus

Belling The Cat

BELLING THE CAT: One of the many fables
attributed to the Greek storyteller Aesop
concerns a meeting of mice. They are concerned
about a cat. One mouse has an ingenious idea:
tie a bell around the cat's neck so they can hear the cat
when it is coming. A wonderful idea but with a problem...
which mouse is going to put the bell
on the cat? The job would be suicide.
No one volunteered. The phrase belling the cat
is still in use today. It refers to any idea
that looks good on paper but is useless
in the real world.

The boy gave me a pitying look.

Feral Friday

After 6 weeks of age, a feral offspring, 
previously not around people and handled by them, 
will not be human friendly. You can adopt them, 
but you will not be able cuddle with them. 
Such is an example above. He is loved and well taken care of, 
but it is sad he is missing out on the human/pet bond.
