A cat can see your every thought
Both what you did and what you ought.
They're the judge and they're the jury.
You can skip the sound and fury.

A dog will love you to your dying day.
And stand by you, come what may.
A cat will check your credit score
And always ask for "A little more?"

Little kittens will win you over.
Then turn around and growl at 'Rover'.
Tiny little ball of fluff,
But Rover will have had enough!

Some of my cats remind me of kin,
That came back in a furry skin.
There's Aunt Peg and Uncle Ed.
She complains, he's still in the bed.

So if you think that you're in charge,
You go hungry and they live 'Large'!
Forget all about vacation plans.
You gotta stay and open the cans!

If the time comes, and die I must,
You'll remember this I trust..
I'll ask Saint Peter on the welcome mat,
"One more time,,,but as a cat?"
