Cat Owner's Prayer

Cat Owner's Prayer by cherithsky
Cat Owner's Prayer, a photo by cherithsky on Flickr.
Because I'm only human,
It's sometimes hard to be
The wise, all-knowing creature
That my cat expects of me.

And so I pray for special help
To somehow understand
The subtle implications
Of each proud meowed command.

Oh, let me not forget that chairs
Were put on earth to shred;
And what I like to call a lap
Is actually a bed.

I know it's really lots to ask
But please, oh please, take pity;
And though I'm only human,
Make me worthy of my kitty!

  1. Cute. :-)

    I don't know that my cats would think I'm "worthy," most likely not. But from my perspective, all I do is serve their needs. LOL.

  2. "Alright Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up."


  3. What a cute poem. And I have to admit ... there's a lot of truth in it! :)

  4. Oh, we like this poem. Hugs and nose kisses
