DMC: "Dear Cat" by Katie Gast

Dear Cat,

I love you on my lap.
I love to hear your purr.
But must your play involve a snap
And what’s with all the fur?
Oh queen, aloof. You go your way
You barely look at me.

Best regards throughout your day,
Your slave eternally.

  1. Exactly right, that 'love eternally!" I also love that it isn't all perfect.

  2. Purrrfect, Katie! (I know you were expecting a dorky pun from someone... it may as well be me.) Especially loved "Oh queen, aloof" and "Your slave eternally."

  3. Very nice, Katie--I agree with Michelle about those two lines. Definitely the cat's meow.

  4. Thanks for the comments. I actually took the advise on the blog and read up on cats (even though I thought I knew everything about them). I learned that a queen is a female cat and that helped me with the ending. Katie Gast

  5. Another fun poem--I agree, it's "purr-fect" ;)

  6. Perfectly adorable. I love "Your slave eternally" especially. Thanks for sharing it here.
