When It's Cold You Humans Are Told!

Have to wait and see who this could be!

The cat was trying to sleep the other night and stupid Pat would not stay just right. He had to roll here and there and just curl up my neck hair. So I swatted him good and he soon understood. He did more so when I bit his arm around the elbow.

Pick a spot and stay,
That is how you lay.
For the entire night,
Until I see the sunlight.

If I want to sleep,
Ever so deep,
On your ass,
You take a pass.

If I want all of the bed,
You move your damn head.
You play like you're dead.
No matter how much I cause you dread.

If I want the pillow.
Go grab a pussy willow.
See the cat is nice,
Giving you a feline slice.

Or at least there is the name,
That brings some fame.
Just don't let things rise.
I may pounce should that arise.

If you can't tell from my look,
That I think you're a crook.
For stealing my sleep,
You flip flopping creep.

Then your leg will fry,
I'll poke you in the eye.
I'll steal the covers too.
And stick to you like glue.

It is cold,
So I am sold.
Even if you stink,
I'll curl up at our rink.

Then you stay still.
Or I'll give you a thrill.
The bed is mine,
All belongs to the feline.

You just rent your little spot.
I don't care if I make you hot.
Just stay in one place,
Don't make a funny face.

Don't grunt or move at all.
Don't go running down the hall.
Hold it all night.
And don't take flight.

I am the master of the room.
You are just the broom.
I'll lay like I'm in bloom.
You just stay still or I'll cause you doom.

All you humans take such advice or you'll be the ones chowing down on mice. When the cat wants the bed whether it's at your feet or at your head. Just stay still and you will suffer no ill will. If you move though I can't be responsible for what happens at your show. So just let the night pass and maybe you won't, but I'll be a happy little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

  3. I know exactly where you're coming from here Pat, if a cat wants the bed then he's going to just take it haha. I love that about cats though, very cute piece of writing mate.

  4. That's a narrow fix
    The Cat decides on Pat
    Pat has to accept it
    Has to 'rent' for a nap
    Cat head of the household?
    The Master of the room
    It has got a stranglehold
    Pat just has to conform

    1. Very true

  5. ha assert who is in charge
    and living large
    i am sure is annoying
    feeling the humans are toying with you
    my moving all over the bed at your zoo
    just give'm a claw or two
    and they will def listen to you
    (or throw you out in the cold, ha)

  8. I used to have my favorite chair
    But now I find a feline there
    So OK Pussy, you are new
    I'll chose another, leave that for you
    But when I go to pick my spot
    I find you there go get a cot
    I think that cats can read one's mind
    What ever chair there do I find
    A furry thing tight in a ball
    Grrrr I'd like to kick her down the hall
    Sweet and purring but I vent
    She's become the queen of my whole darn tent

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah that is the way it goes
      And it only grows
      First the chair, than the couch
      Than everywhere you want to slouch
      We just can't win
      So may as well give in
      Then we are the ones on the floor
      Next they'll make us do a chore

  12. I sleep with Ruby, my beloved grey tabby
    When I move around a lot at night she gets crabby
    She's like "Stay in one place already!!"
    So I have learned to sleep still and steady

  14. Oh, that is so true.
    Same thing at our zoo.
    But only to The Mister.
    Must be his whiskers.
    They pile on his side alone
    and leave me to sleep in a zone.
    He complains in the morning
    but I give a warning
    that they must know I need my beauty sleep!
    Didn't know there was a problem as I sleep so deep!

    1. haha that is a bit eerie
      But they do need you cheery
      After all you feed them each day
      And are always around to play
      Or maybe he just has a better smell
      Or they want to cause him hell haha

    2. haha...I take my shower at night
      so I don't think I cause a stink fright.
      I think they're just nice to me
      because I'm so sweet, you see.
      lol....

      Delete
    3. lol that is prob it
      Or they don't trust you one bit
      After all
      You did get them all snip snip at your hall

      Delete
    4. Yes, that is true at my hall
      the horror I hope they don't recall.
      Maybe they think it was just a bad dream
      and I'm as innocent as I seem.

      Delete
    5. haha i doubt that
      They'll think twice before falling for that cage trick again at your mat

      Delete
    6. yeah, they are too smart for their own good
      no treats in a cage for this smart brood.
      Might have to take Whiskers to the vet.
      At least she'll let me pick her up and pet.
      I think she hurt her mouth some how.
      She won't eat and her mouth smells like a cow.
      lol...

      Delete
    7. Blah to that
      After he bills for Cassie cat
      Hate the vet
      But they do fix each pet
      Could have some mouth issue going out
      Hopefully it is easily treatable at your lawn

      Delete
    8. Yeah, I have to take her tomorrow
      she looks in pain and in sorrow.
      Can't eat for about a week
      I think it's her tongue instead of her teeth!
      Got in a bad fight a while back
      must have bitten who did the attack!

      Delete
    9. Got germs from a bite
      That is a fright
      Could have taken a claw as well
      Have to get that fixed at your cell
      As if they don't eat
      Not even a treat
      Fatty liver they will get soon
      And $2000 vet bill will swoon

      Delete
    10. that would be funny
      if you didn't just go through it, honey.
      But I don't have a dvd collection to sell
      so that bill would really cause me hell!

      Delete
    11. haha yeah at least she can say
      She made more room to run around my bay
      And really have to dig for a pot of gold
      If that took hold

      Goes for tons of dough

    12. don't exactly have an extra meteorite laying around
      here or anywhere in town
      but if I find one or two

      Jack said I could use his Petsmart gift card
      and take her to the vet there at their yard
      and I got a coupon online, too,
      for a free exam and consultation! Woo hoo!
      Hopefully the rest won't cost too much
      and Jack can safe her life and such.
      haha.

  17. All I can say is you could substitute feline for canine and cat for dog and that would describe sharing a bed with a certain corgi I know, especially the part of "I'm the master of this room". Thing is the bed is big enough for three if someone would take his fair share.....

    cute rhyme :)

  19. My pets are allowed to sleep anywhere except my bed. I learned long ago that once I cave in and let them up, it's no longer MY bed anymore. Then I wake up with cramped muscles from balling up into the tiny spot they let me have. Not cool.

  30. it does seem like they are the masters of the kingdom. Cats especially. Mine at least hops off the bed if I move my arm or leg while asleep, thank God she doesn't bite or swat at night, I might wake up with a terrible fright, and a scar or two, that would be so uncool.

  33. Sounds like my dog. I woke up with the worst backache the other day from him. And because of that, he's still spending his nights sleeping in my son's room. By the next time he butters me up for a spot on my bed, he'll know who gets to stretch out and be the most comfy all night!

    Mojo puts up quite a fight.
    He wants to share my bed with me.
    I want to sleep and sleep male-free.
    So the cat gets the boot out of my room
    To pay for all who've caused me gloom.
    But he comes back again, that stubborn lad.
    Seems they like the gals who treat 'em bad.
