A Little Chew Between Me And You!

I was asked the other day why cats chew everything at their bay. Well dogs do it too. We are just more graceful at each zoo. But why do pets chew? I guess it is my job to inform all of you.

You pay no attention,
Not even a mention.
So what are we to do,
But chew and chew.

You leave us all day,
So we make you pay.
Chew up a little of this and that.
Blame the dog, not the cat.

You bring something new,
Into our zoo.
It has a funky smell,
So we chew it to hell.

You take it away.
Pffft we say.
A challenge is grand.
No we can't stand.

You pull and yank.
We'll make you walk the plank.
A game we will win.
The chewing game isn't a sin.

Maybe it just tastes good.
Like the strings on your hood.
Ever chewed string?
The taste buds sing.

Or there is indigestion as well.
When that rings a bell,
May need the floor mat,
Or chew on your hat.

You dropped it.
The floor it hit.
Five second rule.
We win, you drool.

Then there are the toys,
They bring all joys.
We can chew those up,
So why are other things a hiccup?

We own all,
At each and every hall.
So what we want to chew we chew.
And now you have a clue.

Any other information you wish to know? The cat is available for requests at his show. You humans still will not let us chew. I guess that just means more work for you. Now I will go chew some grass, that is allowed by my little rhyming ass.

Fill your rummer, get drunk all summer.

  2. Chew up a little of this and that
    That is reason why it is called a cat
    Playful with things
    Wanting to sing
    But enough not to cause unwanted spat

  9. Most human addictions are based around the mouth--smoking, drinking, overeating, etc. Maybe it's the same for animals!!!

  10. #11! Ten to go
    And I'll beat Hank at your show.
    My cat chews on my hand.
    It isn't so grand.
    Cuz his teeth are real sharp.
    He must think I'm carp.
    I shout, "Damn, go away!"
    He meows, "I'm hungry. I'll stay."

  14. Who knew that chewed string tasted so good. But not so good for the insides when swallowed. But oh so much fun to chew things up.

  16. Koda was not a chewer
    did not destroy any shoes or such
    but maybe that was because
    I fed him snacks too much!

  17. The kitties chew
    at your zoo
    but only because
    they are missing you.

    Our house kitties don't chew things up, but early on everything was a scratching post for them. A small squirt of water ended that behaviour.

    To get that widget Google Top Commentators. It would be fun to see how yours looked. I'm betting Betsy would have top honours.

    1. They never scratched much at my sea
      But the chewing they did with glee
      Still do once in a while as well
      I bet Betsy or Brian will be first at my cell

    2. You'll have to eliminate yourself, but there are instructions on how to do that. I showed up as first and second. Once as Anne and then as Anne O'Leary. So it doesn't consolidate name changes. It won't show all my comments. Elsie should have been somewhere at the top of my list, but she changed from "L" to Elsie and it won't add those together. I don't think there's any way to make that happen.

    3. I tried to put it on but it didn't do a thing
      Just screwed up at my wing

  20. Haha - you are right about dogs chewing too. One of mine is especially chewy and has wrecked earphones, a glasses case, ingested parts of pens. I always check the floor before I leave home to see that NOTHING Tulip might be interested in is within reach.

  22. All plausible reasons. One of our cats will always try to steal the scouring pad from the sink and run off with it. I just wish he would scrub a little with it while he is gnawing on the thing.

    1. hahaha must be quite tasty fun
      So instead of scrubbing he just grabs it and will run

  23. My cats don't chew!
    Not a single string or shoe!
    I wonder if it helps that they go prowling outside.
    Maybe that keeps the chewing desires at low tide.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That must be it
      Because we had some growing up that never chewed one bit
      They went outdoors and did their thing
      So maybe they never needed string

  24. We had a dog that would chew any toy into pieces so small,
