Sleep Like That? Pfft Says The Cat!

The cat has a new neighbor at our show. Does it still count as neighbors in apartments buildings though? Bah, we'll leave that for another day. They sure prove an old saying is full of crap at their bay.

Could be, almost, maybe,
You sleep like a baby.
Umm, you scream and cry,
Acting like you are about to die?

You are an attention seeker?
A diaper umm leaker?
You cry some more,
Louder than any snore.

Except maybe the blue guy.
His snore can carry high.
So he says anyway,
Mostly every day.

Wow, that is some sleep.
Two minutes at your keep.
Then you whine all night.
Sleep or fright?

The cat will choose the later.
No sleep with that small matter.
Until you have to work,
And they think keeping you up is a perk.

Devils they may be.
But sleep like one at your sea?
Are you whiny too?
Do you have a diaper collect your poo?

Damn, no wonder you sleep like that.
Steer clear of the cat.
I'll pelt you with scat of my own,
If you give me any whiny in the night tone.

Wouldn't you rather sleep like cat?
Whenever and wherever you wanted where you're at?
Or maybe a mutt,
Even if you get the inkling to sniff a butt.

At least they can sleep well.
Babies are just whiny as hell.
Why not sleep like someone sane?
Is that too much of a pain?

Instead you'd rather whine and leak?
Not something I'd seek.
So go and sleep like a baby,
You might get a few minutes, maybe.

Is that saying dumb or is it just me? Thankfully they are across the hall at our sea. That means we only hear when near the door. That thing sure can roar. The cat runs away with Cass. No hair puller is getting near my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  2. Neighbors, bad news
    Can make you turn to the booze
    Can make you move
    Or upset your groove
    Some have babies that scream in the night
    Grow up and go fly a kite
    A few may offer a perk
    If minus a funny quirk
    Some are creepy as hell
    Make noise like a big old fat bell
    Thank whoever invented doors
    You can separate yourself from the bores

    1. Oh, I've had creepy as hell
      Rather take the screaming baby where we dwell
      The cats pin back their ears and run though
      Not a fan of the screaming show

  7. Cats and dogs both know how to sleep
    they close their eyes, don't let out a peep
    except if a neighbor turns out to be a creep!

  8. That's one of the reasons why I never wanted to move to an apartment. You just live too close to your neighbors

  9. Well, guess we are very lucky here, that we are not close enough to hear a baby crying . That would not be fun. I know I couldn't stand living in an apartment. Good luck to you Pat.

  12. Oooh, Look at the Baby
    Churchill never looked so good to me.
    It's supposed to be cute
    but where can I find the mute
    button on this thing that squirms
    and probably has lots of germs.
    No thanks, says I,
    diaper changing is not my style.
    I've never changed one, I'd rather walk a mile
    on my knees than do that at 3am
    they cry and pee, poo and have phlegm.
    This is why I am just an Aunt
    Thank God for that, I just can't
    deal with that. So sorry for you
    at your zoo.

    1. hahaha yeah all that crap
      Would send the cat across the map
      Once they get older they are fine
      They don't so much bother the feline
      Otherwise though
      He runs if they show

  30. I have a neighbor who goes to sleep with her tv on.
    On summer nights I'm awake till dawn.
    No matter how I try,

    followed by cat stretching at my mat!
