The Gracious Cat

I’m adored

I am adorable

I am lithe and quick to kill

I am soft and I am furry

I make children laugh and squeal

I have claws and I use them

To temper peoples ways

I have teeth and I use them

To eat mice and get the praise

I am aloof but I love you

Though I show it not

When I go out tonight

I will show you what I’ve caught!

Hope you like my presents

They are for you to behold

My gifts are gifts of love

From a cat that is like gold

I perch upon the sofa arm

I purr at your light touch

You love me so, I know it

And I love you as much

You had me since a kitten

For that I am truly grateful

We’ll be together till the end

Right until the fateful
