Feline Envy



~~~

There is always food and a sunny place to nap

And if I am in the mood, Iโ€™ll sit upon your lap

Just coo your loving words and stroke my silky fur

And all I am required to do is sit there and purr

~~~

You call me by name, but I only come when I want

I donโ€™t sit or beg, I am not expected to do stunts

I do as I please and you are accepting of this

You see to my every whim and demanding wish

~~~

There are no lists of chores for me to get done

My day is all about eating, napping, and fun

I will patiently listen as you unspool your day

But not really understand a word you say

~~~

I will be indifferent, barely domesticated

But living a luxurious life uncomplicated

And what life could be any grander than that

If you loved me the way you love that cat

~~~

  1. Do we give unconditional love to our pets because they give us unconditional love first? Is that 100% possible with humans? Nonetheless, you’ve given me insight as what I might want to “become” in my next life! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. You are playful here and I love it. Beautifully written. Before I got to the end I was thinking โ€œI want to be a cat. My own catโ€ ๐Ÿ˜Š The finale changed some things ๐Ÿ˜Š. Have a great week Brad โค๏ธ

    Love it! I’ve been told by some, “I wish I was your dog!” Perhaps I DO dote over her more than most humans.

  4. Well, as a cat lover, I have to love this poem. So well written my friend! A great way to say what a cat would say…really good work! Take good care and all the best,
    F.
