AugPoWriMo 13

Went three days without a cat on my lap
How easy it is for them to distract
Put your finger in my eyeball now please
Says the fluff sitting just above my knees
They purr on the bed they purr on my leg
The last thing they’ll do is borrow or beg
Demanding some treats demanding some nip
Haven’t had them since you went on your trip
Now they’re so happy but playing it cool
They’re not like those dogs that sometimes will drool
It’s bath time now see how they lick their paws
They’ll show that cardboard who’s got all the claws
These cats are everything you want to be
Sometimes they even watch birds on TV
