One Cat’s Christmas

A Feline Reverie


I lie easy by the hearth
Recalling a winter long ago
Just a sparkly eyed kitten
The first time I saw snow.

They brought me home that December
The house was new and strange
With curiosity I walked it over
And soon my life it changed.

Early Christmas morning.
The humans they crept down
A new scratching post and some toy mice
Were the presents that I found.

As I clawed off all the paper
I knew this place was good
I started to play, to whirl & whirl away
As only this cat could.

Soon, tiredness overtook me,
In the warmth of the winter fire.
Into a ball I curled, and my tail furled
To the sound of a christmas choir.

Now I’m an older wiser cat,
There’s something that occurs to me
The best present that you can ever have,
Is to be settled on a kind human’s knee.

You see, its warm and safe there
To be lost in feline dreams,
Of warm and food, and a mother cat
A feline reverie.

 

 

Wishing all you cats out there a Merry & Restful Christmas & A Very Happy New Year. ….. o.k. humans too!

Dave the Cat

Well now, the England Football squad are currently in Qatar and training in the Heat of Doha, but some of their news has been hijacked by Dave the cat. Dave, who has been so named by John Stones, seems to have caught the hearts of Stones and Walker (no surprise there, that’s cats for ya).

There are many stray cats in Doha but Kyle Walker has said that, if possible, he would like to adopt Dave if England win the World Cup.

We wish the team well for Saturday, so come on you Lions! And, of course those three lions would certainly care about a fellow cat like Dave.

Good Luck to the three lions from the Moggyblog bunch.
