Cat and mouse distractions...

Kitty Playtime

Laughter Contest Winner 

What could be more fun than me?
I’ll make her stop typing, you’ll see.
Because I’m now able, I’ll leap on the table.
So I launch myself into space –  
there’s papers all over the place
that I like to shuffle and chase;
then I scamper to her with grace
and rub my fur in her face.
That gets her attention. Hey! Did I mention, 
I can get HER to play any time of the day?
She's my personal valet. What more need I say?

I sprawl on her knees while she taps at the keys.
There’s a thing in her hand I don’t understand – 
a thing that I’ve never seen,
attached to some sort of machine.
It’s a MOUSE that she uses, 
to move bits when she chooses.
And now there’s a ‘thing’ on the screen.
From the corner of my eye
I saw it zoom by. Perhaps it’s a fly? 
To catch it, perchance, I sprang with a dance
then swatted with glee, for I’m a hunter, you see!
The battle’s been fought – under my paw it is caught, 
but to my dismay the ‘thing’ got away!
Cursors!  I muttered, frustration uttered.

I pretended that I didn’t care, 
and stalked off with my tail in the air.
I want her to play with ME, not write her dumb poetry.
One thing’s for certain, when I climb this curtain
she’ll come running to see what I’ve done,
and then we can have some more FUN!
