just thinking about a cat's life -- one that's loved of course

The Cat's Meow

Cats have it made
I want to be a cat some day
I want to curl up on a lap
And gently paw and slap
A fuzzy little toy
And sleep with my favorite boy
Stretch out my legs and splay my claws
I want to scratch up the furniture and walls
I want to shed wherever I walk
I want to meow when I talk
I want someone to stroke my fur
And lay by my side while I purr
I want to eat whatever I like
And snub my nose then take a hike
I want to rub myself between the legs
Of the one who has the privilege
To have me in their life for awhile
And possibly I might give them a smile
Oh, I want to be a cat someday
And show the world my superior way
Of living.

Cute! Of course cats don't live very long, but they don't seem too bothered by the fact...

Yeah, I've been thinking that when I'm observing my cats...especially the big furry male... he knows how to enjoy life and it just seems like such a pleasant life being him. :)
