Sitting on the fence
Sitting on the fence, the cat casually looks around,
Should he stay up here, or go back down to the ground?
The sun is pleasant and he has enjoyed the view,
However, he can sense, that a cat nap is due.
He has been working quite hard, watching birds fly pass,
So now all he needs, is a nice patch of soft grass.
Sitting on the fence, he simply cannot decide,
Into which of these gardens he now wants to reside?
Then, from behind him, he hears an opening door,
They are letting their dog into the garden once more!
Their dog’s old and harmless, but she can be such a pest!
So into the other garden, he descends, for his rest.
Once down from the fence, he seeks out the perfect spot,
Slightly in the shade, so he doesn’t get too hot!
His fur needs some attention, some cleaning required,
Washing from ear tips to tail, he’s now feeling quite tired.
Curling up in the grass, his tail touching his nose,
A final gentle purr, then off to sleep he goes.
