Lily-Low’s visit to the vet (cat poem)

Coping with a reluctant cat

Lily-Low’s visit to the vet

Come Lily-Low,
It’s time to go,
There’s really no need to put on such a show.
Please get in here,
Lily-Low dear,
You usually climb in when boxes appear.
Don’t run away,
Be good this day,
It will not be too long in there you will stay.

Oh, do get in!
You cannot win,
Stop trying to hide behind the kitchen bin.
I’ve got you now,
Stop that meow,
I will get this lid shut on the box, somehow.
At last, it’s done,
The lid has won
Now we’re at the vets, the check-up has begun.

We’re home once more,
Back through the door,
Just let me put your box down onto the floor.
Out you can get,
There’s no more vet,
See, there was no reason to get so upset.
Now let me be,
Can you not see,
That I’m exhausted and need my cup of tea.
