Bobby is out on his beat (cat poem)


Bobby has his night time duties to perform

Bobby is out on his beat

Bobby is out on his beat,
Walking quietly down the street,
The sun has now set and the dark night has come to call.
It is time to look around,
And see what can now be found,
So for a better view, he jumps up on the neighbours wall.

If their dog has gone to bed,
Then he can jump to their shed.
He glances in their garden, but the dog is nowhere in sight.
So, with a swish of his tail,
Through the darkness he sets sail,
Landing silently, he stops to see what’s moving in the night.

A shadow sweeps from up high,
As an owl goes flying by,
Swooping down into the garden, hunting for a meal to eat,
There is a noise by the house,
It is time to chase a mouse!
But it escapes Bobby by running behind the garden seat.

Crossing the road in the dark,
Something’s changed in the park!
What’s been happening while he’s been off-duty sound asleep?
There are tools laying around,
And a large hole can be found,
The path has been dug up, leaving behind a muddy heap!

It is getting near to dawn,
So, with a stretch and a yawn,
It is time to come off-duty from all his investigating.
Going home he finds his meal,
Then, once he has had his fill,
He washes his fur and strolls off to where his bed is waiting.

Lewy, the library cat (cat poem)


The library can’t survive without him 

Lewy, the library cat

Lewy is the cat who calls the library his home,
His knows where each book on every shelf is found.
Down every corridor he will frequently roam,
That you’ll soon get used to seeing him walking around.

A box has arrived, there are new books to discover!
So he climbs in, for they all need to be inspected.
Carefully he examines each book by its cover,
Just in case any of them need to be rejected.

There is a stack of books waiting to be put away,
So he sits on them and meows to make you aware,
That you should be sorting them all out today,
Rather than drinking coffee, sitting in your chair.

He will escort you to where each of the books must go,
Staying close by your side as you push the trolley along.
For it is part of his job to make sure that you know,
Exactly where upon the bookshelf the books belong.
