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.

Cat burglar – the open window (Cat poem)


An open window, irresistible for a cat!

Cat burglar – the open window

They have left the window open! Have they all gone off to sleep?
Along the wall in perfect silence, his four paws slowly creep.
The smell of cooked chicken is floating out upon the air,
Telling him, quite clearly, that there is food for him in there.
Getting closer to the window, they have left it open wide!
With perfect elegance, he quietly climbs through inside.

Pausing in perfect stillness, he listens for any sound,
His cat senses tell him that there’s nothing moving around.
The chicken must be somewhere, left over from the barbecue,
Surely, very soon, his searching must bring it into view.
Ah! It’s on the table in a box, they have left off the lid!
He jumps upon the table top, but then he starts to skid.

Sliding along on a plastic plate, he hits the chicken fast,
Scattering it everywhere, and making quite a blast.
Then from upstairs he can hear people beginning to shout,
It’s time to cut his losses, and scrambles rapidly to get out.
Safely out the window he runs along the wall in retreat,
However he did manage to get a chicken wing to eat.

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.

My dinner is late! (Cat poem)


A hungry cat is waiting

My dinner is late!

What do you mean by coming home so late!
You know I should have been fed by now.
I saw you creeping through the garden gate,
Hoping that I would not see you somehow.

But I watched you creeping round behind,
I heard you quietly open the backdoor.
So just here I will sit for you to find,
Beside my bowl, on this cold hard floor.

Can’t you see that I’m getting thinner,
All caused by this one hour delay.
If you could please now serve my dinner,
As I am starting to fade away.

My food is in the cupboard just there,
Let me eat before I fade from view.
Afterwards I will come to your chair,
Climb up and share a lap with you.

I will settle whilst you stroke my fur,
Maybe even brush me with my comb.
I’m a forgiving cat, so I shall purr,
Even though you were so late home.

Purrfect sleeping place (cat poem)


Alfie knows where there’s a good place to sleep

To read Lily-Low’s first poem:
The Morning Windowsill

Purrfect Sleeping place

It’s too hot and Alfie can find no shade in his garden,
But next door, he knows just where the perfect spot can be found,
And since he is a cat, he asks for nobody’s pardon,
To climb up onto the fence and take a look around.

He knows that Lily-Low claims this garden for her own,
As her windowsill looks out upon all there is to see.
But this afternoon, her windowsill is all alone,
For in this sun, it is far too hot a place for her to be!

In stealth, he climbs down and begins to slowly creep,
Going around the bush towards that old garden seat.
Soon he will be able to fall peacefully asleep,
Deep in the shade, away from all this summer heat.

Alas, no sooner had he settled down for his snooze,
The backdoor opens and Lily-Low wanders outside.
Oh dear! Which direction is she now going to choose?
Although if he stays still, then he may be able to hide.

Lily-Low looks around, she already knows he is there!
Her white coat shining brightly in the afternoon sun.
Her green eyes saying quite clearly ‘of you, I am aware!’
And Alfie knows that it is time for him to get up and run!

Back over the fence he retreats as fast as he is able,
With a contented purr Lily-Low reclaims her own space.
But in his own garden, the sunshade is now up by the table,
So he can sleep peacefully in his own shady place!

The Cat in the night (Cat poem)


A nighttime stroll!

The cat in the night

Moving silently through the deep dark night,
A suit of pure black with four boots of white.
A white tuxedo to finish her off to perfection,
A beautiful sight in the moonlights reflection.

Quietly she strolls through the garden deep,
Whilst the world around her is fast asleep.
Then through the door that is only for her,
She enters the house without causing a stir.

Upon the bed she settles down with a yawn,
To sleep in contentment until the new dawn,
Until her staff awake and see that she’s there.
To give her a stroke and show that they care.

Sitting on the fence (Cat poem)


An indecisive cat!

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.

The morning windowsill (cat poem)


Lily-Low’s morning routine 

The morning windowsill

Upon the windowsill, Lily-Low seeks out that sunny spot,
Warm as the sun rises, but by noon it would be far too hot!
With breakfast now over, it’s time for her to wash and clean,
Meticulously, until there’s not a speck of dirt to be seen.
With pride, she admires her elegant coat of soft white fur,
With contentment, she settles down and begins to purr.

Her head resting upon her paws, she drifts slowly off to sleep,
When you want to go past then, with great stealth, you slowly creep.
She may just allow an occasional stroke upon her head,
Although if you disturb her, it will be her claw instead!
As the sun creeps higher, she wakes and stretches out her paws,
Then jumping off the windowsill, she wanders off outdoors.
