Cats understand the good life

She's smart too my kitty, she don't overeat,

she stays thin and wiry, and light on her feet,

The two lines above, they rhyme well because,

I used the word feet, where I should of used paws,

She's not met a stranger, she's friendly to others,

I'd be much more like her, if I had my druthers,

When you pet her she's happy, she proves it with purrs,

but if a dog's close around, she'll protect what is hers,

She's perceptive and bright, and knows before me,

when the grandfather clock, is about to strike three,

She'll roll on the ground, or jump and free fall,

just to make herself happy, for no reason at all,

Her heart never beats, much more than it should

She has things in perspective, I wish that I could,

So see folks my kitty, cute Scarlet she's grand,

She lives her life well, let's give her a hand,

But before we do that, let's look at her eating,

A cluster fly that, she just gave a good beating.
