Dogs and Cats (but mostly cats)

    The other day, my husband and I drove down our driveway.  As usual, Kitty was perched on top of my van, looking down on his kingdom.  

    "There's Lord Kitty,"  my husband observed.  


It's true.  Kitty does have the self satisfied demeanor of one who is lord of all he surveys.  


A couple of years ago, my neighbor told me a funny joke.  Like all good jokes, it's funny because it's so true.


QUESTION: What's the difference between a dog and a cat?


ANSWER: The dog thinks, "She feeds me, she loves me, she takes care of me.                    SHE must be a goddess!"

 The cat thinks:  "She feeds me, she loves me, she takes care of me.                                                  I must be a god!"  


Here's a little poem I wrote this morning:  


Little Lord Kitty


Little Lord Kitty

In furry white britches

Sits by the back door

Alert to the kitchen


Mama's been cooking

And it smells delicious

Biscuits and gravy

And country fried chicken


Nodding and dozing

He sits in the sun

And waits for the signal

That dinner is done


The sound of forks raking

On dishes for scraps

And Mama's voice saying,

"Give this to the cat."  


Contentedly smacking

He says to himself,

"I am Lord Kitty.

They worship me well.

I must be a god,

If not me, who else?"  


Hope you have a good weekend, this last weekend of April, 2012.  It's half price weekend at the Good Will stores of East Tennessee!  I'll look for my fellow treasure hunters there.  


Be Well and Good Luck,

Martha Maria
