I know he lurks;
alert eyes behind the sofa
waiting, waiting.
Suddenly a paw torturing
these feet, yanking at
my socks

Crawling the pond edge
musing perhaps how cold
it might be, the creature
Pats delicate yet
Springs back in terror;
He won't be soaked today.

Stolen comfort, he
Places himself in prime
Spot- my chair
No longer
my chair. Only
the shake shake of biscuits
allow his ginger tail to bob
into the kitchen
expecting.

Begrudgingly, he plants
his purr-box up against
my side. The gentle scratch
behind his ear reminds
us both, he's always
in charge.  
Nothing too serious and a little cliche, but here is a little poem I wrote after using the "Verses poetry" app for the iphone to start me off.

I miss my cats :(

Fun writing! My cat's inspire a good bit of my poetry.

I like this a lot, especially the first two verses - the image of the cat that's called up is very vivid.

Made me think of my cat. I miss her too :(

I once trained a cat for treats. it was a 3 step process:

1.1st shake of can: treat time, come to "the location" and wait.
2. 2nd shake: okay to jump up and get treats
3. 2 treats, no more, no less. if less, meow at me until I give it. if more, leave it, never eat it.

side effect: when I snored, she bit my toes. if my toes were covered, she'd sleep on my head.

I've never had a cat, but this makes me want one. Sounds exactly like other cats I've met. :)

My own cat is currently headbutting the computer, so this is rather apt. I think she wants chicken.

Why do cats always steal whatever seat you've been in?

Because it's warmer than the seats no-one has sat in.
