A Poem From a Cat

Standard

Thomas and Salem lived in the northern part of the United States that received a lot of snow. Thomas was a man; Salem was his cat. Salem was a very handsome tabby that kept Thomas laughing when he was home. Thomas worked during the day so he was home in the evening to keep Salem company. Since he was a very smart cat, Thomas was able to teach Salem some cute tricks. He would fetch small things like a dog would which was very unusual.

One day, however, Thomas didn’t come home as often in the evening. If he did, he would have another human with him. She seemed very nice, but she wouldn’t pay any attention to Salem. She would just talk to Thomas and pay attention to him. Salem was starting to feel very neglected. He would try to cuddle with her, but she’d just shove him away. Thomas wouldn’t even let him sit on his lap when SHE was around! Salem was getting very angry and didn’t know how to change the situation.

He had been noticing that Thomas was always giving her something like flowers and candy or reading poetry to her, etc. But one day, he gave her a ring! Something seemed different and Salem knew he had to act quickly. But what? If he didn’t get her attention and affection now, he’d be out in the cold. Ah, ha! He had a great idea! He ran down to the flower shop, crept in when a customer opened the door, grabbed some carnations on the counter that another customer was buying, and took off on a dead run when the door opened again. He ran to HER house and waited for her to come out to go somewhere with Thomas. It worked! She thought this was so cute……………

It Was a Very Good Night!

Standard

Enjoy the story.

Tiger was the only cat in the family. There were also two dogs, and they got along with each other very well. Tiger had seen what happened with the dogs around the time of Halloween and he would hide. He didn’t want humans putting all kind of costumes on him. Yuck! The dogs looked so silly, but they’d just wag their tails and act like they were all happy about it. That wasn’t for Tiger. No, sir, cats didn’t do that!

It was time for Halloween again. “Oh, no”, thought Tiger. “Time for me to find a place to hide!” However, things were going to be different this year. The children had decided that the pets should go with them to carry their treat buckets. No costumes for the animals this year. Now, this sounded pretty good to Tiger! He liked being outside and decided he wouldn’t hide. Being a cat, he was curious about what would happen,.

When it was time to go outside to trick or treat, Tiger was so excited that he could hardly stand it. He bounced from floor to couch, from chair to floor, etc. like he had springs in his feet. The children gathered him up along with the dogs and off they went. It was so much fun! Other children would pet him and love on him until he purring so loud he sounded like a freight train. “Yes!”, thought Tiger. “I want to do this every year.” He was so tired when they came home that he fell asleep in the chair. It had been a very good night indeed!
