12. The Clowder

IT'S CAT WEEK:  SUBMIT PICTURES OF YOUR CAT AND THE CUTEST ONES CAN BE FEATURED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STORY!

So, a worm and a canary, full and resting in a nest

Look out over the land, digesting the rest

They see a group of cats, called The Clowder, that look distressed at best

Meowing and fighting like the Wild Wild West

“Who are those guys?” The worm said to the canary

"Well that’s Copy, Tom, Cool, Fat, Alley, and Scaredy

They’re the neighborhood cats, there used to be seven

But curiosity struck and sent seven to heaven

I will tell you about each one of those felines

But ask me down there and I will surely decline

And as you will see from my descriptions and gossipy chat

There is more than one way to skin a cat

Alley is sly, ragged, slimy and thin

He puts out his food so we look at what he’s dragged in

He’s angry and mean and most likely a murderer

And one of the cats said he was the famous cat burglar."

Dexter wanted to speak, but he was very much stunned

He felt weak as a kitten ... like a cat had his tongue

So the canary talked on, as the cats purred quick

You may not want to read on next week, if you think you’re allergic

To post your kitten pictures, on the scale of Richter
