Blessings are Fishes


June 27, 2017 by petrujviljoen

Charlie stomps off to find her own food

Cat’s tail whips into the air

Human isn’t being fair!


Cat’s tail slashes with each mew

Human is sitting in her preacher pew!


There’s no fish in my food!

And that ain’t any good!

The chicken livers are dry!

Can’t you even try?


Human explains, make excuses

Placates – it’s not that she refuses

She simply hasn’t got

Promise! It isn’t a plot!


Cat stomps off

Life here is rough


Oye, Dame Densch

I’m only a mensch

  1. Poor cat. I wonder if my dogs have similar thoughts. Thank you for your comment. Point well taken. Apologies. Mine was inappropriate.

    Funny, no fish, however someone is having a “barnie na nah!”

    Purrrfectly finicky cat!

  4. Glenn Buttkus says:

    Our cat is 16, and he needs “senior food” or he throws up–making him mostly an outside critter these days. A bunch of us at one time wrote “dog poems’–thus becoming dog poets.

  5. Bodhirose says:

    I have one of those critters myself…always the diva!

  6. Smart kitty. Love it. 🙂

  7. Charley says:

    Haha! I owned that cat! Um, two of them… at two different times. Sometimes the blessing of patience and forbearance comes as lessons rather than in a nicely-wrapped package. Fish it is!

  8. E says:

    Well hello sassy pants, haha.

  9. Grace says:

    The cat rules, smiles !

  10. Nan Mykel says:

    That must be Charlie!

  11. Haha, love this cat’s-eye view of the world. Like mine, it mostly revolves around food!

    The blessing of having a picky cat who wants fish. I suppose cats are usually blessings.

  13. kim881 says:

    I love cat poems! I will keep cats in mind for a future prompt.

  14. You have captured the feline mind perfectly… love the image of that cat stomping off.. fish or nothing.

  15. Don’t mess with the cat.Bring the fish.

  16. Well, that’s cats for you. What did you expect?
