I want to be a cat...

Oh to be a cat....
just think of that!
Sleeping on whatever pleases
while dreaming of tasty meeses.
Carelessly shedding furry hairs
and lounging on the sunny stairs
No chores for me-no siree
my life is aimless- so carefree
To be a cat would be a laugh
No bosses here- as I have staff !!

I've never had a cat - I am really very allergic to them - but they seem so serene and they definitely seem to runthe show.

That was great! So clever and funny! And it reminds me of my friends' cats who most certainly believe they are in charge of the household!

This is so fun. My dogs, snuggled up close to me now, say they have it pretty good too.

hahahaha...awesome!! Totally loved this one!! My parents have a cat, and listening to his stories (of laziness), I am beginning to wonder if they adopted him to get the sense of having a more obedient child! But boy!!! They treat him like a prince!! The day I get to see him, I wonder who's gonna be more jealous - him or me!! :))

Absolutely love your cat and curtain photo. Our pup Pepper loves to hide behind the see through curtains, I guess they both think they are getting away with something.
