The Night Before Neutering

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
To this day, I don't know how Squirt knew he was going to the vet the next morning, but here is his story.

Twas the night before neutering
And quiet as a mouse
A six-month-old kitten
Planned his escape from the house.

The doorway was opened
As I arrived home
Squirt flew out in a flash
He wanted to roam.

I was very worried
I loved my sweet pet
But how did Squirt know
He was going to the vet?

I went out after him
Into the night air
I called him; brought treats
But he did not care.

I approached very slowly
Great care I did take
But Squirt took off running
And jumped in a lake!

He leaped from the water
Shot straight into the air
He walked on the water
A neighbor did stare!

She called to me,
“Did I just see what I saw?
That cat just went swimming
Never saw THAT before!â€

I agreed he was truly
A miracle pet
Although now he was looking
Quite muddy and wet.

A stranger came upon us
And called to the kitty
Squirt went to her willingly
He now needed some pity.

She gave me my kitten
And we went back home
I cleaned him all up
Twas the end of his roam.

So there is the story
Of my swimming cat
Does anyone’s angel
Hate the vet more than that?

Your stories have inspired me, I guess. Don't know why I'm feeling so creative tonight. But you're right. There is another little monster in the house. I'll have to give him equal time.

Now, this is hysterical. Had I been present I would have been laughing so hard I wouldn't have been able to help you catch him. Cats are just so funny sometimes! Great poetic limerick!

It's uncanny, isn't it? We can't hide anything from our brilliant cats! Funny verse, Deb.

Dear Everybody,

Thanks for all your kind words. If I put a smile on your face (or maybe a little laugh), then my goal was accomplished. I really enjoy everyone here on this site. This was a "thank you" of sorts. I like to make people laugh, because it brightens their day. Biggest kudos of all go to Anne for this fantastic web site!

Dear Deb,

God has blessed you so much.

I like the poem. I just have to add I really do think they know. I have a friend who's cat got out the morning she was taking him to the vet to be neutered. She had to reschedule the appointment.

Thank you so much, I really needed a chuckle since I have just recently composed myself from crying from anger and frustration

Deb what an amazing poem. I love it. That will be Rocky soon as he will be off to the vet with Gabby to be fixed up.
