|Cats life is mostly easy
By, R K Hamner
|Well, the ole woman just got
back from her morning walk. As usual she shut the gate
when she left sos I couldnt foller her.
Course she let that son of hers go along. I
heard em talkin when they come back about that
purty grey cat they saw.
Cal was a prancin around when they got back and a bragging an a waggin her tail cause she an that cat got acquainted. Seems as how that dog gets to do all thu fun stuff. Course she has to wear one of them collers around her neck and part of the time she stays tied up to one of them straps that keeps her from chasin off. Cal an me showed up on the place about the same time. It was providential I guess but sometimes I get sorta jealous of thet dog. She gets to travel all over the place-tu Texas an back just a setin an a ridin in thu car and a lookin at thu scenery.
All I ever get to do is go down there tu Hall Summit onest a year to see that feler who sticks me with one uv them sharp needles. An I have to ride down there in a cage. Its a now and then occasion when I have to ride up to Dazzzle Dog to stay a while but I do get some socializing in up there with the rest of them cats and dogs.
When alls said and done, I guess Id prefer to be me than that dog Cal. Freedom wise, I guess Im better off. I stay outside most nights and sleep inside in the daytime when its hot and cold most days.
Them whipper wills sings the purtiest songs at night. Sometimes I sing along with em. Them wild hogs are a rootin around an talkin about what to do to keep from gettin in one uv them hog traps.
All I have to do to go, join my friends, and catch a rat or two, is just climb out over thu fence. I climb back in come daylight and then after eatin a bowl of Meow Mix, just lay up somewhere and sleep.
