SidevieW wants us to bring Perspective into perspective:
Should you have the honour that
You are servant to a cat
Do attend devotedly
To each feline he or she.
Pander to the every whim
Of the kitty her or him;
That their wish is your command
Is what quickly should be larned.
Want inside? Then do be quick
Opening; if they then lick,
In a pause to do their paws,
For impatience, find no cause.
Do not ask why they’ve not tried
Nearby window, open wide,
Just accept this is the way
They have chosen for today.
If they’re wanting to be fed,
Must be now – take that as read!
As a cat-slave, you should see
It must have priority!
And, if they don’t like the taste,
Never mind about the waste.
Find the food, for him or her,
At that moment they pre-fur.
Many beds down for them lay;
Many games to aid their play;
Other pets should not intrude –
Playing with them’s seen as rude!
Should a stroking be desired
They will tell you when they’re tired:
Do not stop until they say,
‘That’s enough for current day.’
Should they do a foolish act,
Showing mirth would not be tact;
Something clever? Then your praise
Fulsomely the roof should raise.
Something you must always do
Is forget your point of view,
Which to nothing much amounts –
Their purr-spective is what counts!
