Tails of Two Pearl-Amber-lating Kitties


Amber and Pearl … or is it Pearl and Amber? Well, the kids can tell them apart at a glance.

Two kitty-poozies one sunny day
Cut short their snoozies and went to play,
Both climbed a tree, then they climbed  a wall;
There was no way they were going to fall,
For both were sure-footed; cling-clawed as well;
And full of confidence, you could tell.

Now, when with climbing the two were done,
They shot off to find some other fun,
And teased the doggies on either side
But near to places where they could hide;
The dogs were all big and were not amused;
They do not like being thus abused.


Then monkeys came, and the kitty-poos
Decided that these were not good news,
So they scooted off, indoors to stay,
Till dogs moved the troop off on its way,
Then went out to pond to snatch a few fish:
Too small, but the sport is what they wish.


This made them think it was time for food,
So got a human in the right mood
By mews and rubbing against a leg
Which is not to say they tried to beg,
But this is a kitty-cats tactful way
To indicate, Feed us promptly, pray!

Well, after munch-crunch and drinkie-lap,
They thought it time for another nap;
One on pillow, the other on rug,
With snuggly teddy-bears there to hug;
To dream with whiskery-twitches, before
Both jumped up and went to play some more.

    ‘A Child’s Garden of Verses’ and ‘Dr Dolittle’ spring to mind. Do you read your poetry to your granddaughters?

    I love it and they are adorable. They look like my Milo and Odis. I can tell them apart instantly but Ron has trouble sometimes. Milo has a broad face and Odis has a small pinched face. Thanks for a fun post. Hugs
