Felix, the long tailed cat,
was suave and debonaire,
he had a custom collar,
and glossy, smooth black hair.
Felix was a favorite
at the Old Folks Home,
where he was lavished snacks,
and unlimited places to roam.
Felix loved the attention
and petting that he got
from the appreciative residents
who liked this cat a lot.
But, there was a certain room
where Felix walked with care;
it was the sewing room
filled with rocking chairs!
| WHOA FELIX, watch out fer them thar' rockin' chairs boy. HA Loved this little diddy.|
We had a Siamese who had a big kink, near the tip of his tail.
There is a sad story that goes with my poor "SAM". my sweet little boy.

|| Posted on 2008-06-24 00:00:00 | by Epiphany | [ Reply to This ] || Ah i love that ending !! partially cause it reminds me of my cat - who's mostly black - laying in the dark (covering his white belly) and somehow still getting insulted if anyone steps on his tail, yeesh. But secondly cause it also reminds me (sorry for always reminiscing on your poems hehe) of this cat that decided to live in a old folks home over here, he was lovely but has this annoyingly uncanny trick of always spending the night sleeping on someone's bed if they were going to die. It was crazy cause he was accurate, he kept them company for the night if they were going to die the next day. cats really are amazing. Thanks for the poem, keep in touch xx|

Yeah a question for you,
Who is a poet in your own words because you have some people on this site who are discriminating against others even when they are not in the right frame of mind to handle criticism. Thanks alot

I am a HUGE cat Lover
I have 2 of them Dennis The Menace a 25 pound Orange tabby and Bootsy who is a perfect tuxedo cat
They are my Best Friends in the World bar none and I can honestly say they have both saved my life many times just by the Love they give
You captured this write very well and I Loved how you showed a cat can be the perfect companion to the elderly in fact did you know that most senior homes will allow a cat because of that but not a dog
I read this to my Mom as well because she is a Cat Lover and she Loved this as well
Always a Pleasure to read your writes Ron
Thank You for sharing this

I always love your cat poems, Ron, and this one gave me a big smile. :-) Sharon||| Posted on 2008-06-10 00:00:00 | by Peggy Paris | [ Reply to This ] || I can tell he's been in that room only once, |
and will never darken that doorway again.
As always this superbly written.
I'd like to see what you could do with a
The Poor Man's Poet
P.S. I am working on a new piece
so let ask you this: in your own words
(What is a Poet)

There's nothing more nervous than a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs!
Thanks for sharing another purrfectly charming cat tale!
