Tom Cat noble in the Sun

A Cat is Always Noble


My Cat he keeps me company

as I sit in the Winter Sun,

He purrs, he rolls, he stretches,

delighting in this Fun.

Then indulges in a Dust-bath,

with the greatest Dignity.

(For a Cat is always Noble,

on a Throne or in a Tree.)

At first a Feral, he moved in,

when with his stray-cat eyes he saw,

an invisible Sign, apparently written,

and hung upon the door, (it read);

“Familiar and Companion Wanted,

Please apply within!

Generous Feedings! Flexible Hours!

Starts as soon as you begin!”

Now the only thing that disturbs his peace

and equan-imity,

is still the occasional manifestation,

of certain cantankerous fleas.

But even these he despatches,

with a sense of Oblige Noblesse,

and woe to the Rodent or Rat he detects

and devours with consumate ease!
