Tabby tom kitten
Orange bundle of mischief,
Climbing on cupboards
To rouse the sleeping household,
Then sleeping through the daytime.

Garbage can moocher
Furry young tight-rope walker,
Balancing on high
In hope of finding morsels,
Of sweet taste treats left behind.

Tiny scavenger
Grown up to be a tiger,
Regal in his way
Mown down in his second year,
By a car that did not stop.

THE END
