I know what you’re thinking, I’ve heard it before . . .
why would a feline go in for such drawer?
— if you really must know, the facts are as follows
if she leaves me at home, there’ll be 15 dead swallows.
And that’s not a problem for my purring gullet,
but for her, it’s the equal of one silver bullet.
So here I ride shotgun, tucked away in this purse.
But don’t call the hotline, there are problems far worse.
For later she’ll stroke me and hand feed me tuna.
Which makes me, among pets, quite the Kitten Kahuna
