We have cats,
five at that,
they live in our house
with a toy mouse.
They keep us going,
they keep us alive,
that is why
we have five.
Bramley Apples is our first,
she can run with a burst.
All black and can attack,
three single strands of white hair
and her green eyes have a hypnotic stare.
Next in line is our little swine,
Branston Pickles is his name,
he keeps all the girls on their game.
Tabby and white is his fur
and he has a lovely purr.
Then comes Ginger Nut,
her bell-bell is the best;
full of fur, it beats the rest.
She sleeps in the bathroom within the towels,
then when it’s dark she’s on the prowl.
Then the twins, Thelma and Louise;
and believe me they are a tease.
Thelma is a tabby and white,
she always jumps out and gives me a fright.
Louise is a black and white,
she can scratch and she can bite;
but only in play I must add,
and she never makes us sad.
Our furry family give us joy;
four girls and a boy.
