Me! Ow! Claws scratch!Its fur is mat-like thatch.A furball rumbles up.From a cat, but not a pup.Meow, the feline purrsTo feline cherishersWho love such critters dear,While others think it queer.Me! Ow! Teeth might bite,If one causes cat-ish fright.If one steps upon a tail,One hears that feline wail!Whiskers neath those fluffy earsAre part of why the cat endears.
