MY WIFE WANTS A CAT
Her husband soon will be working
Evenings–she’ll feel lonely…
She wants to get a kitty
To keep her company.
In theory there’s no problem,
But infections we tend to get…
Kitty front paws must declaw
Or the answer is “nyet.”
Suggested renting our neighbor’s
“Kizzy Kat” for a while…
The wife wasn’t enthusiastic,
She wants her own feline child.
I really can’t say I blame her
For I miss a kitty cat too…
At least we’ve begun discussions
Till we decide what to do.
No no no – please don’t declaw. They snip off the toe at the first knuckle.
When we got Pickles and Hillary as kittens, I played with their paws every night (this little piggie, etc.) until they got used to me fiddling with their paws. Now I can trim their nails without them freaking out. They can still be squirmy, but they put up with it.
Lots of scratching posts keep them from the furniture.
SO THAT’S HOW YOU DO IT ! ;0) Gotta remember that, for sure!
Awww update us if you do get a kitty 🙂
Sure will…! Such momentous occasions deserve recognition in poetry. 😀
