(Tune: “Animal Crackers in My Soup,” as sung by Shirley Temple)

White shirt fronts

Behind window screens,

Cats looking out

On burgeoning greens…

Doggies can walk

Their owners out,

Cats without leashes

Not put out.

A.C. feels good

To kitty fur,

Means less shedding

And hairy stir…

Dogs have owners

To comb out

Any snarls

In a hairy coat!

Fish and parrots

What are they,

Rarely more than

Fine display….

Cats can purr

And doggies yap,

Having a friend is

A good life capped!
