Feral Cats

Feral Cats (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The cats know
There are places
They will not go

It’s feline grace
To so completely
Know their space

The cats sense
All the losses and
The expense

If you call upon
Their sweetest care
They are long gone

The cats are
Not what they seem
They’re a dark star

Call them any name
They’ll ignore you
Just the very same

The cats know
There are places
They will not go

If you go there
They’d not tell you that
You should beware

If you go there
And you’re lost to all
They will not care

  1. Definitely has the feel of a nursery rhyme.

    • Thanks, it was meant to – the rhyme is probably not consistent enough to totally work as that form, but it was just a fun concept to write so I went with it anyway. 🙂

  2. Lovely Helen I think you have captured cats very well.

  3. Oh Sis, I missed your writing while gone!! Big hugs!

  4. Something to mull on… Interesting portrayal of cats. 🙂

  5. Malcolm Miller says:

    Cats are not ‘just animals’, they are ‘Cat People’.

  6. If I want my cat to come, I have to pretend to ignore her. 🙂

  7. They are in a world of their own, sorry to say I prefer dogs, but you captured them well Helen.

  8. I love that picture Helen and you’ve really captured the feline mystique. I agree with the nursery rhyme. I have always had strange cats, cats that are not really cat-like. I had a cat named Garfield he had such a beautiful soul when I first got him we’d watch cartoons together I remember I spilled a glass of water on him he looked at me funny but forgave me right away.
