I Could Pee On This
And Other Poems by Cats
Chronicle Books, 2012
This book was reviewed earlier this year by Ellen over at 15 and Meowing, which is how we found out about it. And I am so glad we did! It is so funny!! OMC – it is as if the author was taking my thoughts right out of my head and typing them! The author states in his introduction that after the reader finishes, he hopes “you’ll not only completely understand everything your cat thinks and does but even applaud him for it.” [!] The poems are short and funny so even if you don’t like poetry or ‘don’t get it’ you’ll be able to get this poetry – that is if you have a cat or love someone who does!! If you’re exclusively a dog person, you’ll be, like, wha??????? and you won’t enjoy it, or at least not as much.
You know I have to share 2 of my favorites with you. I MOL’d so much while reading them!!!
Did You Know
Did you know?
Did you see?
Did you count?
How many times
I had to smack that moth
On your forehead
With my paw?
He’s dead now, though
One more smack
I’m sorry I tripped you in the hall
I’m sorry I tripped you in the den
I’m sorry I tripped you in the bedroom
I’m sorry I tripped you in the kitchen
I’m sorry I tripped you in the attic
I’m sorry I tripped you in the basement
I’m sorry I tripped you out the door
I’m sorry I tripped you on hard cement
But some men paid me five grand to kill you
Alright, I have to share just one more – my absolute favorite!!!
That Top Shelf
I think I can jump to that top shelf
I want to jump to that top shelf
I know I can jump to that top shelf
I am jumping to that top shelf
I missed that top shelf by a good six feet
And now everything is on the floor
And I’m left wondering
Why people even bother buying china
If it breaks so easily
Rating:– we want this book in our library!!
