Just a purrfect day – (feline sonnet)

by - Mr. Darcy   Jun 4, 2018

Inside I have an urgent need to hug. . .

She knows this time I shouldn’t need to ask.

I recall a time upon the fire rug;

I moved straight in to carry out the task:

Kneeling down, my hands went in to cuddle -

Alarmed she spat, her claws, a frenzied wheel.

I pursued, not wanted to be fuddled;

We both howled out, our pain most very real.

- This year, I armed myself with fishy charms.

- This year would not become another mess.

A treat received, she leapt into my arms.

Embraced, we knew, our love, had beat this test.


On June the fourth, it’s hug a cat this day -

It’s very hard, that’s all I’ve got to say.

    The title really reminds me of a Pokémon episode titled 'The Purrfect Hero'. Haha. Anyways, this is lovely and a great tribute to all the cats out there. <3
