A Poem for My Cat

The name of my cat is Ms. Callixto
Each day I wrap her like a burrito
I know she hates it...It makes her loco
Rub her belly? It's a total no-no....

My little Callixto won't touch a mouse...
She just spends time sleeping inside the house...
She judges me for not having a spouse...
In fairness, she behaves at the steakhouse.

Then my little angel fell very ill...
Wouldn't even eat a salmon with dill...
Now we won't be growing old together.
But in my heart she will live forever...

Thanks Ms. Verlie. When I saw her, I just knew the name should be Callixto. Really miss those eyes of her that seem to judge my life choices... :)

I wish there was a happy ending. Love this ode to your charming Ms. Callixto. Fun rhyme, great photos that really show her spirit.
