Keep Your Paws off my Meatballs

I'm a caregiver and an artist. I received high honors in creative writing, fine arts, and sculpture at Montserrat College of Art.

Keep Your Paws off my Meatballs

Keep Your Paws off my Meatballs

Keep Your Paws off my Meatballs

I found my self shouting a funny thing today when I look over and saw my cat at play.

That darned cat, she steals like a big fat rat.

She sneaky you see.

She'll creep up real slow and slide in for the kill. She's quiet and moves as if she was still.

She will take the hat right off your head, runaway, and hide under the bed.

Oh yes, this cat is a sneaky one. She thinks she so cute while having her fun.

Today was the day when that cat went too far. She jumped onto the table, knocked over a jar.

She snuck into the kitchen when I was cooking. The cat knew that I wouldn't be looking.

When my back was turned, the cat reached out. Its paws on my balls, so I scream and I shout.

"Hey! Get your paws off my meatballs!"

Thanks, for the comments Shauna. It's true she is being rather polite about her sneakiness. My mom's dog, on the other hand, would have gobbled up every bit of food before you could say "boo!". Haha.

Too funny! I have cats, so I can relate. I notice she's being very polite about her theft and using her paws instead of jumping in mouth first. You gotta give her that, Dad!

Our dogs hates our neighbors cat.

No idea why

I hope you have a fantastic day!
