Bad Catitudes

Fake mouse, dancing toys
mewing sounds. I am convinced
You are a moron!

Ha! You call that thing
a cat carrier. I call
these, my claws of death.

You never pet me.
Maybe I’ll sleep on your face.
That will wake you up.

My rule for today:
touch me and I shred your hand.
New rules will follow.
Seeking solitude
I got locked in a closet
For once, I need you.
