I see the lil’ cat,
It looks pretty fat.

A smoky black coat,
Riddled with dirty black spots.

Ears alert,
Whiskers a-twitching,
Black furry belly,
My fingers are a-twitching.

It looked down at me,
Ready to pounce.
I looked up at it,
Challenging its stance.

A muffled call from faraway,
A quick glance to the left,
A mat of furry black fur flying at my face!

Stupid cat!
