Kittums the Cat
Believes that Millie the Hound
Is his Mom!
Adopted as a wee two-week old kitten
From the local food mart
None of his unusual upbringing
Has given him qualms?
I even nicknamed him Kee-yahm!
He has always returned home to our abode
Known for its loving care
Exhibiting his fondness for the home
With a preternatural calm
Perhaps he was too young departed
Of his beloved fam’
To miss his brethren
And his Dearest Dam!
Thankfully he does not seem in any way impaired
Cats are solitary in their ways
Cryptically Kittums has never acquired
The environmental alley-cat taste of the strays
As a strong independent-minded cat
He does things his way
Looks like he is here to stay!
Purring all the way
As he brushes his body and wagging tail
On Millie The Hound’s face
And mine legs!
Picking me up from the dregs
With a specious smile and devoted gaze
Ready in a flash!
To scratch and claw away any intruder!
Who attempts to bring into his comfortable world
