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

Each morning

Before vittles

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
