Heading Animal Poems Listening Page

Don’t call your puss-cat “Mouse Catcher”

    Or other names like that.

Give lots of thought when you select

   The right name for your cat.


The she-cats like congenial names

    Like Pussikins or Pax

Whilst  tomcats like the stronger names

    Of Oliver or Max.


Well, Tiger, Bella, Coco, Tom  

     Are names that head the list -

But Marmaduke and Kimberley

   Are  names you may have  missed.


Then, there again, I rather think

    Cats do not care a damn

And pussy’s happy being called

     Priscilla, Boots or Sam.


Whatever name you call your cat

    Will give him cause to purr,

But “Come along, it’s dinner-time,”

   Are words that cats prefer.
