Hey you! Hi there, hello! What’s your name? Mine is Will-oo Now you’re here and I have your attention Let me tell you a story I simply must mention I was born on a farm, but it wasn’t to be I was put up for adoption, which was safer for me
In this temporary home I made a new friend Knowing my stay here would someday end So until then I decided to kick back and relax Manipulating the humans, to the max I was on top of our cage, sleeping on my mate, Enjoying the life, which I thought was just great When one day, 6ft above the floor Where I was staying safe, away from the door Two strangers had arrived; they came for me I was awoken from my slumber on a cat called Wolf-e They weren’t dogs or cats but people see? Introducing themselves were Dad and Mum-ee
I knew before them that they’d take me home And when I got there I realised I wasn’t alone A new brother and sister were waiting for me Don’t know what they look like cause I’m blind you see My big bro, was a Rascal by name and nature I thought he was quite, an interesting creature And get this, it’s no joke When Misty vanishes just like smoke
I love to sit, on a warm lap Closing my eyes, drifting into a nap Mum tickles my head, just behind my ear Feeling safe, I have nothing to fear My Dad has a head, which I love to lick Using a tongue with bristles ever so thick One day I even followed him up a ladder Couldn’t understand why he was getting madder Turns out he was stuck up in the attic With me at the top he got into a panic A solution was found and this problem got solved You wouldn’t believe what this involved! And after this, dad was a lot more cautious He kept a closer eye on each and all of us
We have our own room, which is shared With places to hide if I feel scared After these events my true personality came out I get can my own way when loudly I shout But that’s ok because I am blind as a bat Simba I’m now called and I’m King Cat!
Then one day Mum and Dad went out I cried for them and we began to shout For they had gone to that same place From where we first met, face to face And when they came back they were not alone As they had brought another cat into my royal home! She was small and black and as feisty as can be We soon realised she was mad as a nutty Cook-ie!
Amid this expansion I’m sure you can see That it took us awhile to feel like a fam-il-ee With happiness reigning entirely in the house We were playing our favourite game of cat and mouse Then one day our parents went out again We don’t want this, it’s a total pain!
And from the CPA they came back With something tiny coloured white and black For home they brought the smallest kitten And after a while we were totally smitten Soon we realised what was in store For this small kitten had a purr like a roar Then one day, he felled dad like a tree Watched it happen we all did see “Tttiiimmmbbbeeerrr” we laughed as dad fell in the kitchen “You called?” whispered this newest addition Dad must’ve heard us cause shortly thereafter He changed the kittens name from ‘Timmy’ to ‘Tim-ber’ This cat said, “I can be quiet as a mouse, and quite sneaky” “I don’t cause all the mischief, yet they always blame me!”
Oh hey, sorry friend, look at the time The hour is late; it must be near nine, For now this tail I must briefly conclude So good day and goodnight, see ya later dude!
