Christmas Cat

Some Christmas humor for you. Stitches – the cat we can never forget. And she has been painted and poetry written about her. Very inspirational but quite a clown.

There was one Christmas that is seared into my memory. Early morning and we are preparing to join family when this cat starts yowling….

Stitches my cat

Was found with a mat

In a place on her coat where the kitty cat sat.

 —

She meowed and she cried,

And she poked at my side,

So I knew I must try to help her sore hide.

 —

I brushed her hair,

But the knot was still there,

So we searched for scissors to cut the spot bare.

 —

Sheri started to snip,

And she made a small clip,

But Stitches screamed out and tried a quick nip!

 —

It became very clear,

Though the thought was not dear,

That a vet was the one who could help her poor rear.

 —

So a battle we waged,

To get her encaged,

And that’s hard to do when a cat is enraged.

 —

We drove with the cat,

To the vet and we sat

And waited until she removed the large mat.

 —

The cat was now quiet,

But the bill was a riot,

For the price that I paid, I could’ve lived at the Hyatt.

 —

That’s the end of my tale,

It all ended well.

Do you want a nice kitty, I have one for sale.

That was one expensive vet trip, but it was also strange – driving through the Castleton mall area and not a soul in sight. Felt apocalyptic!

  1. Lovely….left a message for you on the page, but not sure if you would get it. this poem could be in book form for children…my granddaughter would love it. You are so gifted. Love you Sheri. PS … In AZ until the 18th. My son-in-law passed away and had funeral on the 29th. All my children were able to be here….so blessed. Strange way to start the new year. Lost my best friend the beginning of the month. But God’s grace is sufficient….So thankful for the prayers that have been covering us and being answered.~~~ Love, alethea
