Christmas Cat Poem Time!

This is totally impossible to do. Well, not quite because I just did it but not very well..er badly. I asked myself, “what could I write about on Christmas Day when I woke up?”. It had to be a bit of fun and it had to be bright and white. Ah, I’ll write a poem….

White Cat In Snow

Five minutes later….Oh no, I won’t write a poem I’ll do something else. As you probably know, writing a poem, even a bad one, is not easy.

I set myself a maximum of about 15 lines to limit the amount pain I had to endure in writing it 😉

She looked lazily out of the frosty window
It was a beautiful, crisp and even scene
She looked for a glimmer of bird activity
That would brighten up her moody mien
“Alaska” was a chubby white purebred mix
She was proud to be a rescue cat
Who was the best at doing tremendous tricks
“She’s like a dog” her humans kept saying
“No, I’m not” Alaska thought
As she lay quietly on her warmed up mat
I’m just a cat, a very good cat
Who likes the snow at Christmas time
Who likes to play when the weather is fine
To be out, to mess up that crisply even scene
My human will take a picture; well, he might
I look great in the snow. It’s white on white

In good old England, this morning, as I wrote the poem, there was thunder and lighting. It has been raining most of the night. Not a glimmer of a hope for even a single flake of the white stuff….Happy Christmas.

Christmas Cat Poem Time! — 17 Comments

  1. MERRY CHRISTMAS MICHAEL. Is the Weather chill in London? As for me , had an excellent Christmas eve In Mumbai and, spending the afternoon sipping “Smirnoff” with my cats Matahari and Matata lazying in the house and parakeet “Mittoo’ shrieking at times.Is this living the ultimate Cat life.?Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.

  2. We have 18 degrees and sun, it’s very strange indeed. Merry Christmas. Great poem by the way Michael. Some parts are excellent even. You are alot braver than I will ever be!

    • Two things (a) I envy your weather. It is horrendous here. No surprise. Thunder and lighting etc. Damp and so on..(b) I’m and old enough not to care about making a fool of myself 😉

  3. Merry Christmas to all, both human and none. Not bad for a few minutes work, Michael. It took me that long to come up with a second verse to the Soft Kitty song they sing on ‘The Big Bang Theory’ tv show here in the states. It was some promotion of some sort I found.

    Did you all hear about this: Feline Genetics DNA testing. For $120 US, you can determine if your pure breed truly is a pure bred. Here is a link to the article:

    And here is a link to the lab that does it:

  4. Hi Michael,

    Congratulations on being brave enough to write a poem and post it online. Not everyone would have the courage.

    The two things I like best about it is it’s appropriate for the picture you’ve provided and it mentions rescue cats. I don’t recall seeing a poem that mentions rescue cats before.

    Happy Christmas to you and your cats. Happy Christmas to all cat lovers.

    =^..^= Hairless Cat Girl =^..^=

    • Thanks Liz. I didn’t think to much about what to say, so I guess the rescue cats are in my heart and mind. They are the cats that need us and we owe them a home. Thanks for saying I am brave. Happy Christmas to you too. The rain has just stopped in London, England. Hurrah 😉

  5. Great poem Michael
    It’s rained on and off here too for most of the day but no thunder or lightning, you can keep that down South lol
    HAPPY CHRISTMAS everyone

      • Michael:
        I share my gloom with you, although we live in “sunny” SE Arizona, had a great surprise early this am, about 7″ of snow & temp dropped to 17f. Very cold & pathetic.
        Oh! well this too shall pass !
