A Cat Named Sam
was a big cat named Sam
owner fed him steak and lamb,
had it easy you might say
That is, until one fine day,
new cat came to stay.
was outraged to say the least,
would not share his home with this beast!
So he arched his back, expanded his size,
stared the intruder right in the eyes.
bared his fangs, he howled and hissed
this time Sam was really miffed.
growl was fierce; his eyes grew bigger.
of retreating, much to Samís dismay,
stretched and yawned in her cute little way.
Her big blue eyes were calm and serene,
well suddenly Sam didnít feel so mean.
heart was thumping; his legs were weak,
came closer; now they were cheek to cheek.
Sam began to purr just for her,
they are happy together, never more to part,
see Sam is just a pussycat at heart!
end of a catís tale.
