by Janet Blue on October 20, 2015





I’m a tuxie cat with incessant demands,
But I am way too cute to reprimand.
I prey on my humans’ very last nerves
Until I get the tummy rubs I deserve.
They claim that I’m a great big pest,
But I know they think that I’m the best
Of all the cats who live in our house
No matter how much and loudly they grouse.
So I’ll keep on begging for their attention
To get another petting and loving session.
And if you need coaching to get this too,
Just send a note to me…Mauricio Blue.

You must be related somehow to Pipo, MOL! He’s always begging fur belly rubs and all the attention he can get!

You are a sweetie, Mauricio, yes, you are; and we know you know it too, MOL!

Mauricio, you have a tummy that looks very pettable and an enticing look to go with it.

MOL! What a great poem, Mau. The mom says if you substituted tabby for tuxie, this poem coulda been about me too! 😀 ~Wally

You are the king, Mauricio!!! All of us kitties could take a note from you! Mom and Dad say that we are all pests… but hey, we always get what we want, so we must be doing something right, right? 😉
Sampy sends a kiss for every tummy rub every given to a kitty, and we all send lots of love and hugs!

Squeeeeeel! You have the most adorable tummy ever. M wants to give it a big smooch! You are a good poet too.

Sammy October 20, 2015 at 7:06 am

Super duper poem Mau…….and I think (no – I KNOW!) that Allie would agree with the cute part….!! I hope all of us get tummy rubs and hugs when we need them the most – giving our humans “THE LOOK” usually works pretty well for all of us!

Hugs, Sammy
