Cushion-Comfy Cat

This is the cat from Bee Haven Acres! Her owner writes of the bitter winter weather but adds a photograph of the cat under an Infra Red Lamp! Talk about smug!

I'm Ella Bella with my Infra-Red!
It's a lovely warmth that streams from overhead.
The People bought it for me
To prove that they adore me,
And it's here I like to make my cosy bed.
The cows are blowing clouds of winter steam;
And the horses are continuing the theme.
The dogs are wearing coats
Which reach from tails to throats,
And I just sit here pleasantly and dream.
I'm sometimes asked to share this special lamp,
If the night is really miserably damp,
But I feel it's not fair!
Royalty doesn't share!
And shifting-up a bit gives me the cramp!
The People are rugged-up from head to toe.
There are icicles wherever they may go!
All that's for Him and Her;
I just bide my time and purr,
Even though we find we're inches deep in snow!
Some creatures try to get above their station;
Pet dogs are just a poor cheap imitation.
So things like Infra-Red
Are just for the well-bred.
After all, we cats are Lords of all Creation!

A silly farm joke here:

See tomorrow's blog for something I never knew about cranberries!

I loved that! It was so good I had to read it to my husband (who doesn't even like poetry) and even he agreed that it was great!
