The Scratching Post I Wish We Had

Aug 16, 2007 by

One year ago, a happy birth
Gave us a kitten, full of mirth.
The little kitten had some claws;
Our house of wood gave me a pause…

I’ll buy a scratching post, I said.
He: I’ll build you one instead.
A playful masterpiece for cats,
With tunnels, stairs, wood posts and flats.

Alas, by now it’s been a year.
And kitten claws have made it clear.
The easy chair is wearing thin,
The wood furniture has lost its skin.

Where, oh where is the promised post?
Of the finished product I’d like to boast.
A purchase I think I’ll now pursue.
Then when he finishes… I’ll have two!

    “Honey, dear, will you install a towel rack?”
    “Yes, dear.”
    Two days later: “Honey, dear, when wil you install a new towel rack?”
    “Soon, dear.”
    Three days later: “Honey, dear, do you want me to install the new towel rack?”
    Met with the sound of the drill and a new towel rack!
