You Can't Teach An Old Cat Any Tricks

I wish I could teach
My cat just one trick
Like dribbling a ball
Or fetching a stick

Are Cats too clever
(or maybe aloof)
For tricks? To vote yes,
Meow; to vote no, woof.

About the Poem

Dog owners think dogs are clever because they can be trained, but cat lovers know that cats are even cleverer because they can be, but won't.
