Pros And Cons For Becoming A Cat Owner

I was told I should buy a cat
“Why on earth would I do that?”
“They’re good company” they say
“And they keep the mice away”
Well eventually they convinced me
And I admit its good company
As to the expelling from my house
Of every type and size of mouse
They are a great disappointment
And their failure is evident
It is they who bring in a mouse
Into the comfort of my house
As a toy with which they play
But they let the toy get away
Now the mouse is here to stay

Better Out Than In

What you have to understand as a cat owner is that it brings you little furry or feathered present as a sign of affection. Surely a house mouse is a small price to pay for such devotion.
