Cat One pretends to be a friend,
The shorthairs number two thru ten.
Their nine kittens-- a dividend!
Plus Five Bengals, with spots of yellow,
Followed by four Ginger fellows.
A burly Tabby, Bobtail Cat--
He is the cat that killed the rat.
As their meowing tenor grows and climbs,
All voice their choice-- IT’S DINNER TIME!!
Yes, too many cats. That’s 29!
