Cat Poetry: Boxes By Teresa Harrison-Best

Periodically we feature cat poetry from Teresa Harrison-Best.  In this latest cat poem, Teresa writes about the virtue of boxes from a cat’s point of view.  cat poetryCheck it out:

I just love to sit in boxes, any kind will do.
The bigger ones are wonderful, but little ones are too.
I never will discriminate in brand, or make, or name.
I’ll squeeze myself inside each one, I treat them all the same.
The posh ones are more padded, so comfort is assured.
Little ones offer more challenges, which mustn’t be ignored.
To resist a box and not squeeze in, is impossible for a cat.
The temptation of a cardboard lure must put paid to that.
So next time you get a hamper from a famous London store,
Or even a box from Postie left by the pantry door,
don’t throw it in the rubbish bin, or chuck it on the fire.
Leave it for your local cats, of it they will not tire.
