Ninja Kitty Alarm Clock

Kitty perks,
jerks,
and attacks my toes.

Kitty frisks,
whisks,
and tickles my nose.

Kitty creeps,
leaps,
as I try to doze.

"I guess it's time to get up..."

*Purrrrrrrrr....*

This seems to be the week for felines, Bridget. Nice action in the poem, and ending!

Michelle Heidenrich Barnes said...

Love this playful poem, Bridget! (I can so easily see it in a children's magazine-- you should make sure to submit it.)

Diane Mayr said...

Yep, that's the way it is when you live with a cat! Fun, poem!

Margaret Simon said...

Funny poem about your alarm clock cat. My cat is a little more subtle, but she always wakes up with me. We stretch and chat, a nice way to greet the morning.

Bridget Magee said...

I know, Linda, what a coincidence! Ninja kitties are full of action...except when they aren't. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Michelle! Thanks for the encouragement about subbing it. I think because it is on my blog it would be precluded because it is now considered "previously published". =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Diane! So I've heard...I actually have a crazy dog. This is what I would think would happen if a kitty woke me up. Not sure I could live with the toe attacks. =)

Bridget Magee said...

If I had a cat, I'd want one like yours, Margaret! A "stretch and a chat" is a great way to greet the morning for any creature. =)

Liz Steinglass said...

That's just like a kitty! I think these Poetry Friday coincidences happen a lot!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Liz! I love coincidences and serendipity! =)

Donna Smith said...

Yup! It's all about the cats today. I have a couple of poems, too. There is nothing like having a playful cat trying to capture your feet under the covers. One of our cats used to very gently tap his declawed paw on our closed eyelids to wake us up!

Mary Lee said...

Very fun! Lucky for me, our cat is very much my husband's buddy, so he's the one who gets the tap-tap wake up calls!

Bridget Magee said...

Paws on you eyelids, Donna??? Wow, thank goodness they were declawed. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Mary Lee! I don't know if I could handle any of these wake calls for reals. My crazy dog sleeps in another room. =)

Sweet poem but that kind of kitty alarm would freak me out. I'm not really a cat person... I seem to bring out the wildness of cats--their secret ambitions of being one of the big cats.

jama said...

Sweet, fun and playful -- so "cat-like" and purrrfect. :)

Keri said...

The perfect example of "write what you know" -- your fondness for your ninja kitty shines through.

Bridget Magee said...

I'm with you, Violet, I'm not a cat person either. And cats seem to sense this... =)

Bridget Magee said...

Ah, thanks, Jama! I guess I could add a belated Happy Mew Year to keep with the theme. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Keri, but the funny thing is I don't have a ninja kitty or any kitty for that matter. I just hear stories from my kitty loving friends. =)
