This challenge is simply to write a poem about anything to do with cats. It can be any sort of style, as long or short as you want, and write as many as you wish. I encourage you to use BBcodes to make your poem look pretty.

If you have a cat for a pet, feel free to write a poem about his/her personality, or perhaps a habit of theirs that annoys you, if not makes you smile. I'd enjoy seeing a picture of them included with the poem, too!

I'll even write a poem dedicated to my own kitty cat in a separate post. I want to see some other members' poems before I do that, though. ;3

Mynona is a kitty
and she isn't very smart.
I'd say it was a pity
but her fur is fashion art.

If you throw a tiny mouse
she'll run and fetch it fast.
She'll be the terror of your house
and no curtain will ever last.

I really love my furry beast,
she's as soft as a cat can be.
I couldn't hate her in the least,
she is the right cat for me!

Cat's grace.

Silent, supple, dodging through the rain
long furred legs stretch out to find
precarious footholds on the roof,
Or in the basement, amongst the shelves.

Yellow eyes flare up
the only thing to see
Where the cat once was
There is nothing now.

Until you find it,
spread out near the hearth
hiding all the signs
of cat's grace.



(S'not much...but I thought I should give it a shot.)

Ember is a dorky cat
her antics are the best
She likes sleeping on the bathroom mat
which makes her quite a pest

She mewls everyday
for her bowl of Fancy Feast
This feline always gets her way
else she turns into a beast

I'm scarred from head to toe
because of her evil nails
Even when I tell her "NO!"
resisting bloodshed fails

I call this cat my daughter
I know that's very strange
She even has a loving Father
who hopes she'll never change

Ember only wants to play
At night, she cuddles me
All I have to say
is my cat is very silly

You somehow managed to double post in a single post, I think...unless the repetition was intentional?

Fantasy, Horror and Sci-fi. I'll try basically anything though. I also love strange and unusual RP genre concepts. Different is good!
The moon lit marauder
Awaken at dusk
Stalking with claws in the night

Eye's glowing yellow
Tail kept tucked
Waiting for the time to strike

By dawns early light
Shes captured her kill
teeth clenched, it fell to her bite


Dedicated to my cat KoKo, who hunts at night and leaves me dead creatures in the morning.

Snowball


From the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail,
My Snowball is as black as night,
Except for a few minor details:

His belly has patches of white.

White cat fur shining
Eyes so bright full of wonder
Paws silent as death

My attempt for a haiku...

Fantasy, Modern, Magical, Romance, I'm open to almost anything. Just feel free to ask. If I'm not comfortable with it, I will calmly talk about it. Otherwise, I'm all over the spectrum.
When you think that I'm just cute,
I'm actually ordering you,
To do whatever I want,
As soon as you come home from that car.
You must pet me very often,
Or I'll run you into the wall.
When you use the bathroom,
Your hands are doing nothing at all.
Pick up that little device,
And let me chase the dot.
It's for my amusement, not yours,
So why must you laugh a lot?
When I claw your feet,
It's only just for me.
I don't care for the exclamations,
It's time to get petting!
Despite being your master,
There's one thing I must admit.
I never had someone like you,
You're such a lovely pet.

~Oliver (wait, what?)

Companion
Healer of a loneliness deep and true,
With a soul and a mind I know she loves me too.
The one I can trust will always be there
Her and I make one hell of a pair.
Day and night she will always be loyal
Even if sometimes she thinks she is royal.
My Bella my beautiful
My Bella my beau.

Her gentle purrs

Her silky fur
Her hairless belly

Her final mews
"Mom, I'm comfortable. Why'd you have to move?
I want to sleep in your arms because I love you."
Goodbye my darling
Goodbye my precious
Goodbye my princess
Goodbye my baby
I'm sorry we didn't have more time

A little poem from my cat, Bitty's point of view.

--

Sometimes when I look outdoors,
I get a little lonely.
All I know is a loud little dog,
high walls and shiny floors.

Once I was an outside cat,
A good hunter of mice.
But I used to hunt other things;
Once I brought a rat.

But then my Daddy died.
I saw him; It was awful.
I went to warn him of the car,
but it was too late. I tried...

Then my brother followed Dad.
The same way he died.
I tried, I really tried,
But I was scared. I was bad.

Now I'm stuck indoors,
staring through a window.
Occasionally I remember
The lack of walls and shiny floors.

I once had a cat named Smoke
His long hair often made him choke
He was aloof and disdainful most of the time
But that fur was the softest, oh so sublime
We were his staff, that was clear to see
He would stand at the door and look at us like, "Excuse me."
He would meow to one who passed by
If they did not heed then he would cry
Horrible and pathetic was that wail
Accompanied by a vicious swish of his tail
And often once he was let out
You could almost see a punishing pout
And he'd turn and swish that tail at you
As if to say "I poo adieu!"
