“Max, the Black Cat”


Description from D Gooding: There once was a black cat named Max.
In manners he was very lax.
He made children scream
when on Halloween
he jumped out from under a fax.

He tugged at the sheets of a ghost.
He was not a very good host.
He made the clown cry
and the witch yelled "Oh my!"
as he sharpened his claws on a post.

The candy he tossed to the floor.
And ran when they knocked on the door.
He did not want out,
but he did make them shout.
especially the kids under four.

The kids left with all of their loot.
To scold Max the point was just moot.
Cuz he jumped in my lap,
took a ten minute nap,
and I told him "good thing you're so cute!"

(Just a note: Yes, there really is a cat named Max. Yes, he is really full of mischief. Yes, I really do say "good thing you're so cute" quite a bit. And I love him to pieces!)

    WINNER for the cutest story! I love Max’s tail (uh feather)… This is so clever and I love your poem. Animals rule the house, be it cat or dog. :-) Great pick!!!

    Ha Ha! Thank you! I had a blast writing this. Pets certainly do make a “house” a “home.”

    Too funny and very visual! I had a Siamese cat who would hid under the chenille bedspread and attack. Those poor little ghosties never had a chance! Thanks for the poem and pick.
