Some cats like to prowl,
and some even growl,
while others would rather take naps.
But my Mrs. Mittens –
an internet kitten — is
fonder of laptops than laps.
Unlike other cats,
this one downloads and chats
and is constantly checking her e-mail.
An ad she has posted
has recently boasted
she’s a young single Siamese female.
With paws soft and quick,
she’ll type and she’ll click,
so some research or maybe some shopping.
She bookmarks new sites,
she surfs and she writes,
or she’ll scan in some photos for swapping.
It’s simply absurd,
she’s an internet nerd,
who ignores all the rest of the house.
What cat would admit
it would ever see fit
to enjoy so much time with a mouse?
