It's a Floorlover's Life for Me

Yo ho, Mee-yow, a floorlover's life for me.
I extort and pilfer, I filch and I sack.
Drink up me 'earties, Mee-yow.
Maraud and embezzle and even highjack.
Drink up me 'earties, Mee-yow!

There's a surprising lot to do down here, too.
I get the best shot at fresh bugs or dropped food
I come across forgotten toys.
I can strike out at a passing toe or ankle.
Plus, what little coolish air there is, is right here. 
Where I get first crack at it.


  1. Dropped food is da best part of da floor.

  2. You can prolly find some loose change too to buy noms. A little late with the pirate booty, arrrrn’t you? MOL!

  3. That's a rollicking pirate poem, Spitty. We agree -- there's a whole lot of good stuff to be found at floor level.

  4. Are you still celebrating Meow Like a Pirate Day, Spitty?

  5. There's more going on around the floor than humans realize!

  6. Have you tried ice bags Spitty ?
    Or there's a white thing in the kitchen which often makes a whining noise; the light inside goes on when the door opens and it is a treasure trove of tasty noms. You could try in there for cools.

  7. Another wee verse for your growing collection, Spitty. Your publisher is gonna be thrilled.

    Have you given any thought to seeking syndicated publication in newspapers or magazines first before launching the your hardback book collection of poems? Just a thought.

  8. Earworm's not going to work today Spitty! She still can't get rid of yesterdays. She even said something about going to You Tube for a listen. Sad or what??

  9. I hear you. I do the same for the same reason although lately I have taken up napping only, residence behind the wooden rocking chair. You know what they say about THOSE! So I am careful.

    UTB it is. Hams and half and half and all will be talked about and baths given.

  10. We all spend a good amount of floor time here too Spitty!

  11. Chuck goes up, while Angel stays low, Spitty.

  12. Fresh bugs and the opportunity to attack toes are great advantages to staying on the floor. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  13. Or a little treat that got away from the food bowl.

Leave me a meow or a hiss; I don't mind a hiss or two. . . or even a bitey.
