Mr Jingles the Cat

Cats come in different breeds and colours but you can’t beat the good old domestic cat or moggy as they are sometimes called.  The question is often asked – “are you a cat person or a dog person”?

For me I would have to say I am a dog person, preferring a cute little pooch over a furry feline. Most of the time, a cat appears to be aloof and spends most of the time eating and sleeping and then sleeping some more!  Sometimes you have to wonder what is going through that tiny little brain ….


My name is Mister Jingles and I’m a fifteen year old cat
I live at 20 Parker Place in a run-down council flat

For many years I was the one who got all the attention
Until my owner bought a dog now I never get a mention

A pampered pooch named Jezebel has come into this house
She eats my food and chases me and chews my rubber mouse

She makes my life a misery and I never get a rest
My owner thinks she’s lovely but I think she’s just a pest

She tries to be the boss around here with her nose stuck in the air
She curls up every day at noon in my owner’s favourite chair

At least I help to earn my keep by chasing mice away
I’m always on the lookout each and every day

I know I must be tolerant, patient, kind and true
And learn to live in harmony like every cat must do

But every night when I’m asleep my mind begins to wander
Wicked thoughts they come to me to kick her butt way yonder

They say that in the afterlife you can come back as you wish
I’d come back as a Doberman and piddle in her dish

My name is Mister Jingles and I’m a fifteen year old cat
I live at 20 Parker Place and crikey …. I’ve just seen a rat!
