After I wash I am beautiful and clean,

that my long soft fur seems to gleam.

If I use all my might,

I can jump six times my own height.

Small animals will quickly flee,

just as you would from a bee.

I leave you alone when you're mad,

and cheer you up when you're sad.

In the strangest places I will lay,

because I like to sleep all day.

When I walk I walk with pride,

and when I run I seem to glide.

I purr to signal "all is well",

and show more love than words could tell.

Our friendship will take time to grow,

no wonder why you love me so.

I am the cat,

and that is that.

Hi all! I wrote this poem two years ago for a school project. I lost it and have only just found it again!

Tell me what you think.
