As Rufus gets up at the start of day -
He leaps on my bed to seek food and play;
With soft pads he pounces on knees and toes,
And if I don't wake up, he nibbles my nose.
Collecting myself I get up to groom -
While Rufus goes racing around the room;
And as he climbs up on his perch of white,
My red Aby glows in the bright morning light.
Then on to the kitchen to cook and brew,
I get out the coffee and creamer, too;
But while I prep skillet with oil and heat,
I trip over Rufus who's under my feet.
Removing my kitty with crimson hair,
I reach for some cat food in cupboard there:
And as I serve contents of egg and fish,
Sir Rufus T. Cheerwine runs straight for the dish.
As seconds go by in this kitchen scene,
My Rufus licks plate 'til it's nice and clean;
Then begging for more he meows just a bit,
Though I tell him firmly with love, "That's it."
One morning right after I cooked awhile,
I stacked some hot sausages in a pile;
And when I bent down for another pan,
Sir Rufus jumped up, grabbed a sausage, and ran.
I chased after him through the front and rear,
While watching both link and cat disappear;
But soon I gave up, being tired and beat,
And went to the kitchen to guard the hot meat.
A while later on when the meal was done -
I spied robber Rufus bask in the sun;
His face smiling happy with no lament,
With a belly some larger and quite content
