Mousies are grayish and catnip is green,
As roommates go you’re the best I have seen.
You’re funny and cuddly and purry and such
You’re sneaky and stealthy with a static-y touch.
In shadows you lurk where you think you’re unseen,
On stalking and hunting me it seems you’re quite keen.
You snuggle at night and then wake me at dawn
To feed you before even coffee goes on.
The love that I feel when against me you rub
Makes up for all that gray fur I find in the tub.
So I sit here tonight with a lapful of purr
And I wish you sweet Valentine’s, Dear Catsby, good sir.
