Me and my girl and boy, raising awareness and acceptance of autism

I got a bit stuck with today’s #Prose4T, normally I have a subject, a title and I’m away! I started and deleted two posts about different but relevant subjects before this one.

To give some background, we have two cat sisters: Itsey and Bitsey. Bitsey is a guard cat, a grumpy-looking fluffball and Itsey is quite possibly the springiest cat ever! She doesn’t run, she bounces! She always jumps if a leaf flies past her, so spends most of her days like this:


Shall we switch places?

It must be easy being a cat,
Not having to worry about this problem or that.

Spending your whole day sleeping in the sun,
miaowing at overhead birds is your idea of fun.

Occasionally giving out a purr if it suits,
You like to rub up against leggings, trousers and boots.

Out for the evening then creep onto a warm bed,
Curled up into a ball, paws over your head.

Wouldn’t it be funny if we swapped places for the day?
You go on the school runs, I’ll purr, snooze and play…

Oh, with a worm? No thank you, that’s gross!
Let’s each stick to what we both do best the most.
I’ll carry on being a Mumma, a wife and daughter too,
You go back to sleep Itsey, sorry to disturb you!

    Haha that’s lovely! I would love to be a cat. Snoozing on the radiator all winter. Sunning myself on the window sill in summer. Nipping at my human’s hand if I want food.

  2. I will happily switch places with Itsey 😉 x

  3. I used to have cats and always thought they had it easy. I remember reading a poem as a Brownie that started Cat’s sleep anywhere, on a table, on a chair. This reminded me of that!
