My pussycat uses his claws

Pulling on my hand with paws

As if to ask

To be picked up fast,

His teasing points out my skin flaws.

So I sweep him up in my grasp

And he hops down almost as fast….

Preferring to purr

Distantly as it were,

While his tail my leg lightly taps.

This behavior I’ve not figured out

In all the years he’s been about…

He teases for “up”

And just as abrupt,

Turn his back to me, purring it out.

  3. After I initially commented I clicked the -Notify me when new feedback are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I get 4 emails with the same comment. Is there any manner you possibly can take away me from that service? Thanks!

    • sorry I can not help you from my end you have to go back and un check the notify me box and then the emails will stop, thanks

  4. I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are too short for beginners. Could you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post.

  5. There are some fascinating points in time on this article but I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity however I’ll take maintain opinion till I look into it further. Good article , thanks and we wish extra! Added to FeedBurner as nicely
