Cute and Slim
I had a little pussy cat, cute but always slim
Therefore, I took her to the Vet; this issue was for him,
The first thing that he wanted was to take a peek inside,
Not much meat on her bones, he feared she could have died.
What he saw made us gasp with sharp intake of breath,
There was a real potential now that kitty could face death,
This meant an operation with urgency was due,
Had it been performed before? Yes, there’d been a few.
And very soon the trouble for dear kitty was quite gone,
She pawed and purred most happily, she really was on song,
Then I was left to pay the tab of several hundred pounds,
But I can tell you now that’s not as bad as it might sound.
A diamond ring in drawstring pouch trapped inside her tum
Had caused the skin and bones that kitty had become,
So now I’ve paid my bills and kitty’s getting fat,
Ever since the Vet has let the bag out of the cat.
