Have you ever been inspired
by an animal you admired?
They ask "Who inspired you?"
You don't often say "Maine coons"
You may think of your brothers,
your sisters, or Dad,
your uncle, your cousin,
your favorite teacher, Mr. Chad
But the lovely little lions you can't help but adore
Well, let's be honest - all they really do is roar
They ask for food, they ask for toys
They spit furballs on your floor
They shed absolutely everywhere
Until you're saying "Really? More?"
And yet once you've cleaned the mess
and your kitten's in your lap
She purr, purrs away
and has a comfy nap
And you pet her gentle fur
And you listen to her purr
Your heartbeat calms, your stress is slowed
And your kitten never stirs
At the end of the day, despite all the chores
A cat can always be waiting for you right by the door
They scratch things, they break things,
but they love you evermore
Throw a bouncy ball,
watch them race down the halls
It may seem vain
but I maintain
that cats are the greatest of all.
