cat and collar

First of all,
it is no longer
the Victorian era.
Remove this starched
piece of cheap
collar immediately.
I am not posing
in this monstrosity.
There could be
a roomful of cats
waiting for portraits,
or worse, a roomful
of dogs. I wish
to keep my dignity.


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    I hear ya, Puss. My first dog looked so resentful and mortified when i put some dumb get-up on him that I took it off and never did it again.


  2. Purr-fection! Pup was deeply mortified at donning antlers for the xmas photo. I am sorry now that i did that to him.

    Wonderful! Those Catty Kitties know what’s up!


  8. Margaret Schaff Bednar says:

    Ha, yes. But a dog would look much sillier in the undignified ruff.


  9. Susie Clevenger says:

    Oh, I can hear that cat saying that. You’ve caught it’s attitude perfectly.


  10. A bit of a Top Cat?
