An acrostic on getting what I want

By Cathy holmesPublished about a month ago 1 min read

Eventually she’ll concede defeat.

Capitulating under my furry feet (just go with it, you know I don’t have thumbs).

Looking into my sparkling eyes,

impossible to resist my smile (yes, I know cats can’t really smile. Shut up).

Pretending she gave me a breakfast to eat (liar),

stupid human with brains of mincemeat (oops, sorry not sorry).

Eventually, I will get my treat (or she’ll get a five-claw sandwich).

    I always love a great Abigail poem! She's especially sassy in this one 🤣 Love it! I agree with Lamar -- she needs her own vocal account 😍

    Agree with Lamar here. That fat cat is gonna rule the world. Making us all her treat makers.

    😅🤩 So funny. Abigail needs her own profile. She may have no thumbs but she can write her ass off!!! Lol.

    Omgggg just a few hours back I was thinking about knuckle sandwich and how it's been so long since I've heard anyone use it. I loved Abigail's modified version of it hehehehhee. I enjoyed her Acrostic so much!

  • Donna Fox (HKB)about a month ago

    Hahah!! This was so cute!! I love it and with three of my own cats, this was a little too relatable!! That being said, I dare argue that cat's do smile! 😉

  • Great take on the challenge and it's Abigail

    Purr-fect!!! ♡♡♡ Loving it!!!💕❤️❤️

  • Ameer Bibiabout a month ago

    Cats are loving and intelligent at the same time. My cat is trying not to break her eye contact with me because she needs something. Her innocent style melts my heart. You write it beautifully and in a funny style.

  • Dana Crandellabout a month ago

    LOL I do love it when Abigail writes! Great job, ladies!
