Today you are an explorer. What do you explore? Where do you go to do this exploring? What are the consequences?
I am the youngest small cat
in this cat-infested house!
My Human Folks are pack-rats--
I'm sure they've stowed a MOUSE
somewhere in all the cluttered MESS
they've dragged across the state!
Exploring causes me distress--
their housekeeping's not great!
I spend my days exploring
all the treasures that they've brought!
The work is never boring
it's the technique I've been taught
by all my older relatives,
on their hunt for random treats;
and other things They might give--
we always have good eats!
But while I am exploring,
I have to walk with care!
'Cause stuff often goes flying
and leaves me in the air
where once a solid object was!
My path's a slippery slope!
The danger stops me--gives me pause--
all I can do is HOPE!!
