A board game about herding cats
My favorite game is Herd the Cats
Don't laugh, I like to play
The goal is pure frustration
It brightens the whole day

I can purchase helpful items
Claw covers, toy mice, catnips
The Leather Glove's costly
But my skin's not shredded strips

I must find all four felines
Tricky, Lazy, Stubborn,Scoot
But for fifteen cat food bucks
I can buy a Herding Boot

Tricky hides in a cat condo
Whose spaces number ten
If I don't find him in two tries
I go round the board again

I relish moving Lazy's bod
He clutches with his claws
Plus, his weight's amazing
It defies nature's laws

Stubborn's routine is precious
For her I employ a bribe
Or two, six, perhaps eleven
She claims Queenhood in this tribe

Little Scoot's a kitten
He can race anywhere
But chase him up the curtain
He mews pathetically, stuck there

This game soothes my spirit
I'm reminded that my life
Filled with seven barking dogs
Contains a lot less strife
