TIPTON’S FIRST DAY OUT
You know my young cat Tipton—he’s always up for fun!
So, when I got your fun invite, I knew he was THE ONE!
He’s never been away from home; this would be quite a treat
to come to your cat’s birthday and have new things to eat!
We brought your cat a stuffed pink mouse, all wrapped in shiny glow—
when I told him to give it up, all he could say was “no!”
He doesn’t play well with other cats; that fact I surely know—
He doesn’t try to “do nice”—that’s simply not his goal!
So, off we crept back to our house, our heads hanging in shame!
I’ll try next week, again, to teach him how to play the game!
