Sharing my space with others is a trial sometimes.

Write about a character from the perspective of one of their pets.
"The Territorial Terrier"
She thinks I do not care which way we walk
but I prefer a path that has no cats.
She's not aware of how we dogs may balk
at sharing territory where we're at!
Oh, there he is; that giant "OJ" tom
who thinks he owns this walk and place. He's cat;
a smelly, showy, yellow, meowed bomb
who forces me to bark and shout and spat!
This walk has raised the hackles on my rear
for I, a well-bred gentleman from Spain
have better things to do than voice my fear
of underlings who smell and I distain.
I'll pull upon my leash and let her know
I am not pleased where she would have me go!
