Stop in, have a snack, pet a cat -- enjoy!
Winner, Writer's Cramp, 2021-08-04

At the Calico Cat Cafe
You are welcome to drop by for coffee or tea or a light lunch
Unless you are allergic to cats, in which case it would be my best hunch
That you should stay away.

Each mikeneko cat
Would love to have you wander by most anytime
As people-loving kitties, they'd consider it divine
If you would please do that.

Au Canada, chez nous,
We call them "chattes d'Espagne", female cats of Spain
But they are still white and orange and black in the main,
Here in Canada too.

Our calico cats are free
To cuddle and pet and just generally love and adore.
Plus for your coffee and soup and everything else, hairs galore
In brilliant colors three.

So we hope you'll come our way.
Stop in to visit, have a snack, or simply come to pet a cat
And soothe your soul; you never will be charged for that
At the Calico Cat Cafe.
