Ginger and white with strippety stripes
He loves to sit on my laptop at night.
My cat’s a modern laptop cat.
That’s the place where he loves to nap.
On laptop computer he sits on the keys
With no regard, and apparent ease.
His tail flicks as he surfs the net.
My cat is a cyberworld pet.
Errors galore appear on the screen.
Now you can see where my cat has been.
“Go chase a mouse outside” I say,
“A computer’s no place for a cat to stay!”
But the only mouse my cat gets near
Is the one by the laptop above the chair.
Plastic, immobile, silent and grey.
A poor example of a cat’s prey!
The only laptop a cat should visit
Is a human lap I believe, or is it?
When my lap is not around to be sat on
The computer will usually have my cat on.
What's that message that's just appeared
In my inbox, it's really weird!
It says "come home and feed your cat
And hurry up, as it's time for my nap!"
