Sleeping, silent, a gentle purr,
Curled up, so small, a ball of Fur.
Listening, alert, a familiar sound,
Footsteps, padding along the ground.
Paused, still, not even a flicker,
Eyes dart, mind whirrs, which way is quicker.
Glaring, a look, the window is shut,
How to escape that dastardly mutt.
Jumping, up high, to the top of the fridge,
A shelf, on the wall, that serves as a bridge.
