NaPoWriMo 2021 – Poem #9

On Today’s Agenda (From the Cat):

  1. Cuddle with my human until dawn arrives
  2. Stare at him while he sleeps, wondering when he will wake up
  3. Tap him on the face to see if he’s still alive
  4. Wait, get hungry, and tap again
  5. Mew incessantly when the tapping does not seem to work
  6. Eat
  7. Use the litter box
  8. Preen
  9. Sleep
  10. Scream like a banshee when my human forgets to feed me on time
  11. Eat
  12. Use the litter box
  13. Preen
  14. Sleep
  15. Get up early and look for more food
  16. Attack my human’s shoes to see if he feels like playing instead
  17. Sulk in the corner when he yells at me
  18. Attack my human’s couch in case he didn’t understand about the playing
  19. Sulk in the corner when he yells at me again
  20. Sleep
  21. Demand more food again
  22. Settle for some nice lap cuddles and petting
  23. Get annoyed and demand food again
  24. Eat
  25. Preen
  26. Wait until my human has cleaned my litter box and is ready to go to bed, then show him I know how to use the litter box in the bedroom. I know he loves the smell of my poop!
  27. Demand love when he’s trying to go to sleep. It is the best time for cuddles.
  28. Consider switching things up tomorrow.
  29. Sleep

NOTE: This poem is inspired by the prompt for Day #9 – write a poem in the form of a “to-do list.” The fun of this prompt is to make it the “to-do list” of an unusual person or character.
