"My heart has joined the Thousand, for my friend stopped running today." - Hazel from the book Watership Down (by Richard Adams).


The door creaks quietly,softly,Mercury starts to stalk me.
Her ears twitch,and her tail stands straight up,swishing to and fro.
This is how the game begins,I pretend not to see.
She sneaks closer to my chair,keeping very low.
I can hardly keep from laughing when she attacks from behind.
How I love this four-legged mischief maker,
I know she must be one of a kind,
She looks at me like "I gotcha!",but I know she's just a faker.
Her playful antics make me happy when I'm down,
She always knows when I need her,and when to hop into my lap,
I love Mercury,my seven-toed clown,
But she's not always cuddly; she can give you quite a slap!

Mercury must have been put here just for me
She's my one-in-a-million cat; she suits me to a T

This sonnet is about Mercury,my lovely pet cat.And she /does/ have extra toes on each of her front feet.It's just something that makes her extra special. :)
