Purr-fect Deception
PeggyParis

In white and black and red,
 1
She looked quite soft and sweet;
 2
She blended with the flow’ry drapes,
 3
Her camouflage complete.
 4
 
 
Black, tiny, beady eyes
 5
One skinny, too-long tail
 6
A speedy dart across the room
 7
Alas, to no avail!
 8
 
 
Miss Predator, the cat
 9
Who called this house her home
 10
Made mincemeat of the humble mouse
 11
That dared step in to roam.
 12
 
 
A lesson can be learned
 13
By mice who care to know
 14
That cats exist in colors broad
 15
Including calico!

interesting. I don't feel it flows very well language-wise, but it's quite original and up-lifting.

I appreciate you both taking the time to read and comment.  LOL---Maybe, at least, the title caught some attention.

HAHAHAHAHA!  This is one of the funniest recently.  My Katy used to hide her calico self in amongst the Nasturiums and Sun Flowers where you could barely make her out.

Thanks for finding the humor, Isabelle.  I knew there had to be someone else who could relate to this scenario.  You can't imagine how much I appreciate your taking the time to read and comment.  You've got to love a calico!
