Tucker and I tried something new last night. I thought it would be fun to have him sleep with me. I also thought he might settle down and snuggle under the covers. He did, for about 3 seconds. The following tells the story of our "experiment".
Have you ever let a kitten sleep in your bed?
Did he jump and play and climb on your head?
When kitten and I are tucked under the covers
He wiggles out and over me hovers
Waiting for movement from my foot or hand.
He pounces and prances and on me will land.
He climbs on the dresser, falls off in a heap,
Climbs back on the bed, but he does not sleep.
Down to the floor he jumps once again.
He's ready for play though we're at the days' end.
The lamp on the table goes down with a boom
And Tucker is sent, like a child, to his room
He's quiet once more and his door is shut tightly
This isn't a thing we will ever do nightly.
That sweet little kitten with angelic face
Is so energetic, I can't equal his pace.
To wide awake Tucker it might not be clear
Why he's now in his room and I'm sleeping out here.
