The rest of the doors in the hallway were closed.
Sam tried to push them open with his cozy cat toes.
The lady of the house knelt next to Sam.
She placed his gray paw in her soft hand.
“Don’t do that,” she said to Sam with a smile,
“baby Ted is napping and must sleep for a while.”
She scratched Sam’s back then gave him a hug.
She told him to play with his toys on the rug.
Sam walked past the sofa where the children were reading.
He paused for a moment to give them a cozy cat greeting.
Still wishing he could find a warm, comfy cot,
cozy cat Sam would search one more spot.
A place with no books, or shoes or bats,
a place that is perfect and just for cats.
He went down to the basement and found a surprise.
A basket of warm clothes sat right before his eyes.
Sam jumped in the basket and kneaded his way,
to a resting place for his nap, after a long cozy cat day.
