The destruction of cats

There was a letter to the editor concerning the destructive influence of cats on the bird and other animal populations. Maybe the writer would enjoy this poem.

“He stood with four legs and a long swishing tail With his sharp, piercing teeth his foe to assail.

When the moment arose, he bound with a leap and demolished his prey in an astonishing sweep.

His eyes were so sharp that he missed not a flick of the enemy’s tail, although it was quick.

His paw stopped the victim and his teeth like sharp sizers and rid our back yard of its very last lizards.”

Norma Christian, Raymondville
