When GOD Created Kitty Cats

When God created kitty cats,
He had no Recipe;
He knew He wanted something sweet,
As sweet as sweet could be.

He started out with sugar,
Adding just a trace of spice;
Then stirred in drops of Morning dew,
To keep them fresh and nice.

He thought cats should be soft to pet,
So He gave them coats of fur;
So they could show they were content,
He taught them how to purr.

He made for them long tails to wave,
While strutting down the walk;
Then trained them in meow‐ology,
So they could do cat‐talk.

He made them into acrobats,
And gave them grace and poise;
Their wide‐eyes curiosity,
He took from little boys.

He put whiskers on their faces,
Gave them tiny ears for caps;
Then shaped their little bodies,
To snugly fit on laps.

He gave them eyes as big as saucers,
To look into man’s soul;
Then set a tolerance for mankind,
Their purpose and their goal.

He made so many of them;
Then charged, with fatherly concern,
The human race to love them.

When one jumped up upon His lap,
God gently stroked its head;
The cat gave Him a kitty kiss,
“What wondrous love,” God Said.

God smiled at His accomplishment,
So pleased with His creation;
And said, with pride, as He sat back,
“At last…I’ve reached purr‐fection!”

Virginia (Ginny) Ellis wrote poetry throughout her lifetime. She had a portfolio of roughly 8 thousand poems. She expanded one of those poems into a full length book, entitled “Liz, the Condo Cat”.

She had “the heart of a pussycat, on full display whenever she was doting on one of her own sweet kitty cats or someone else’s puppy.
