The Problem with Cats

The problem with cats
let me count the ways.
Just don’t ask them this question,
for rhetorically or otherwise
in no other mind is a cat so perfect
as in its own.
Humans are suckers for their shtick;
yes, we’re door or can openers with legs,
yet when they come a rubbing on our legs
we purr with thanks,
roll on our bellies
and switch our tails,
daring them to pay more attention.
