Sunday Writing Prompt #228 “It’s All In The Title”


For the Love of Absurdity

I had a cat once, then who hasn’t?

But mine was odd, or you might say normal,

It ate choc chip biscuits

While sitting on the lounge

Dressed always in its favourite onesie.

I did at times question why

But the cat would stop purring

Give me its evil eye

Munch its teeth into another choc chip

and settle back further into the lounge chair.

I tried it with a scratching pole

But it said it was far too cold

Then I enticed it with a rubber mouse

But it spat and said wake up you idiot

I’m not a cat given over to bribes

You better get more of these choc chip munchies.

It would sit after eating in resplendent delight

Licking the crumbs from off its vast front

Telling me, I’d best behave as it had the power

Believe it or not

To send me out to the yard in the dark.

So, the cat and I learned to respect the others space

I bought it biscuits, it cleaned its face

It wore the aqua onesie from February till November

Then sported a festive one with great big claws.

    My cat preferred pizza. He could open the lid of the box just enough to help himself to a prawn or piece of cabanossi, let the lid fall down, eat the stolen goods and then repeat the process. I love the blue onesie, it’s definitely his colour 😀

    I love this. That cat is awesome! Scarey but awesome, lol.

  4. How does your cat make poop if it is always wearing that onesie?

  5. I love that you used the image, this brought a huge smile to my face Michael =) I had a very lovely cat Garfield (fat and orange no surprises) that could talk a little bit not like full on conversations and sometimes copied expressions he heard from television. Literally you would pop into a room and he’d say Whats up? That was usually all he ever asked various expressions to see how you were feeling and some basic greetings. He also really like Abba go figure haha
