Cat Attack

Cat Attack

Cat terrorizes
city streets clogged with traffic
yellow cabs attract

Between massive paws
cab’s compacted and shaken
residents stay hid

office workers peer
out of glass windows to stare
at a giant cat

Loose feline prowls streets
cab drivers advised to flee
city core locked down

Pigeons all take flight
wing away from the carnage
they’re on the menu too

Look! Up in the sky–
it’s a flying cat catcher!
she’s supersonic

Her net’s extended
her hand is firm on the grip
the net dangles down

bright orange attracts
split pupil eyes that swivel
Raised paw bats at net

claws catch in its weave
Cat struggles to free itself
tangled in more nets

 Fighter jets dispatched
nets hooked to undercarriage
flies with the menace

One unhappy cat
a special delivery
the lab wants it back

Zap! In a flash cat shrinks
normal-sized house cat meows
lab assistants sigh

  1. So, how does one call such a cat? Does one call: Here, kitty, kitty, kitty?? πŸ™‚ A creative look at a lab-created cat and while I love gods (and have a dog) I also love cats.

    1. what about industrial strength catnip? πŸ˜‰ That would do the job nicely or a really big feather duster. I have never seen a cat resist pouncing on one of those. I like cats that belong to other people πŸ™‚

    1. I’m doing alright, Mel, thank you. I haven’t been able to come on WP often recently, since things have been really busy. But I hope to be able to visit with some sort of regularity now. I had a lot of fun with this post! Will be glad to have you stop by! πŸ™‚

    2. I hope Lady Luck always allows then. Blogging would become difficult if ideas don’t bubble up and pass muster! πŸ™‚ Who is this Muster anyways who passes judgment? what are his qualifications? πŸ˜‰


    3. As far as I can figure it, he seems to be Lady Luck’s doorman. A Herald, perhaps? He’s not a very fair chap. Discards half our best ideas, including the ones that call for peanut butter and jelly cakes with lemon and raspberry filling! πŸ˜€
