Swinging a Cat By Its Tail

Swinging a Cat By Its Tail


By Elton Camp

About a man swinging a cat folks are having a fit

But it seems to me that it is an award he should get

There are few animals that are as vicious as a cat

And they well deserve to be treated exactly like that

Cats are vain, lazy and seem to expect to be catered to

Those who provide their care, the decision will rue

Even far worse, cats can to humans, transmit disease

Examples of the risks involved are such as these:

Cat-scratch disease is the most common a person might

Find that they have got from a filthy cat’s scratch or bite

Salmonella cats can give to a hapless human victim

Who can become seriously sick when he is stricken

Roundworms and hookworms move from cat to child

That fact alone shows cats should be out in the wild

Ringworm is a skin infection actually due to a fungus

Another risk that filthy cats can easily bring among us

Fatal rabies, giardiasis and toxoplasmosis, are there too

And good reason why contact with cats shouldn’t be true

The cat was given free run of the entire neighborhood

Now it stays inside and I think that is really very good

If, to her precious cat, the owner had given proper care

Then it wouldn’t have been roaming around out there

That the swinging even happened nobody could prove

Except that intrusive cameras record our every move

(Note:  true story.  Google it and see.)
