Unreliable Alarm Clock

 Cat Kisses
by Bobbi Katz

Sandpaper kisses
On a cheek or a chin –
That is the way
For a day to begin!

Sandpaper kisses –
A cuddle, a purr.
I have an alarm clock
That’s covered with fur.

Lily used to wake me up when she heard my alarm clock.  She would come sit near my head – which was closer to the music! – and nudge the pillow.  Sometimes she plopped herself down next to it, and I couldn’t breathe!  She doesn’t do that anymore though.  She is a most unreliable alarm clock. 

(She’s also not a very good guard dog, either.)
