Puddy Paws

Small black fluffy paws pounce.

Eyes bright, ears erect, tail flicking.

Slowly the paw’s raised.

A movement in the blink of an eye.

Again the paws pounce.

Pink tongue flashes out-

Prey licked up.

Eyes wide, a shake of the head.

Surprise!

Prey spat out.

The spider scuttles away,

Free to spin webs once more.

The cat foiled for the day

Lays in wait by the door.

  1. Ha! Love this – and can just picture the disgruntled cat when it tastes the spider! This happens in our house too. Except…our old lady cat Tilly, now gone for a few years, used to eat the darn things, with relish. She clearly had faulty taste buds!

  2. Sioux will eat them if they are quite small. I remember watching him with the one that inspired this. It was quite large ( any spider is too large for me as they terrify me) and once he had it in his mouth the legs were obviously tickling him . It scuttled off under the hall cupboard door and the poor fur ball sat there patiently willing it to reappear
