In honor of World Cat Day 2009, Confucius Cat offers this original poem:
Oh vile vial, noxious ampule.
Once a month, over you I must duel.
You may keep the fleas at bay and other pests in check,
But expect you no fight to keep the goop from my neck?
I run and I hide.
Giving in would destroy my pride.
But I can’t get away,
The human says this is the day.
Oh vile vial. Defeat has spoiled my glorious fur, though tis temporary.
My vow is to win next time, so you had better be wary.
