A poem about a cat

A poem about a cat

This nice poem was written by a 9 year-old french child on May 6, 1952. LE FIGARO wanted to publish it in its magazine. Very likely it was bought from the teacher of the child. It’s really very funny to see how a child sees cats.

The cat

“Cat is an animal that has two paws from the front,
Two others from the back,
Two paws from the left

And two others from the right.

The paws of the front help him to run,

The ones  of the back serve as brakes.
Cat has a tail that follows his body

And it finishes suddenly.

He has whiskers under his nose,
They are rigid as iron wires.

That’s  why he belongs to the family of felines.

Sometimes a cat wants to have kittens

And when he does, he becomes female.
