I Bought Our Cat a Jetpack
A Funny Pet Poem for Kids
From the book The Tighty-Whitey Spider
I bought our cat a jetpack
which I think she liked a lot.
She strapped it on and instantly
she took off like a shot.
She zoomed around my bedroom
then she blasted down the hall.
She ricocheted off every piece
of furniture and wall.
Our dog freaked out and ran away.
Our hamster squeaked and fled.
I even saw my sister hiding
underneath her bed.
Our cat is so fired up
I almost hate to break the news:
She’ll never catch our mouse;
I bought him rocket powered shoes.
