My Cat Goes Flying Through the Air
A Funny Cat Poem for Kids
Buy the book The Tighty-Whitey Spider
My cat goes flying through the air
from over here to over there.
He lands and runs right back, and then
goes flying through the air again.
I didn’t used to see him fly,
like Superkitty, through the sky.
He used to only lie around
upon my bed or on the ground.
But now he’s like an acrobat;
the coolest ever flying cat.
And how’d he get this great result?
He built himself a catapult.
