My Friend Pat

by Reiko Ah Quin

 

I have a black and white cat,

Her name is Pat .

 

She has a friend named Lat,

He has another friend who is a bat.

 

Her fur is very soft and white,

She likes to watch me make a kite.

 

My cat likes to chase mice,

But she thinks birds are really nice.

 

Sometimes my cat runs away,

But she always comes home another day.
