"Do You Have a Cat?"

If you ask this question to the most
Then pay attention to what they say
You'll find so many will say yes
But don't k know where it is today.
 
Now this is the truth without a doubt
And the reasoning isn't hard
Yes if you don't feed them regularly
They will wander to another yard.
 
You can take my word straight to the bank
For on the subject a specialist I be
The past eight years I've caught sixty in my yard
And none of them belonged to me.
 
Well my cat loves me very much
For I feed her every day
Now this is what each one must do
Or you'll create another stray.
 
Now if we could turn them into tourists
The city would be so proud
Yet keeping a cat not spayed or neutered
Should not be allowed.
 
yes each dog requires a license
And each year must get required shots
it might be good to do the same with cats
Causing a cut back in many spots.
 
Now I am an animal lover
But my thoughts on this don't vary
The many cats loose on our city streets
Just how much disease do they carry?
