The Fool Who Wants a Cat

It wasn’t very long ago,
Just about a year or so,
When I convinced my husband that
He’d hardly notice one small cat.

He made his position very clear
“She’s your responsibility, dear.
This kitten’s yours, remember that.
I’m not the fool who wants a cat.”

“You’ll be in charge of discipline,
Putting her out and letting her in.”
Well I understood she’d be my cat,
But I don’t think he remembers that.

She’s mine to care for and to feed;
I see to her every need.
But when it’s time for love and a pat,
She immediately becomes his cat.

He loves “my cat” and it’s plain to see
That she loves him as much as me.
At any designated time
You’ll find her in his lap not mine.

I suppose I could remind him that
He’s not the fool who wants a cat.
But in fact it pleases me,
Because love is better shared by three.
