Zelda the Zealot’s a very fine cat
And if nothing better’s offered she’ll sit on a mat.
Though Zelda the Zealot prefers when she’s able
To beg food and hunt crumbs on the table.
Zelda the Zealot’s made herself a lair
On a blanket by the window in a corner of the stair.
Zelda the Zealot likes to dream of the noise
Of birds at the bird table, stalking’s one of her joys.
Zelda the Zealot’s a tree-loving cat,
She’ll climb way up high if there’s something to pat.
Zelda the Zealot’s without fear, not a trace!
She’ll walk along branches with balance and grace.
Zelda the Zealot’s a most active cat,
But sometimes she stops for a requiescat.
Zelda the Zealot’s the only cat I know
Who’ll happily play all day in the snow.
Now that’s the end of my catterel rhyme
Of Zelda the Zealot – who thinks: “About time!”
Zealot was Artwiculate’s word of the day today.
The cats in the pictures are actually called Lillan and Rani and live with my brother- and sister-in-law. Zelda is the name of my niece’s cat, but she’s no zealot. 😉

@OldSchoolHaiku Hi Bill, I had your photostories/poems in mind when I made my illustrated doggerel https://thesupercargo.com/?p=1983
Very nice poetry John 🙂
Thank you! It’s doggerel really (catterel perhaps 🙂 ) I know, but thank you.
