I’m sorry, kitty,

you were having such fun

and I ruined it

Poking about in the bathroom

I staggered out of the bedroom and wondered

what are you up to?

Scrabbling behind the toilet roll holder

Ears pricked, whiskers forward

you looked happy and excited

I feared the worst

and fetched the insect spray

Carefully moved the holder

and found …

Shut you out of the bathroom

fetched a bowl and some cardboard

One small lizard relocated to the great outdoors

much to it’s relief

You’re sitting in the bathroom when I return

Giving me outraged looks

for the theft of your toy

I am sorry, Rameses

but you can’t always get what you want.

Picture is of a three-toed earless skink, native to my area.
