Mind Your Mittens

A story in manners staring Sir Walter Mittens

There once was a kitten named Sir Walter Mittens
Everyone was smitten with this particular kitten
He was often up to no good, so the story was written
But they remained smitten with this kitten named Sir Walter Mittens

Sir Walter Mittens was not just your average regular kitten.
His mischievous mittens got in the way time and again.
His mother told him daily to “mind your mittens
When you spend time with your family and friends.”

Other kitties would make fun of his paws and bobbed tail.
“You’re a 26-toed mutant” they would tease and tease, not being nice.
But his super power was in his mouse punching skills.
He was extra proficient at trapping flies and pummeling mice.
Several paw stretches with 26 toes,lying all long ways and stretching his back,
wasn’t the worst thing you can suppose, when rolling over for a quick kitty nap.
And let us be honest,we mustn’t forget, that while dreaming of catnip and tasty treats,
it was hard to resist our urge not to pet and interrupt his sound kitty sleep.

Sir Walter Mittens would often bother his sister
He’d sneak up on her while she was resting
He just wanted to play but instead he would hiss her
He didn’t mean to not mind his mittens in the jesting
Sir Water Mittens was quite curious about the bath.
The soapy water made him rather nervous.
With unminded mittens he pondered the path,
as falling in would be quite the disservice.
Sir Walter Mittens helped his human with homework,
posting up beside her, faithful and true.
Wanting in on the fun, he stole pen after pen.
Not minding his mittens, he took the highlighter too.

Sir Walter Mittens enjoyed hide and seek
When hiding, the other kitties tails gave them away.
He could always count on hiding under blankets and sheets.
Tailless, no one would find him for days
or even weeks!

Sir Walter Mittens’ human typed every night
writing letters, love notes and musings.
Wanting to assist, he’d stretch his paws across the keys,
not minding his mittens while he was snoozing.

Sir Walter Mittens would go on adventures.
From his yellow backpack, he would watch the world go by.
But every so often he got distracted by birds
not minding his mittens as he too tried to fly .

not minding his mittens like during a test, his unminded mittens were simply the best.
Double paw stretches across the chest, while curled up in a blanket during Monday’s movie fest.
IMG_4931Sir Walter Mittens learned many things every single day
about growing up and learning to play.
He made mistakes like we all do along the way,
minding his mittens at the end of the day.

Farewell to rucksacks and rompers and whatever else he might fit in.
We’ve all grown quite smitten with Sir Walter Mittens,the mitten minding kitten
and the lessons he learned from his unminded mittens.
