Cat a poem by Eleanor Farjeon

Cat
Cat
      Scat!
Atter her, atter her,
Sleeky flatterer,
Spitfire chatterer,
Scatter her, scatter her
      Off her mat!
      Wuff!
      Wuff!
      Treat her rough!
Git her, git her
Whiskery spitter!
Catch her, catch her,
Green-eyed scratcher!
      Slathery
      Slithery
      Hisser
      Don’t miss her!
Run till you’re dithery,
      Hithery
      Thithery
      Pfitts! Pfitts!
      How she spits!
      Spitch! Spatch!
      Can’t she scratch!
Scritching the bark
Of the sycamore-tree,
She’s reached her ark
And’s hissing at me.
      Pfitts! Pfitts!
      Wuff! Wuff!
      Scat,
      Cat!
      That’s
      That!
