Cat Poems for Kids

Our kittens have the softest fur,

And the sweetest little purr,

And such little velvet paws

With such cunning little claws,

And blue eyes, just like the sky!

(Must they turn green, by and by?)

Two are striped like tigers, three

Are as black as black can be,

And they run so fast and play

With their tails, and are so gay,

Is it not a pity that

Each must grow into a cat?

The poem 'our kittens' is written by Evaleen Stein. The poet is talking about his kittens in the poem. He is saying that his kittens are so beautiful and he doesn't want them to grow older as he likes the little kittens.



Here is another cat poem. This poem is titled 'The three little kittens, they lost their mittens' and is written by Mother Goose. 

The three little kittens, lost their mittens,

And they began to cry,

"Oh, mother dear, we sadly fear,

That we have lost our mittens."

"What!   Lost your mittens, you naughty kittens!

Then you shall have no pie."

"Meow, meow, meow."

"Then you shall have no pie."

The three little kittens, found their mittens,

And they began to cry,

"Oh, mother dear, see here, see here,

For we have found our mittens."

"Put on your mittens, you silly kittens,

And you shall have some pie."

"Purr, purr, purr,

Oh, let us have some pie."

The three little kittens put on their mittens,

And soon ate up the pie,

"Oh, mother dear, we greatly fear,

That we have soiled our mittens."

"What, soiled your mittens, you naughty kittens!"

Then they began to sigh,

"Meow, meow, meow,"

Then they began to sigh.

The three little kittens, they washed their mittens,

And hung them out to dry,

"Oh, mother dear, do you not hear,

That we have washed our mittens?"

"What, washed your mittens, then you're good kittens,

But I smell a rat close by."

"Meow, meow, meow,

We smell a rat close by."

My Cat Poem

I taught my cat to clean my room,

to use a bucket, brush and broom,

to dust my clock and picture frames,

and pick up all my toys and games.

He puts my pants and shirts away,

and makes my bed, and I would say

it seems to me it’s only fair

he puts away my underwear.

In fact, I think he’s got it made.

I’m not as happy with our trade.

He may pick up my shoes and socks,

but I clean out his litter box.
