My Cat Doesn’t Want to be My Friend

I pick you up 
Every morning.
Feed you
More groaning.

I don’t know how to make you happy
My cat
Can't you be my feline friend?

I turn on the radio
so you’re not lonely.
While at work I think of you only.
Pictures on my desk
My rescue, adoption sob story.

But my cat
you don’t want to own me.
My cat
he doesn’t want to be my friend.
Instead he whines and complains
To no end.

My cat
He’s a mystery to me.
My cat
Surprise!
He crawls in bed with me.
