Our grandcat's name is Gracius. He's as black as India ink.

His eyes are sparkling green and his collar is shocking pink.

He had a big adventure in the middle of the night.

He bolted outside the house, giving his folks a fright.

Up the tree he scrambled, and from the highest limb,

he meowed, "Get me down dad. I'll never do it again."

Without a hook and ladder, using only a kitchen chair,

Dad brought him down in a pillow case, an answer to a prayer!

Now, Gracius cat is grounded to teach him to behave.

His family is very careful with his 9 lives left to save.

It's fun to have a black cat on the Eve of Halloween

but the scariest thing he does is climb to the top of the screen.

He makes our heart sing when we hold him in our arms.

We're just a bunch of softies for a loving kitten's charms.

Written 10/4/05 for our beloved granchildren: Harrison, Hannah, and Leah

and of course, Gracius.
