Ode To Genetically Altered Cats (Limerick)

If you’re a feline fan who’s very allergic to cats (as I am) and you’re very rich (as I’m not,) scientists have come to your rescue with genetically altered cats:

Ode To Genetically Altered Cats
By Madeleine Begun Kane

Do cats make you suffer and wheeze?
There’s a cure for some real hefty fees:
A kitty whose genes
Are swept allergen clean.
You can kiss and it won’t make you sneeze.

    I’m totally against genetically altered cats. Pretty soon they will have them walking and talking and we just can have that.

    Anyway, anyone got a price for this kind of a procedure or do ya’ll think it will be something that has to be done before the cat is in the womb, or however you say it.

    Designer Kat
    By Gayle Pruitt

    I have an unusual Kitty Kat His name is Mr. Gee
    We play together all day long
    He was designed especially for me

    He never kills a rat or bird no nothing so grotesque
    He sits on a chair, sofa, or bed or anywhere I deem best

    He doesn’t have claws or tail you see
    His little front legs are short
    He doesn’t bother anyone or make a doggy bark

    No need to have a littler box he takes one pill a day
    His fur can change from red to green or do a full color display

    My Kitty will never get sick or die
    But when I get tired , you see
    I just trade him in for a new little Kitty …Kitty Mr. Zee
