"El Gato"
As I look into the eyes of 'El Gato
I can see a mystery deep within
I listen when he speaks to me but,
I can't understand my furry friend.

The mischevious one is he
and sometimes moody too
He has a special way of getting
His thoughts across to you!

You may not realize his many skills
but he's smart in a lot of ways
He'll let you pet him if you want
Or he might turn and walk away.

Perhaps the most fascinating creature on earth
An exceptionally skilled hunter, fast and keen
Temperamental, curious and loveable too
But he is often kicked and treated mean!

So when ever you get the chance
look deep into his eyes
Pay "El Gato more than just a glance
And he'll leave you slightly hipnotized!
