Introduced Invasive Quadruped, or, Professor Mittens

So my sister found a stray cat,
and she is allergic at that.
With the fur of a soft kitten,
we call her Professor Mittens.
But I prefer Introduced Invasive Quadruped.
Well cats like to play with frogs,
Like chew toys for dogs.
And I like the frogs,
all snug in their bogs.
Same goes for the birds,
not used to the species merge,
of household feline and woodland.
So before you let your cat out,
be sure to cast about,
for local animals who may become dinner.
For the more cats we have,
the outdoors will grow drab,
as the death toll grows bigger and bigger.
Keep your feline indoors,
entertain him with s'mores,
what ever is necessary to keep him off the prowl.
Be sure to adopt,
bring over population to a stop,
and always spay and neuter.

     Because both my dad and my sister are allergic to cats, we will not be keeping Professor Mittens, or as I like to call her, Introduced Invasive Quadruped. Not that I have anything against cats, Mittens is extremely sweet and playful and nice, but she is also playing with the frogs that live around the wishing well. This I will not have.
     Monday I will be calling around the local veterinary clinics and animal shelters to see if she has an owner. If not, I will be surrendering her to a local no-kill shelter. This is obviously an indoor cat. No doubts. She is also very skinny. She would be happier at a shelter than out here. I have been giving her enough food to get her by so she doesn't go after a chicken, but not quite enough for her to settle. Hopefully she has a loving owner who will be ecstatic to be reunited with her.
