What is A Pet? – Angel C.

A pet is an animal

That you can hug,

Love and adore,

Even a bug!


Some are too big,

To snuggle and hold,

Others, like pigs,

Will sometimes be sold.  


Cats are the best,

To sleep with and cuddle,

Cats like to rest,

And then they will snuggle!  


Beware! Because under those paws,

Are hidden sharp claws!

Those cute little kittens,

Who’d think to guess?  


There are some pets

That don’t like to snuggle,

A snake and goose,

A snail and moose.  


These aren’t the only things

Pets are good for;

Riding and romping and,

Playing and more.  


Whether your pet is a

Cat or a mouse,

Bird in its house,

Everyone needs a pet.

Hi, I’m Jorja! I’m a Christian teen from Arizona with a passion for story craft, library hauls, and polka dots. I started writing about five years ago. Back then I mostly wrote short stories (and some fanfiction), but I’ve since moved onto the novel game. I can often be found reading, writing, listening to music, baking, playing piano and ukulele (Not at the same time. Yet.), playing with my pet hedgehog, or nerding out about various fandoms.
