Cat and Mouse

There was a magician, Mousini
A small, grayish, furry Houdini
             Who found it a snap 
             To escape from a trap,
If the spring was a little loosini.

His portly assistant, Felina,
Who was tired of the fare from Purina, 
             Suggested, with tact, 
             A new vanishing act
Which he tried when she had him for dina. 

                                        —A. A. Mouse
