A fur coat stolen from a bear.
Just think what such a cat might do
to every fur coat in the zoo!
And when it comes to food and drink,
He’ll steal that too, so stop and think –
Just don’t keep in your garden pond
The silver fish of which he’s fond.
He’ll tiptoe softly on two feet
To creep unnoticed down your street.
He’ll wait until you turn your back
Then slip in for a sneaky snack.
You will not catch him feasting. He
Is much too sly to let you see.
He does not eat the fish right then
But pockets it and leaves again.
