Aby-a-Day – January 21: “Up High Is Where I Like to Go…”

This photo reminds me of a cat poem by Paul Gallico


Up high is where I like to go
Watching people down below
That’s why you find me up a tree
Where no one can look down on me

I love the fact that the same man who wrote “Pride of the Yankees” also wrote a book of cat poetry. Of course, with one cat named Jacoby and another named Tessie, I’m not thrilled that he chose to write about that team, but Paul Gallico is proof that Real Men Have Cats.
