Hello, he said
With a toothy grin
Who are you?
And where have you been?

I looked all around
But all I could see
Were big glowing teeth
Smiling back at me

High up in the tree
He slowly appeared
From nose to tail
It was rather weird

He was striped orange
And utterly rotund
Hearing him laugh
Left me quite stunned

Then once again
He was gone in a flash
My head still confused
Away I did dash

Was that all real
Or an illusion I had
All that I know is
That cat was quite mad
