Beno came first, young almost tame.
Then another one came, almost the same.
Then Beno came with his brother.
Then his mother came with her other.
“Enough is enough,” I said as I shooed
Young male cats who wanted a lot of sex that
“To the vet we must go, as soon as we are
He will have you all on his operating table.”
So a cat trap was hired, to lure them inside,
But the cats were too canny and would not
Sardines and a shove, eventually got them
The relief was immense, as I left them
Cyprus cats are all around, black, white,
orange and grey.
Most are stray; snakes and vermin are their
They don’t need much affection,
All they seem to need is food.
I look after them and they protect me.
