They think a box is quite divine,

Like every other cat!

Here they’re protecting a crate of wine,

Well, there’s certainly sense in that!

The one on the right is Calico Pie,

And she thinks that alcohol’s great.

On the left is Harri, she’s very shy,

But her sister’s her very best mate.

Calico loves a jolly good climb,

Up a box, a window, a door.

Harri is clumsy, so takes far more time,

And ends up in a heap on the floor.

Harri will chirrup to find her sister,

And she purrs and purrs and purrs.

She wants to let her know she’s missed her,

‘Cause proximity’s what she  prefers.

Her sister’s agile,  brave and quick,

 And gives anything a jolly good try,

But protects sweet Harry through thin and thick,

‘Cause she loves her, does Calico Pie.
