Prickly Toes

My kitty,
with toes so prickly
that snag my clothes
and hook my nose.
Such a dangerous life
when fuzzy toes cut like a knife.

Sunspot kitty,
basking so pretty,
rolling to and fro
while cleaning those toes.
Such a strange sight
when cleaned toes go awry.

Claws retract,
but they soon come back
looking for fun
and ready to run.
Such a sight to see
when prickly toes race with glee.
