MISS PRETTY
Back then, it was easy to sit, hours on end
To have kinky hair corn-rowed with, or
Without the extensions added, to lend
The length of vanity, time thus courted;
Youth and its foibles reveled hours on end
While 'Miss Pretty' sat poised on the wall
She adored these glam hours we would spend
Hairdresser braided, she preened or napped
A yellow-eyed little fur-balled friend
So well named such a hoity toity cat,
Those were days of coiffure hours on end

  3. I love this scene, the hair being corn-rowed, the kitty blissfully watching and dozing. Love "yellow-eyed little fur balled friend". So sweet.

  6. Aw. How nice to have a cute little cat around while someone's doing your hair. And the little cat is so aptly named to live in hair salon - What else could Miss Pretty be, but pretty?
    Enjoyed this Gillena.

  14. Miss Pretty sure has a place in every customer's heart. It takes the focus off from the bothersome braiding process!
