In this poem, the cat is licking the narrator’s chin and cheek.  How we figured this out was that we know that cats purr, they have fur, cats cuddle, and have rough tongues like sandpaper.  We think it would be very unpleasent to wake up in this manner.  We liked how Ms. Katz hinted that it was a cat but didn’t say it straightforward. We loved how this poem made us think. grin

Thanks for the comment Mrs. Alaniz’s Class! Did you notice that the author of the poem (Mrs. Katz) has a name that is a hint about the subject of her poem? Seymour grin

At first, we were confused by kisses that could be sandpaper. They didn’t sound too nice. The purring and fur clues helped us to realize that the poem was about a kitty.
We REALLY liked that the poet’s name was Ms. Katz. We used the book “Pocket Poems” by Bobbie Katz for Poem in Your Pocket Day a couple of weeks ago. surprised

The sandpaper kisses are licks from cats, because cats like and pur.
