A Scottish Fold a house cat

the 12 given words:
tender rushing, unwinding leaning clear hovering
laughter blur water minor flicker anchor 

A Scottish Fold a house cat
Had a once over at the vet
Brought home a lovable pet
Tender furry feline you bet

With little jumps rushing
Unwinding and stretching
Rubbing our legs and leaning
Clearly playful, eyes twinkling
Up the mantlepiece hovering

Source of fun and laughter
But on occasions it turned blur
Never ever a liking for water
Bathtub reactions quite a bother
Though such antics were minor
Flickering hopes for better

Still anchored in one's mind
As a pet it was such a gem

  2. "With little jumps rushing

  4. Water is the root of all evil to many cats haha tearing through the house is fun for them though.
