All children love animals and bring a pure heart. We must nurture the kindness of children by teaching them how to love and protect animals.
Children are often very excited and passionate about watching animals in nature. From the worm is enjoying the delicious leaves to the sunbathing squirrel. They can also spend hours watching ants bring food to the nest, or try to talk to dogs and cats.
Do you know? Pets can be a best friend of the child, and a cute family member. Happy moments with pets will help your child feel comfortable, and those moments will become beautiful memories throughout their lives.
Here, we have collected 20 funny poems about pets and animals for children, very suitable for you to read for your children. Wish you have the best moments with good poems about animals and funny poems about pets for children!
1. My Best Friend © Abby Jenkins
Black and white
Thick and furry
Fast as the wind
Always in a hurry
Couple of spots
Rub my ears
Always comes when his name he hears
Loves his ball; it’s his favorite thing
What’s most fun for him? Everything!
Great big tongue that licks my face
Has a crate, his very own space
Big brown eyes like moon pies
He’s my friend till the very end!
2. A Worm In My Pocket © Jodee Samano
One rainy day on my way home from school,
I found a big worm and thought it was cool.
I picked up the worm with my bare hand,
held it up high, thinking how grand!
The worm was so cute and wiggled a lot.
I put him in my pocket to show Mom what I’d caught.
What will she say when I show her my find?
Will she let me keep it? I hope she won’t mind.
Mom was in the kitchen when I showed her what I’d found.
She screamed, “No, way! Put it back in the ground!”
Now I’m so angry; she always says, “No.”
If she won’t let me keep it, then I will just go!
So me and my worm packed a sandwich or two,
ran out the door, and down the street we both flew.
We walked to the park and sat on a bench.
I pulled out my worm and noticed a stench.
He looked kind of floppy but wiggled a bit.
I thought, “Oh my Gosh, my worm is not fit!”
I laid him in the dirt and let him go free.
I guess that my pocket was not the best place to be.
I met a Man as I went walking:
We got talking,
Man and I.
‘Where are you going to, Man?’ I said
(I said to the Man as he went by).
‘Down to the village, to get some bread.
Will you come with me?’ ‘No, not I.’
I met a horse as I went walking;
We got talking,
Horse and I.
‘Where are you going to, Horse, today?’
(I said to the Horse as he went by).
‘Down to the village to get some hay.
Will you come with me?’ ‘No, not I.’
I met a Woman as I went walking;
We got talking,
Woman and I.
‘Where are you going to, Woman, so early?’
(I said to the Woman as she went by).
‘Down to the village to get some barley.
Will you come with me?’ ‘No, not I.’
I met some Rabbits as I went walking;
We got talking,
Rabbits and I.
‘Where are you going in your brown fur coats?’
(I said to the Rabbits as they went by).
‘Down to the village to get some oats.
Will you come with us?’ ‘No, not I.’
I met a Puppy as I went walking;
We got talking,
Puppy and I.
‘Where are you going this nice fine day?’
(I said to the Puppy as he went by).
‘Up to the hills to roll and play.’
‘I’ll come with you, Puppy,’ said I.

Oh, I wish I were a glow worm,
for a glow worm’s never glum,
’cause how can you be grumpy
when the sun shines out your bum!
5. Rabbits © Shannon W.
Nobody knows the rabbit’s nose,
the way it twitches,
the way it goes.
Nobody knows the rabbit’s ears,
the way it listens,
the way it hears.
Nobody knows the rabbit’s toes,
the way they hop the highs,
the way they bounce the lows.
I know the rabbit’s eyes,
the way they look,
the way they despise.
6. My First Pet © Kevin T Pearson
My mommy said today
That I could get a pet one day.
I gave her a kiss
Then started making my list.
Maybe I could get a giraffe.
It would be so fun to give him a bath.
What about a rhinoceros? I thought.
I am sure that it must eat a lot.
I could get a monkey.
Together we could swing from tree to tree.
I know, I could get an armadillo.
She could sleep under my pillow.
How about a kangaroo?
But only if she has room for two.
I’m sure I don’t want a porcupine.
I would be saying “ouch” all the time.
It would be fun to have a horse.
He would have to live outside, of course.
Okay, maybe a hippopotamus.
It will probably eat as much as the rhinoceros.
An elephant would be fun as can be
If he doesn’t sit on me.
I could get along with a pig just fine,
Rolling in mud all the time.
I gave my mom my list.
She bent down and gave me a kiss,
Put her hand to her heart,
And said a fish would be a good start.
I know very well what I’d rather be
If I didn’t always have to be me!
I’d rather be an owl,
A downy feathered owl,
A wink-ity, blink-ity, yellow-eyed owl
In a hole in a hollow tree.
I’d take my dinner in chipmunk town,
And wouldn’t I gobble the field mice down,
If I were a wink-ity, blink-ity owl,
And didn’t always have to be me!
I know very well what I’d like to do
If I didn’t have to do what I do!
I’d go and be a woodpecker,
A rap-ity, tap-ity, red-headed woodpecker
In the top of a tall old tree.
And I’d never take a look
At a lesson or a book,
And I’d scold like a pirate on the sea,
If I only had to do what I like to do,
And didn’t always have to be me!
Or else I’d be an antelope,
A pronghorned antelope,
With lots of other antelope
Skimming like a cloud on a wire-grass plian.
A bounding, bouncing antelope,
You’d never get me back to my desk again!
Or I might be a puma,
A singe-colored puma,
A slinking, sly-foot puma
As fierce as fierce could be!
And I’d wait by the waterholes where antelope drink
In the cool of the morning
And I do
That ever any antelope could get away from me.
But if I were a hunter,
A red Indian hunter –
I’d like to be a hunter, –
I’d have a bow made of juniper wood
From a lightning-blasted tree,
And I’d creep and I’d creep on that puma asleep
A flint tipped arrow,
An eagle feathered arrow,
For a puma kills calves and a puma kills sheep,
And he’d never eat any more antelope
If he once met up with me!
8. Yip-Yip-Woof! © Kristin Frederick
Humongous Great Dane.
The difference between them
Is really quite plain.
Will yap-yap and yip.
If he doesn’t like you,
You may get a nip!
Gentle Great Dane
Has a powerful bite,
But never would nip you.
She’s much too polite.
Great Dane finds the carpet
A fine place to nap.
Chihuahua loves curling
Right up in your lap.
Their owners would have
Some cause for dismay
If each dog behaved
In the opposite way!
9. Pet Porta Potty © Kathy J Parenteau
I took a walk in the city today
to try to pass the time away.
Saw lots of people walking too.
Stepped right in a pile of doggy doo.
I thought for a moment just what could be done
to clean up the streets of doggie dung.
Maybe I’ll invent something really super,
even finer than a pooper scooper.
A port a potty for our four legged friends
on every street corner where every road bends.
Then I’ll become famous for this awesome invention.
At the monthly town meetings my name will be mentioned.
They’ll throw a big party and dance in the streets
because never again will there be poop on our feet!
10. Always Love Your Pet, No Matter How Old They Get © Lesley M. Patterson
Pets are people, too, just like me and you.
They need food in their tummies and lots of beefy yummies.
They are little, but their hearts are BIG.
They like to go outside, get fresh air, and dig.
From big to small, they give their all,
And you can play with them with a toy or with a ball.
To the special bond between human and pet,
always by your side, forever, I’ll bet.
Your faithful pet depends on you
and all the special things for them that you do.
Pets help teach us nature’s true compassion.
They do not withhold love, nor with it do they ration.
And with our pets, I have no doubt,
that we are lucky not to have to live without.
A furry friend that’s always happy to see you,
from life’s ups and downs and all that people do.
It’s quite a sight for sore eyes to behold,
because that bond is as special as gold.
Always show them love and good measure,
and reap each day a true friend to treasure.
Children, remember to be good to your pet
Be loving to them, no matter how old they get.
Never abandon them or leave them out in the cold or heat,
and you’ll have a pet that’s super neat!
Always treat them with kindness and love,
for they are truly a gift from above!
Be understanding and patient with them, because they will be for you.
And never, ever forget this, my friend, for pets are people, too.
11. The Daily Routine Of My Cat © M. Tarun Prasad
Starts off in the morning, wakes up at six,
Grooms itself using its tongue and licks.
I give it breakfast with a friendly pat.
That’s the daily morning of my cat.
Returns for lunch at one o’ clock.
Eats milk rice and then goes for a walk.
Sometimes even hunts and catches a rat.
That’s the daily afternoon of my cat.
Naps after lunch outside my door.
Sleeps so deeply, perhaps even snores.
Doesn’t like the ground; it prefers a mat.
That’s the daily evening of my cat.
Wakes up refreshed and comes for dinner.
Does it eat too much? Shouldn’t it be thinner?
Eats and sleeps – hope it doesn’t get fat.
That’s the daily night of my cat.
12. My Name Is Pearl © Becky Robbins
Said the bunny to the squirrel,
Are you a boy or a girl?
The squirrel said to the bunny, I am a girl.
Nice to meet you, my name is Pearl.
Pearl said to the bunny,
What is your name?
I am also a girl, and our name is the same.
Do you want to be friends?
Indeed I do!
I would love to be friends with you.
We have the same name, and yet that is funny.
We have the same name, and I’m not a bunny.
Our name is Pearl, and we are both a girl.
But only one of us is a squirrel.
13. Three Little Piggies © Paige
I have three piggies who live in the shed
they sleep in their food bowl and eat in their bed
they drink lots of water which makes them go wee
this usually happens while they are sitting on my knee!!!
14. Pets In The North Pole © Peyton
Hear Ye, Hear Ye there is much to do,
But the reindeer up north have caught the flu!
The presents are wrapped, the sleigh is all set,
So instead of reindeer, we’re using your pets.
Just show them this note on Christmas Eve,
So when the time comes, they’ll be ready to leave.
We’ll take dogs, we’ll take snakes, we’ll take hamsters and cats.
We’ll take frogs, we’ll take lizards, we’ll even take bats!
We’ll pretty much take whatever you’ve got.
For Santa’s sleigh, we’ll need a lot.
Your pet should leave when you’re asleep,
So don’t make a sound or a peep.
When your pet comes to fly the sleigh,
I’ll make them fly, I’ll show them the way.
We’ll soar through the night up high in the sky.
Looking down at the houses as we fly on by.
Oh, and thank you for helping Santa Claus.
From your old pal, Santa Paws.
15. Fred’s Wearing My Slippers © Kathy J Parenteau
I woke with a particular feeling
I was floating on top of the ceiling,
A little surprised
when I opened my eyes
at the sight my room was revealing.
I saw thing I’d never seen
I knew this must be a dream
There on my bed
was my dog Fred
watching the TV screen.
He was munching on chips and a coke
I thought this must be a joke
as he took a big slurp
he let out a burp
and I felt a big lump in my throat.
He was wearing my slippers and pj’s
closed all the windows and shut all the shades
It was clear to see
he thought he was me
as I stared at him shocked and amazed.
My mom brought him breakfast in bed
then kissed him on top of his head
fried eggs and ham
with strawberry jam
that should have been me instead!
Then I woke up trembling with fear
while Fred was licking my ear
I threw off the sheets
and looked at my feet
then thought to myself oh dear!
Fred scratched at the door to go pee
then turned and grinned at me
when I looked at his paws
The sight that I saw
was more than I bargained to see.
There before my eyes
wearing my slippers with pride
Fred’s tail was wagging
just like he was bragging
and off he went outside!
16. It’s SNOT Funny © Paul L. Kennedy
It’s “snot” funny being an elephant when you need to blow your nose.
My trunk is long, and I have no hands as I’m sure the whole world knows.
And where would I keep my tissues, as pockets I have none,
so having a runny nose for me is really not much fun.
Another major drawback is because my trunk is so long,
it has to be blown so very hard, and I’m really not that strong.
That’s all fine when you’re an adult, and fully grown up too,
but not if you’re just a little calf like me; then it’s very hard to do.
Mother Nature is a wondrous thing, but in the case of me,
she hasn’t done me any favors, of that I’m sure you see.
The answer might just be, if only my trunk was much shorter,
but there again how would I be able to suck up any water?
This, my friends, is an evolutionary problem that I cannot see going away.
My Woolly Mammoth ancestors must have suffered in the exact same way.
But I suppose there’s no sense in complaining, if I did to whom would it be?
As our trunks have been part of being an elephant for millions of years of history
So next time you see an elephant, just remember these words that you’ve read,
and think yourself lucky that you haven’t got such a thing permanently attached to your head.
17. No More Pets! © Kathy J Parenteau
The dogs are barking at the door,
but we can’t let them in ’cause they
pooped on the floor.
It wasn’t your average pile of poo.
It was runny and wet and looked like beef stew.
I tried to clean it with a paper towel
but started to gag ’cause the smell was so fowl!
I thought to myself just how can this be,
cleaning up poopy is way worse than pee!
So I made a vow no more pets
’cause this is a mess I won’t soon forget!
18. String And Ribbon © Reilly Gandell
Thump. thump. thump.
Her tail gently lifts up, and then falls back to earth.
She lies, curled in a ball by the window.
The sun shines down on her lustrous black coat.
Her eyes are closed, letting herself to be separate from the outside world.
I reach out and stroke her gleaming fur.
Her body tenses, and then relaxes to my touch.
I look at her and realize how much I love her.
I think back to when she was only just a kitten.
How she would run around and play with string and ribbon.
And how even now, she has never completely been able to meow.
Always a cheery squeak that melts your heart.
She opens her green slits of eyes and peers into my own.
Then she lays back her head and begins her journey back to dreamland.
19. He And I – A Wolf And A Girl © Jessica Franson
The lovely cool breeze blows on me
As we run, he and I
Over meadow, hill, and tree
The scents of flowers die
The water runs over tried, beaten feet
With the many friends still to meet
Running with heart beats steady
While everything around is a melody
Colors fade, water rushes by
Solid ground under our feet
We run and birds take the sky
With Wolf friends still to meet
20. Blowing All The Way Home © Marie Tully
Spiders’ legs arrive from mars
Sitting in liquid jars
Bulging eyes mixed with black eyed peas
Surrounded in green squid cheese
Silver fish backed in a pie
Oh, what a beautiful life have I
Bloated blood clots slimley slip
Past your tonsils way too quick
Octopus ink I love to drink
Mixed with ice-cubed eyeballs
Red ants, slugs, brains and tails
Slightly grilled moths and snails
Waiter! Waiter! I must protest
My maggoty worms were not served in a nest
With belly full my leave I take
Farting and belching make no mistake
