Leopard by Ben ColeyBen Coley,  Africa Geographic

 The fat cat on the mat
   may seem to dream
of nice mice that suffice
   for him, or cream;
but he free, maybe,
   walks in thought
unbowed, proud, where loud
   roared and fought
his kin, lean and slim,
   or deep in den
in the East feasted on beasts
   and tender men.

The giant lion with iron
   claw in paw,
and huge ruthless tooth
   in gory jaw;
the pard, dark-starred,
   fleet upon feet,
that oft soft from aloft
   leaps on his meat
where woods loom in gloom–
   far now they be,
   fierce and free,
   and tamed is he;
but fat cat on the mat
   kept as a pet,
   he does not forget. 

 J.R.R. Tolkien

Cat is a poem written by Samwise Gamgee and recorded in the Red Book of Westmarch.
Pards were feline creatures from the wooded lands of the East, only mentioned in Hobbit poetry.
