When mistakes are made

Having taken a running leap, 
My cat slides into the slippery rug, 
Which then wraps itself around him. 
So he settles in, wearing the white fringe 
 Like an Elizabethan ruff 
And pretending he meant to do this all along. 
Knowing it would make a pleasing portrait, 
He waits patiently for me to find my phone 
And photograph him, then leaps out of his nest 
And runs off in pursuit of his sister, 
Howling as he goes, rather like a human, 
Who, having made a mistake, 
Seeks someone else to loudly blame
