On the Prowl

 A nonet has nine lines. The first line has nine syllables, the second line eight syllables, the third line seven syllables, etc... until line nine that finishes with just one syllable. It can be on any subject and rhyming is optional.

white whiskered kitten cries and purrs
wrinkles tiny nose at twin
scratches mirror double
meows at smudge when

hunter
food.
