Message From A Cat

1b02ced00cfec2faedc2c045caa29187

I catch my cat asleep

Dreaming, head down

Concealing a moustache

Buried in his bed

A paw curled over a nose

Hind legs tucked in warmth.

His ears twitch,

Flutter, and slant.

Eyes blink, bat, while closed

A muffled meow

Slips out trembling lips

I know he dreams of me

The wizard of dry food

Good witch of treats

Dionysus of catnip

Then, I am also

Evil magus of loud voice

Mystic of flea medication

Charon to the veterinarian

Still, after all I put

Him through, he looks up

With those blue eyes

Forgiving me for

All my offenses

Thanking me for

All my kindnesses

Head butting my leg

Brushing my legs

Letting me know

Our love is unconditional

And forever

As a human

My cat reveals to me

A skill, a craft, seemingly

Buried deep in dreaming

That periodically wakens

Then, dozes off……it’s

An awareness I share with

All other wizards and witches.

Humanity

  1. Pets and animals in general remind us to live in the moment (apologies in using an too overused phrase). They are so preoccupied with and really enjoying the small things in life. They are completely immersed in what they are doing. Then pass out in a deep sleep after having such excitement all day! Lots to learn from them. I really like this post.

  2. This is purrfect! Puts well into words how I feel whenever I groom her and she gets irritated; when I clip her claws and she gets defensive; her protest when I administer her medication, yet she lets all her discomfort go a moment later, and nothing changes between us. Thank you for writing this. Cat people: they understand cats and, once in a while, other cat people. 😉

  3. lol. Thanks. Mr. Fry (adopted and previously named) just crawled onto a little bed I made for him underneath my desk. He’s sleeping. Every now and then he looks up at me with very happy blue eyes.
