My Cat (poem)

Little paws

so perfect and wild

tufts of fur

shooting wildly between pink and brown pads.


Yellow and black

and sometimes green eyes

staring into my soul,

both dependent and free.


Colors all mixed

white, black, brown, and gray

with faintest pink nose.

Curled up in a ball

so secure

and at peace.


Claws never cut

click loudly on wooden floors

grip the mattress

dig into my skin.


Her hair I carry with me

on every shirt and jacket

a constant reminder

of the love I have.

Beautiful and loving poem about your kitty and the reality of living with and loving cats. I saw a comment you made on another's hub and knew I had to visit your pages.
