Roy & Kahlua

Just An Old Cat

Just an old cat doing what is expected,
mixed tortoise shell feline twelve years ago...
No tricks, no antics I don't make any demands,
not manipulations, we live side by side...

In fact she doesn't like me ignores my presence,
only walks away and meanders when I sit by...
I chuckle, smile, I'm a vehicle no more, no less,
I feed her, give a treat, making contentment I sigh...

Member of the household, she does her thing,
I'm pleasured her home belongs to all of us.
Acceptance being here in our domicile...
I thank our precious companion that's enough.
