Percy is a cat

but he doesn’t think so.

He’s a pet

who believes we are, too.

Fancying himself

anything but what he is.

Going about

his self-appointed duties

of master,

defender of our abode,

protecting us.

Snatched from

death’s cruel grasp by

one who’d

become kitten then cat’s

true pet.

Like child, nightly

he rests upon her chest

under chin,

hugging the kind lady

who saved

his weak and tiny soul.

Nursing him

like a lost child. Suckling

Mom’s attention,

he rests in her loving arms.

Percy’s a cat

and keep it to a whisper

because he’s

staring at me now with

the oddest

look on his cute cat face.
