My friend's spirit is like my cat, she
sleeps all day, but not under my bed
like some fur lined creatures. She prowls 
the house watching TV in the black of 
night and only stops for another bite to eat. 
She feeds on frozen dinners not like my 
Queenie who dines on fresh chicken and 
turkey to keep her gorgeous tabby coat 
glistening gray. 
Being in AA she drinks only water but
still rolls around on the floor, and snacks 
throughout the day. She is an indoor lady 
and doesn't want to traipse the streets, 
probably due to early childhood trauma. 
There is no argument... she is the Queen 
of the house.

    I enjoyed this! I'm a cat lover with two (drama) queens so I can relate to how they act. I really like the way you describe your friend's spirit's life and compare it to a cat's. It's clever!
