Sated

lazy, long afternoon preening sphinx-like catches a stray scent aha! dinner!... stealth-creep agonizingly slow, 'til, target in sight she springs... afterward, sated lightly licks the corners of her whiskers curls back into her no-hammock

I see her and recognize her swiftness and her stealth.

Oh, have seen this process many a time - the life of a cat! Such fun Gerson from the pen of an observant eyewitness! Do you have a kitty?

I had a wonderful kitty growing up. When we were first married, adopted a kitten who presented us with three kittens! Have wonderful memories of a friend's cat - the divine miss "honeybuns" - buns for short - who always sat next to us when we visited. Many more memories - too many for a short comment!

1st wife and I used to have four kitties before we had kids. That was a long time ago, but I still remember... How about you?

Gershon, I love cats and cat poems and this is a great one! Sounds like my dear old cat Jeff. When I hustle food for him and call out "Eats", he bounds from wherever he is perched and digs in.
