Needles
Clearly, my cat loves 
Sound of her claws on
The floor, click-clicking;
Scratch-click-scurry-click;
Going on all night.

She’s manicured
Her needle-like
Claws, her great pride.

Her whetstones,
Furniture
And carpets.

Outside
She’ll need

claws....

Lounging licking leaping
Prancing pouncing peeking

Pretty purring preening
Curiosity kitty killing
Nine long lives living...

Premium Member Bright Birds
Deceptive, drowsy,
the gray cat, Tempus, in doldrums
lazes, purring, stretching.
I have watched him:
