CONTENTMENT

 

 

I am a cat.
You are a human.
We should not trust each other.
But we do.
I am content with that.

I am a cat.
You are a human.
I do not know when the first of my species came to you.
I do not know when your species allowed them to.
But, I am content with that.

I am a cat.
You are a human.
I chose to play with you in a pet store.
You chose to play with me in that same store.
I was more than content with that.

I am a cat.
You are a human.
A lady put me in your arms to see how it felt.
You rubbed my tummy and I started to purr.
I was really happy about that.

I am a cat.
You are a human.
Years have gone by and I still lay on your lap.
You roll back your chair and we both take a nap.
What could be better than that?

I am a cat.
You are a human.
You give me “noogies” and rub my ears.
I let you hold my paws with no fears.
We are both content with that.
I am a cat.
You are a human.
I come to your office and interrupt your work.
You forgive me for that and give me hugs before I let you work.
I am pleased that you do.

I am a cat.
You are a human.
I sleep on the couch by your desk while you work.
I don’t see you smile as I snore in my sleep.
But, I’m still happy that you do.

I am a cat.
You are a human.
We are an odd couple.  I bug you for “noogies”,
And you happily agree.  Why I don’t know.
But I am forever grateful that you do.

I am a cat.
You are a human.
