The Company of Cats

The Company of Cats

If you were comfortable in your own house,

On a day with such terrible weather, raining

Cats and dogs, why wouldn’t you stay at home?

Sometimes you need to hear real human voices.

To exchange pleasantries while you drink your coffee,

Or pay and accept change for your purchases.

Sometimes you just need to touch base with humanity.

To inform yourself that you are still a vital part of it.

Then you can go home, refreshed, revitalised, renewed,

Back to the company of cats, that unconditional love,

That shines from those beautiful, inscrutable eyes.

Oh they will want feeding right away – that’s a given,

But afterwards, they will sit on your knee, purring.

Ears twitching as they listen to every word you say.

I love my two cats and they in their turn, love me.

Both abandoned, they are grateful I took them in.

Now we are a mutual appreciation society,

Riley, prince of cats, Rio, cheeky, mischievous and me!
