#sol15 Two Cats Not Mine


Two cats.

Not mine.

Huddled, cuddled

asleep on a patio chair.

Two cats.

Not mine.

Ears alert

Awakened, Aware.

Two cats,

Not mine.

Gaze inside

Are you there?

Two cats,

Not mine.

Wishing, hoping

Will you let us in?

Two cats,


Tails snapping,

No way; go away.

  1. I think cats choose us…we are their people; they aren’t our pets. I don’t think this because I am a crazy cat lady…my cat has just staked a claim on me and allows me to sleep in her bed.
