Hey black cat

Why is my screen door heavy to push

Oh...your leaning against it

Resting on my step, the rising sun warming your furry black body

If you would move, I could feed you

As I open the metal door

You rub up against the edge of the door over and over

You get off the step, stretch and yawn

I put food in your dish, water in your bowl

What's this

You left a dead bird at my door

How thoughtful of you

After all the dead mice you left at my door

You are changing gifts that you bring

But please you don't have to

Really....its not necessary

Looking at me with those green eyes

What are you thinking of

What goes through your mind

Go eat, then prowl around the property

Up into the woods to wander about

Only to find you again on my step

When I come home to feed you again

What is that in your mouth

It looks like spaghetti

No....you have a small snake in your mouth

Black cat...what am I going to do with you

I can relate this 88, being a slave to a tabby!

Thanks for reading. He's just a cat that is always around.

Hmm, sounds like Pitac, a past acquaintance of mine. (PITAC = Pain In The Ass Cat)

He's not really a pain. A bit "loopy" . Thanks for reading.

I am owned by two silver and white felines. They are Feline Herpes Positive so are quarantined for life but so much of this one describes things they do indoors. My gifts are not alive but they are gifts none the less. One likes to groom my forehead and the other likes to nuzzle me.

This cat is a feral cat that I have been feeding for over a year. Was feeding my neighbors cat and he showed up. Gave him a little of the food.....and the rest is history. Thanks for reading.
