A Bit Of Respect

This goes out to Ziggy, Pettie, Jessie Boo,

and I’ll not be forgetting small Kookie too.

When things get me down, when wrath I incur,

you make me feel better by giving a purr.

You are happy to see me, I don’t know what for;

a stroke on the head and you’re kneading the floor.

You’re cherished forever, have a place in my heart

and I couldn’t imagine us being apart.

I've been feeding a feral cat for over a year now. He's gotten use to me, he follows me around the grounds like a dog, but sometimes he will take a swipe at me and act "loopy".
I will give him a special dinner tonight.

Well, one can never go wrong praising cats in poetic fashion. I've had many a generation, and would sing their praises - but I have a hairball in my throat at the moment. A fine and just paean...! SPP
