One soft stroke,

Is returned with a purr,

Under the chin,

Behind the ears,

He sounds like a motorbike,

He shows no fear,

A companion, who

Watches you with affection,

With criticism,

His hurt or anger,

Is returned with an arch of the back,

A leap forward,

To a spot so high,

A few steps backwards,

Retreating, into the wall behind,

After a while,

He returns to you in hunger,

Sideling with and around your legs,

His little head,

Cocked to one side,

Pleading to you,

Showing his forgiveness,

You feed him,

Never watching when he eats,

Then at dusk,

You go to bed,

Find him by your side,

Cuddled up under the covers with you he lies.
