The dark. The cool. The shade.

It’s late.

I’m alone.

Footsteps ahead.
I hide. Crouching silently. Waiting patiently.
Twigs crack. Birds squawk. Eyes narrow.

I watch. I stare.
It’s now. Or never.
I stretch. I pounce. I reach. I flex. I grab.

I miss.

Next time. I’ll feed.

I’m hungry.

  1. Fantastic. You know cat talk, well.
    BTW, wonderful cat. Does s/he have a name? Age? Phone number? Email? Temporary significant other? Weight? Special Skills?
    Forgive me for my over-exuberance. I just like to know… My name is Lady Gaga and I’m TWO colors, tan/brown and black.
    Excuse me for asking, but doesn’t your human feed you? Why must you hunt for scrap? Is he a cheapskate? Forgetful? Too busy for you? Are you happy?
    So you have a resume? =^.^= Mind if I speak my mind. Well, I will anyway. I think you’re the cat’s M.e.o.w. Big Boy. Maybe you’d like to come over to see me sometime? =^*.^=


    1. Hello, Lady Gaga… I have no idea who this cat is, though, unfortunately. She just turned up one day. I did leave her some food, and now she won’t go away!!!


  2. Where ARE my manners? I was brought up better than this, I assure you. I started talking to you, Tom but then this…this creature…I was that taken I spoke directly to him in my mind. =^.^= Lady G.


  3. Well now TL…Who is this handsome specimen? What a looker 🙂 So feed him already…Even just a few treaties until he makes his next catch…Have a contemplative weekend…Don’t pounce on any unsuspecting soul….VK


  4. Brilliant Tom.. and those of us who have had cats for pets, can relate well with the thoughts of how a Cats mind works.. And you have it Purrrrrrfected… 🙂

    Thoughts your way my friend.. Hugs Sue


      1. My own Cats I could tell what they were thinking.. I also think they knew exactly what we were thinking.. My Cat would know when it was time for a vets visit and take off.. 🙂
