The Cat Contemplates Again

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.

      This was an image I found onth’ web, VK, so the eyes could have been enhanced. I’m sure he’s eaten something by now.

    The local cats have decimated the bird population and even our squirrel has fallen before their teeth and claws…

    Blessed Be my friend. 🙂 ❤
