My Cat

My cat walks slowly through the house,
measuring each step,
examining the nooks and crannys,
and I can almost visualize,
the crown of diamonds on her head,
the purple velvet cape
trimmed with ermine
trailing behind her.

When I call her name,
she lifts her tail
in acknowledgment,
telling me she heard me
but continuing her noble walk.

When she naps on my chest
and gives me a lick,
I feel privileged indeed
to share my life
with a cat.
