||this is the
neediest cat i ever met.
she was left behind, along
with her shyer sibling, by the
caretakers who both succeeded
and preceded me. who abandons
their pets like that? many people,
unfortunately, a too common story.
she dogs my steps and leaps on my lap
as soon as i sit. i quickly learned to keep a
towel handy for how
she expresses her bliss.
