My Feline Child

Leslie Catherine Taylor,

my furry feline child,

will be my child forever,

half-wild, all-cat, half-mild.

+++++

She has joined the pantheon

of great cats I have known–

Jean-Luc, Harry, Charlemagne,

Caesar, and Duncan; done

+++++

are their lives on Earth yet they

remain my furry kinfolk;

those feline monarchs do reign

in my heart; death can’t revoke

+++++

their status as cat children

in my mind.  This tuxedo cat,

with her determination

to leave feral ways at

+++++

the altar of the past, has

chosen the better part.

And the black on her nose, paws’

pads, and her fur is art-

+++++

ful.  Her nose is pink and black,

her fur coat distinguished,

her manner no sweetness lacks;

she’s all I could have wished.
