OctPoWriMo 4 - A Feline Love Story

Today's prompt is "_____________ and other strange animals." While, at first glance, my piece may not seem so "strange," I hope I succeeded in putting more into it than appears at a surface read.

A Feline Love Story

A ginger met a tabby on a warm September day;
With lifted ears and curving tails, they greeted one another.
Their noses touched, they wound around each other like ballet,
They spoke a language older than the sweet savour of summer.

Together stalking, playing, they found joy in company,
And never were apart for more than a few minutes’ time
Naps were warmer, bathing better, life truly carefree
With a warm body beside you, you can meet anything.

  2. The first thing that came to mind on reading your last line was 'Gin a body meet a body comin' thro' the rye?', that beautiful Burns classic. This is just what I needed today - cats and something sweet and warm.

  3. The tabby sounds very handsome.

  4. I like the last line best. Indeed.
