THE CAT AND THE MOON
by: W. B. Yeats (1865-1939)
All my cats showed up tonight! Mamie was sitting on the rooftop silhouetted by the night sky, looking very catly and beautiful.
Red has undergone quite a change. Lately he not only comes almost every night, but he runs to the bench with the other cats and when I call their names he does a drop and roll like Louie-Louie. I always find that so charming. Then he shares a pile of food with the other cats instead of hanging back and waiting till everyone is through. I wonder if our encounter in the parking lot before he skittered into the storm drain made a difference.
No vet visits today. I thought my daughter was going to call me, but didn't realize my house phone ringer had gotten turned off and my cell needed charging. Graycie will have to wait again.
