Being a Cat



For those of you

who are not cats,

it's not as easy as you might think

being a cat.

All those decisions:

whether to sleep

sixteen hours a day

or seventeen,

eat fourteen balanced meals,

or skip one to stay trim,

chase a lizard or a sparrow,

fight in a rolling ball of fur,

or just sit there thinking about the prospect,

and taking a nap to ease the tension,

going in and out twenty times a day,

and taking time to ponder each trip seriously.

Any way you look at it,

being a cat

is not as easy as having a man by your side,

while leading a dog’s life.

So to speak.
