Fatal Wonder

Fatal Wonder

Where’s that naughty kitty been?
Even though it’s nearly ten,
she’s not had a single nibble
of the tuna and the kibble
that I put outside the door
long ago—two hours or more.
If dead from curiosity,
she’s passed her illness onto me!

      It’s actually my boy cat that disappears for days at a time. They started out as 4 kittens invading my wall. Now after a few years we are down to two. Every time he doesn’t come back, I wonder. She seems the most adventurous but he is the disappearer.

    Ah, a cat’s curiosity is the worst especially with what they can bring home. Imagine having that curiosity spread lol.

    I say that as a person with many cats, and this is too accurate. I worry about my (indoor) cats if they’re just acting the slightest bit off!

    I never read poetry thinking it is true or personal – but see from the comments this is – I really hope the kitten turns up!
    This was moving even not assuming it was “true.”
