when giving a friend my new address
she was surprised
that she already was familiar with that address
and she could let herself in
as she already possessed a key.
she used to care for a little black cat who lived there,
her client happened to be
the woman who sold me my condo
there is a new little black cat living there,
there must be something about the house
that needs a little black cat living there
to feel like home
I think they would have liked each other.

and told them

insist on helping me
with the process of

“cats can work out mathematically
the exact place to sit that will cause most inconvenience.”
something tells me that
perhaps the wrong cat
drank the rescue remedy calming drops
from the water bowl.
one is facedown in a bowl of seashells
while the other, (my intended target)
is busy outside
standing up on two feet
looking in at me through the window
and meowing loudly.

one of my daughter’s long-legged black cats
who i collectively refer to as ‘the nathans,’
enjoying a swing.

he has never expressed a desire to be a dancer.

when glenn had to go through painful surgery
and was at last home again
tiny sweet olive
approached him gently
touched her head to his
let him eat their favorite food first
and moved quietly
next to him
at his special place by the window
just lying there
for hours on end
while he recovered
the quiet comfort
of their tender friendship.

animals exhibit other qualities
connected with the social instincts
which in us would be called moral.”
