My cat sits with me while he
Eyes the new tower bought for him.
He looks so sad as he muses about
His old hammock that I threw away.
I’m not heartless…really I’m not!
The old one had hole and couldn’t
Be resuscitated no matter how I tried
Now he hates me for not keeping
his old, falling apart bed.
Today he just doesn’t understand.
But food is his go to so I will give
Him lots of love and lots of treats
And maybe he’ll forgive me until
The next time his favorite toy, pad,
or food disappears. Hope so.
