A Touch of Catnip

Foxie, The Cat

Independent, full of curiosity
Agile, former creature of the wild
Foxie shares our home taking over the place
Demanding attention like a child

Curious by nature, held in awe
Cuddlesome, yet loving all the while
She expectantly meows for ‘tasty’ treats
At times leaving her prizes behind in style

Behind the settee, under the bed
Foxie scampers constantly without a care
Mysterious, perplexing, aggravating
Preferring to curl up in Daddy’s chair

Going from indoor to outdoor
Never looking for a new home
She emits confidence, strong will
Unhappy only when left alone

Distant and aloof, yet cherished
Quiet as though in simple meditation
Foxie resonates a soothing purr-r-r
Inviting soft cuddles and loving adoration

Finicky, picky about her food
Moody and sometimes remote
She prissily swishs her fluffy fox tail
Like a tiny, little woman in a fine fur coat!

    Foxie looks just like my tomcat Toby, I use the same brush to gather mountains of fur and he loves it under his chin just like Foxie–hmm could they be related? Adorable post-love the dog,cat photo.

  3. I sat with a silly grin on my face watching this… what is it about cats? I’m still suffering withdrawal symptoms from my little darling four months after she’s gone. I’ve washed her milk saucer since she left, but I’ve put it back by the table where I have my tray of afternoon tea, and where she would demand hers…
    Lovely lovely post, thank you Sharla…

  4. Okay…I’m smiling. Great way to start the morning. Thanks.
