Home Sweet Home

Murphy peers out from Knox’s crate

where she lies, ensconced,

purring with satisfaction,

having claimed right of occupancy.

 I don’t think his training includes

the peaceful resolution of differences,

but when he comes home, we’ll see.

  1. Had to smile at this one, Joan. The little ones do claim their territories. 🙂 My new cat, Jack, has after nine months finally taken to sitting in my lap, Chloe’s previous domain. But they co-exist.
