In the evenings,
my cat likes sitting in my lap,
I give him snacks and affection.
At night he purrs while resting
on my bed, I’m beginning to learn his language.
Our cat Back, was never my cat, he was Michael’s. Since Michael’s passing, he and I are bonding beautifully. I remember only six months ago when he wouldn’t even allow me to pet him, always shunning me. I even said to Michael one evening, “Back doesn’t like me,” and Michael replied, “Don’t be silly, he loves you.” Back has turned out to be a great comfort for me, he’s gentle and quite loving.
