Foster Cat Chats

Inside Buddy Foster's World

Sundays with Simon and Sammie: Sleep

 

Today’s poem is being posted late in the day because Nanny was at Eve’s skating competition all weekend. Eve is Mitten’s mommy.  Eve won a gold medal and had the best performance in the competition.  Catgratulations, Eve, from everyone at Buddy Foster’s World.

Today’s poem was written by Nanny.  It tells about Buddy being Nanny’s guard cat and how he is always on guard, even when asleep.

Buddy Sleeping

 

For Buddy who is His Mommy’s Guard Cat

 

Sleep

He shuts his eyes and dreams soft kitten dreams.

Nocturnal dozes and those daytime naps;

That slumbering look is not quite as it seems.

 

The land of Somnus does not hold him still.

One eye alert; one nostril still on guard;

Even his whiskers sense the world at will

 

And like his feral brothers in the past

He’s  just as ever ready to defend

His home until that one breath be his last.
