a local giant
Today is National Cat Day (10/30).
My cat is but a local hero,
admired for his fascination with people
and their private conversations, which,
he assumes, are all about him.
He further assumes that all he surveys is his
to chew, scratch, and claw,
or, if all else fails, to lie upon while snoring loudly.
You may have your national cat. As for me, I’ll stick with Emil.
