The Cat at the Vet

(C) 2011 by Howard Dart Humeston


I’m only a cat
I know that very well.
Spending half a thou
on me wasn’t your plan.

Cats are a dime a dozen
You can find another one
easy. Cheaper.
After all
I am only a cat.

I only ask you to consider one thing
A tiny little thing.
Probably not even important.
I am your cat.
And I love you better than 
any human can.
