A Cat Nudges Me

Rating: 3.5

the cat climbs up
to the chair
a foreleg
nudges me
as i eat

it wishes to
share my food

bit by bit
i throw
left over of
fried prawns
squids....

and it quietly eats
and keeps
nudging me
when it wants more
like a friend

just a simple description of a simple encounter until the very end...love the 'like a friend', sometimes friends take while not giving...thats what I got from this, though I could be wrong

A poems of vivid description...I can visualize your friend and his antics. I also have a cat that nudges to get a dinner treat. An enjoyable poem.

It is an honor to receive such nudgings from a creature, of whom some cultures regard as royalty... a cat can refuse offerings of food if he deems you untrustworthy or a stranger, even if he is hungry. So a cat has blessed you first with his presence, and then with allowing you to feed him... a fine human you are indeed! Thank you for loving a cat... Hugs, Lee
