Ahhh.... that only once in a while,
when you meet the gaze of your cat,
and you tell him all the wonderful things he is to you,
how much you appreciate him,
how important he is to you,
and all the time he is locked onto your eyes,
returning your gaze,
and you just know that, this time around,
your precious furbaby is understanding you
to the fullest extent....
and you finish up your praise
to this beautiful creature
that God has blessed your home with,
with a slow blink
and a return to his face
to gaze deep into his eyes.....
And he sits back,
turns his face away,
lifts a back leg,
and starts to wash his hypoteneuse.......
