Her Sixth Gotcha Day

Her Sixth Gotcha Day
Jessica Marie

Her eyes are fixed upon the marble table
as she sits upon the wooden side chair; 


looking to make her entrance, rather unstable; 
her emerald eyes study the plates and silverware. 
Yet she is unaware that the plates are for her, 
celebrating six years that we have been together; 
And from being wiry and scared to calm and demur—
we have survived the storms and rocky weather! 
I love to hear her purr, yet well I know
that meows are silent, but cuddles are love; 
I never want to let her go; 
watching her bask in the sun looking at doves. 
As she hops onto the table to discover,
the cake with the candle, to her is uncovered.

    1. I remember how wiry she was when we first adopted her. She was 3 and Olivia was 13 or 14. Olivia just cuddled right up. Mimi isn't too much of a cuddler, but she'll keep you company. Just don't hold her - she HATES being held, lol. It's amazing how time flies.

    1. Thank you. I'm working on the story of their Gotcha Day now. I was so busy yesterday that I didn't even have the chance to!
