P e r c h e d
Ready to spring into action
Clever as he amuses himself
all the way
This is who I met as he eyed me cautiously.
Sized me up with those pale green eyes, curious.
Not too affectionate, but willing to connect with a touch.
PERCY-of many breeds, with proud Latin name.

I wrote this poem after meeting this amazing animal. He is a rescue cat that my nieces fell in love with. He is thought to be part Persian and has an abnormally long tail. A kitten when they brought him home, and 6 months old when I met him. He made quite an impression on me, wrapping his long tail around my heart. And this poem came leaping out of me on the trip home.
