check and mate


Squeaky door opens

Sauntering feline enters

Announcing bedtime

Claiming the best spot

On the pillow for my head

Leaving me no choice

Into the kitchen

To shake the jar of cat treats

We exchange places

  8. While Lena is eating her treats on the kitchen table, I race back to the bedroom and shut the door in order to get a good night’s sleep. Otherwise, she wakes her slave (me) again around two to go rattle her out more treaties. If I do that, I’m then wide awake and can’t get back to sleep until just before the alarm goes off at six. It’s a cat’s life! We should be so lucky!
