Our Kids

One cat is getting old
still serene and aloof
but now he wants his back scratched
and he can't jump
to the top of the 8 foot post
from a standing start
or any kind of start

The other cat
no longer gives us a wide birth
allows us to scratch
but not her belly
she claims the bed
all of it
though she's no wider than a boot

The dog ignores both of them
cats don't matter
food, walks, and mom
nothing else matters
