in the morning
the bony old yellow cat
demands his breakfast
before my eyes are coffee open
then
he lies in the sun
and sleeps

he eats when I do
taking food from my plate
not sharing his with me
no small talk
just the sound of his crunching

he scratches himself
when and where he pleases
he smells bad
his toenails need to be cut

at night he is in bed early
he sleeps at the foot
his back to me
no cuddling
no goodnight kisses
just a cold shoulder

thank God I’m not married

rigid frame with very little chrome
clamped to my skin like freckles

You may think you are not married, but the cat may disagree!

Loved your poem, and your cat even more.  However, you were wrong about one thing, (smile).  Your cat doesn't smell.  You just think he does because there is something wrong with your sense of smell.  I hope you haven't told him he smells as that would hurt his feelings.

Giggles at icebox's reply!

Kate, I would love to ask you to give your cat kisses and cuddles, but you say he doesn't like them, so please tell him that he sounds wonderful and full of character.

With all this pleasant verse, it leaves one wondering, what his name is?

Thank you so much aujussy wolf.
  
Glad you liked the ending Sir Sy.     

Ahhh…icebox, the cat knows I am married, the rascal.

Diana, I kiss and love these furry ones all the time… but they both refuse to be touched in bed. Who knows? Cats are their own people.

And icebox’s record stands Martie. He’s right again. Cats are awesome, aren't they?

Lester, this shining example of a cat’s name is George. Thank you for asking.
