Cats for Breakfast
There They were; facing me, both cats,
Side by side at the breakfast table,
Lapping up their lowfat yogurt,
While I was lapping up mine.
My family thinks it's disgusting.
My family thinks I'm crazy.
My family doesn't understand.
I hate to eat alone.
William's Whimsical Words:
The sound of the lapping was deafening.
