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.
