Her Eyes Accuse

I’ve been out all day,
so she’s been in.
I arrive back home
in early evening cold.

She doesn't want food first.
She runs to the back door.
I let her into her courtyard garden.
She wants me to come too,
but I’m busy unloading shopping.

She sits, statuesque,
on top of her mini-trampoline
(yes of course it’s hers)
until dusk has fallen.

  3. Love the mind of a cat.. I wonder sometimes if cats thrive on being watchers.

  4. I agree with Brudberg, cats survive by thinking things out, watching, learning and coping with the world...and being head of the household!

  5. Love the photo; you've certainly captured the fickle nature of our feline friends. Life seams to be an endless round of unpacking shopping.

  7. Ooh. Lovely. :-)
    I've always been intrigued by cats. We have this petite cat that prowls around in my college. It's such a curious creature.

  9. She does look a little bit reproachful - bless her - i did wonder about the trampoline in another post you showed us.. how nice it would be to have a private space to jump around a little - I hope she forgave you and you at least got a small cuddle or purr

    1. She's pretty much non-vocal, doesn't purr – but did forgive me quickly and came in to have a big smooch. Let's just say I've had the mini-tramp (aka bouncer) a lot longer than I've had her, but she believes it is for her convenience. She lets me bounce on it sometimes.

  15. Everything is hers, including you. And the look on her face says that the sooner everyone understands that fact, the sooner all will be well.

    I love her posture. And your capture of it.
