Cat Lick

Illuminated by sunshine

Caressed by a September breeze

The fastidious cat licks her paw

In the shade of the apple trees

Precise and systematic

Starting with her face

She rubs her nose from back to front

Till every hair’s in place

The paw is reapplied

The feline rubs from ear to eye

She licks the paw again

And then she starts the other side.

Tosca asleep

They wouldn’t let me take a photograph of them grooming, so here is Tosca asleep.
