Dog’s Eye ViewMy nails clicked on the wood floorwhen I entered his room.He sat in his favorite chairthe silver box in his laphis fingers stabbing here and there.It was timeI was sure of it.I yawned loudlyhoping to draw his attentionaway from the box.He looked at meshook his head and continued tap, tap, tapping.I stretched out on the rug by his feetmy body shaking with disappointmentmy whine soft but persistent.He sighedclosed the lid to his boxand motioned for me.I ran to the doorplacing myself closest to where he would need to go.“Come on, girl.Time to feed the horses.”Rick Stepp-Bolling
I love the opening line " nails clicked. .." that along with line 13, tap tapping .. Really enjoyed Dog's Eye View.

“19 Year Old House Cat”I prefer the soft placesMy nest on the bedOr the back of the couchThe crook between his knees when he sleeps.
Up on the cat walkI take a nap all dayUp high out of the wayI can see you from hereIt is comfortableto be so high up Where I have my private perchTo be a predator to catchThe prey below
I like how the cat poems show them sleeping—so accurate.
