Warm bones

We live with two cats, an old gray tabby and a young calico. When the tabby yowls, the calico makes sure to check on him. She is also the one who keeps the cat box clean.

The big gray tabby
On occasion
Finds his way
We need a ranch for him
As well.
Yesterday my beloved
Carried him downstairs
So he could be close
To food and water
And litter.
Then he climbed
Back to bed
In the living room.
His voice
Is still strong.
We hear him
The house.
Now he sleeps
In the sun
It warms
His bones.
