Waiting to take the cat to the vet

We usually don*t board the cat at Christmas.  This year, when we*re gone, the counter tops will be installed.  So instead of staying in the basement, the cat will be at the vet*s.

Soon and very soon
We will take the cat
To stay
With the vet.
He is completely unaware
Of the plans,
Curled up
In my lap,
Eyes at half mast.
The cat carrier waits
In the partial kitchen.
It waits.
I wait.
The cat is perfectly content.
Just wait.
