To Kitty Love

As you grow kitty I worry for you

what pressures and pleasures await you

what pitfalls in the form of fantasies

what tom cats, what pretensions

what false promises of love taunt you

kitty my love

I am a progressive parent

yet in my post modern angst

my heart trembles at your union with a local rowdie tomcat

of no significant pedigree

no trace of parenting

no culture and no promise of support

I can not jump the wall as you do

to rush to you and counsel you when you are in heat

( not that you will listen!)

I can not rush to rescue you from hooligans with long tails

glistening eyes and many purrs

I can only watch as you suffer kitty love

the pangs of loneliness after momentary heights of passion

my love,therefore, in your maturity of all but 6 months

I advice you to exercise caution and never forsake judgement

I have myself not been a success in love nor much in living

yet life has kindly taught me many lessons

the first and foremost being trust not  every tail, wagging or otherwise

not every one who purrs is a friend

the paws that love may also pounce, so be prepared!

I might be old yet old wisdom is as pure as gold

hence trust my words, choose your love wisely

its just your scent and your firm body that attracts them

look for the one who values your soul

that shines through even in the night

look for the one who will share his fish

the bowl of kitty food and more

who will be around to ensure your kids

grow up healthy, wealthy and wise

security comes before love

prudence before passion

by your tail, I promise

not a word I said is fabricated

these are written in time old books

sacred words of wisdom from your ancestors

I am a mere interpreter, believe me for your own good.
