How To Love A Cat

Put your hands away
Pretend they don’t exist
Start with your face
But don’t stop there

When she curls up on your legs
Do not reach out to her
Feel her love through your legs
Feel your love through her

If she curls up on your chest
You may want to nuzzle her face
(Take care to stop if she pulls away)

But, also, stop —
Feel the love
Coursing back and forth

Through your skin
Through her purr
Between your hearts
