A Puss’s Predicament

Written for:  Sunday Muse #174

Promised myself one
Catniptini.  Now my ears
are throbbing, my eyeballs
are spinning.  Worst of all,
they will have to look 
for me, and they know
exactly where I am–Paws 
and Stripes–my favorite
hangout.  The dog
will laugh his tail off,
and I will be housebound.
Just prrrfect.
