and my catku below:

sleeping kittens
on the bed
fur ball quilt
the cat leaves a Christmas present 
in the litter box
the scent of shit happening
Brooklyn felines  
                comes with the territory
behind iron gates
         an ornamental cat rests
                  casting its shadow
                           on a graden rock
                           nearby houses protected
                                            by concrete lions
kitty rubs
against your legs
         free massage
                                feline companions
                                cat ladies anonymous
                                men need not apply
          eyes of the cat witch
          hypnotize her devotees
          cuteness wins more treats
