My Cat

I jump, suddenly distracted by his petitioning meiow.
I turn, annoyed by the carnivorous edge to that whine.

‘What!?’ I say, ‘I’ve already fed you! Just an hour ago!
He stops and stares back, transfixed by my odd reaction.

I stop and stare back, and we understand each other.
Yeah, I’m the vegan, and you’re the carnivore.

It’s not your job to scare me.
