    Haven’t seen many of the usual indoor/outdoor cats about. With the rainy, cold weather I think they are staying indoors more. Smart!

      Yes, if they are smart!!! … we dipped into the very low 20s last night, and expected again tonight … last night, I was watching my porch cat to make sure he stayed on the heated bed … my other one — goes underneath the house across the street — hopefully she stays warm as well.

    Lovely haiku – a moment of real change and great words used to parallel the cat and skies.

    But her’s not a black cat! Her’s a gray cat! But she’s still a fine cat, and so is your poem. 😉

    (I do like how she blends with the concrete….)
