My Cat Suspects, by Tara Lynn Hawk

I believe my cat suspects,

for as of late he has been rather “distant”

He thinks other cats in the neighborhood,

I have paid more than one visit


He is secretly checking my online accounts

for catnip and furry mice purchases

Gift wrapped and sent Federal Express

To other cat addresses


He senses other kitty smells

sniffing through my purse and bedding

Diligently looking over my clothing

for other feline shedding


My cat truly suspects

he is no longer the only one

and all I can say right now

is thank goodness

his little paws cannot handle a gun!
