The cat owns nothing
he’s the solitary one
who owns all of you
The Egyptians worshipped him
the silent watcher of souls

    This human has three masters. Although, the smallest one rules and nobody disputes it.

    Your post brought to my mind an old song, “All of me.” It goes in part, “All of me…why not take all of me? You took the part that once was my heart, so why not take all of me?” My cat Maxwell has all of me. That’s for sure.
