The cat sits at the edge of the tub,
Staring at me sitting in the water.
Suddenly she launches
Onto my inhospitable lap.
I shriek .
Out as quickly as she jumped in…
And settles down onto my empty pants lying on the floor….
Giving new meaning to
Finding comfort in an empty lap…
Look before you leap,
But if you find yourself in hot water,
Jump out quickly!
