Ted is a very old cat.
Pretty much blind and mostly deaf.
A tad unsteady on his pins, he’s nonetheless of robust appetite.
His voice is loud and strong.
Ted is not fond of being alone.
Fortunately he sleeps a lot.
Time passes without much notice.
He seems to wake just as Fairy Godmother is on her way.
She leaves the blind up so he can look out for her.
When she comes, he’ll eat again.
She’ll rub him all over with a warm washcloth.
Kisses and snugglers.
After, there’s surprise extra in the bowl to finish up.
When he comes out from the kitchen she’s gone.
Licking her scent off his fur reminds him.
When that’s done, he’s comfy and sleepy.
He’ll wake just before she drives up in the morning.
And be waiting in the window.
