Muse Cat

Artwork: Collette

Inky:  Muse Cat has disappeared.

I at first believed one of the construction workers had let her out on their many, many ins and out of the house.  But she would not have wandered off, after all she has been my constant companion for almost 12 years.     I have checked under the house, all around the yard, checked the couches, the easy chairs, the recliner, all the closets and cabinets, and drove the neighborhood calling her – she always came to my call – but no Muse Cat.

The house is so empty.   I am hoping she comes home but my Mom tells me that she’s too old for such a journey.   Doesn’t matter, I’m still going to wait.
