3:30-4 AM, most mornings.
A little "Mew! - Just me, your sweet Fred."
"If you're awake, how about a belly rub?"
Marching round and round and round. Until
sensing the perfect spot.
Flops down, his 'tocks in my armpit, tail
in my face.
For stroking belly, chest and chin.
Falling asleep to all the purring.
Freddie Cat has trained me well.
