Do cats dream?
Do old cats leap and play as in their kitten days?
Do crippled cats run the hills on unfettered legs?
Do indoor cats prowl the jungle wilds?
In their dreams, are sick cats whole again?
Do feral cats dream of a safe place?
Do lost cats dream of home?
Does the cat who has reached his senior years
dream of times before pain
and wonder why?
Does the cat on the path to the Rainbow Bridge
dream of what is to come,
and if so,
is it beautiful?
