My Companion

My companion is handsome and debonair;
He walks around with a superior air.
He is affectionate (and jealous too),
Especially when meeting someone new.
He's rather demanding and wants his own way;
When I'm going out, He'd rather I stay.
He shows me he loves me and nibbles my ear,
And snuggles and cuddles so very near.
I run my fingers through his sandy hair;
He caresses my neck to show he does care.
I love the softness of his beautiful fur
And enjoy the sound of hearing him purr.
Although he's only an affectionate cat
I guess I must make the best of that!
