Why I Pet Sit

I don’t want to get up
there’s one against my thigh
another at my feet
and something warm behind my knee

They follow me where ever I go
to the bathroom, definitely to the kitchen
my meals have a close audience of three
it’s never just me

I wouldn’t have it any other way
for the two weeks with this pack of three
and their two kitty housemates
this is why I do what I do
