Morning routine

Fluffy, cuddly and demurely wide of eye,
from the red carpet like a dropped Teddy bear,
waiting to strike the nearest passer-by,
my cat directs her falsely blameless stare.
The dog dances past, impatient for a walk;
I brew my coffee and consider my day
as the cat continues to observe and stalk.
At last, with flicking tail, she strikes her prey!
