The silky softeners of her fur against the back of my hand;

Rich feathers swimming through my fingers.

Her purrs so deep that they vibrate through my body,

From the split ends of my hair to the tips of my toes.

To appreciate the stillness of sitting requires patience.

A patience that the world lacks,

Because it moves too fast for the purring of a cat.

And the way fingers stroke her back.
