I will sit on the stairs and gently wait for you.
I will watch as you walk over towards me
and rub your body and head against the bannisters.
If you wish you can come closer and sniff my fingers.
You might lightly brush your tail against my still arm.
I won't move, I'll wait for you.
Another time I might lay out some string on the landing,
so you can be a wild cat and pounce on it
and kill it again and again.
I want to see your fierceness surface
and your playfulness.
You are safe with me.
