Another Friday night with no humans around,
But, I do have my newest and truest friend.
Maxwell, a beautiful white and black kitten,
Brings me pleasure that seems not to end.
He tries to help me eat my cupcake,
I have to keep it above his proud head.
Chocolate is lethal to cats like him,
At least that’s what my new vet said.
It’s not a romance, as we define them,
But for both of us, it was love at first sight.
So, I’ll wile away the hours playing with him,
For he keeps me from being lonely tonight.
