While 10pm nears they gather once again in the kitchen and await their evening snack. Whether salmon or crunchies they wait with patience and anticipation.
Older cats are happiest with a life full of routine and consistency. They thrive on that.

He blinks upon the hearth-rug
And yawns in deep content
Accepting all the comforts
That providence has sent

Louder he purrs and louder
In one glad hymn of praise 
For all the night's adventures
For quiet restfull days 

Life will go on forever
with all that cat can wish
warmth, and the glad procession
of fish & milk & fish

Only the thought disturbs him
He's noticed once or twice
That times are somehow breeding
A nimbler race of mice
hugs, Deb
