Basic info about one cat who lives in Tyrone, GA.
- •She lives for treats, but will tolerate (or sometimes insist upon) bouts of human affection.
- •She's a bit of the outdoorsy type, napping now in shafts of this dawn's light, upon red GA clay and American leaves of grass. The fitful clover is, by association, Irish? Irish-American. FACT: most clovers own 3 leaves, but a lucky one might spy the kinda rare 4-leafed iteration. TIP: Encase these in Scotch Tape and gift them to a grand-nephew.
- •Her name is Tachikoma, and I sing 🎶Tachi-koma-ko🎶 (from Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex) at her.
- •She is the colors of a forest floor, except for the aquamarine of her round eyes, and quite chubby. i.e. gorgeous
- •(I can't tell if the neighbor's cat, a viciously territorial creature named (by Stephen King?) Mr. Nickels, is her bully and/or sexual partner.)
- •Once, after a terrific storm, I saw her drinking rain from the bowing stems of long grass.(Now our municipally-mandated— for to, thank God unsuccessfully, price-out black folk—acre is mown, after the fashion of long-dead, European nobles, though unlike them, we 'big-d Democratic' Americans mow it ourselves, or haggle with the neighbor boy, Chris.)
- •In her youth, she was called Grace. She lived in a home dominated by a manic woman, who was overly fond of vacuuming. She thusly justly feared all humans, and spent her first months in our care hiding beneath every and all available beds.
- •...BONUS FACT: Cats are, like me, you, my grass, clover, and all other things known and un, wrought by and in stardust! Bye
