Pinkie is not tamed
snarling, biting a close hand
warning done, she purrs
senryu by M. Nakazato LaFreniere
I admit Pinkie is schizoid. When she was a kitten, she once brought home a baby rattlesnake. Scared mom who killed it right away.
When you try to pet Pinkie she doesn’t know whether she should bite you or purr so she does both. She prefers to be petted with your foot. Crazy cat. But if you’re sick, she’ll lie by you all day, keeping you company without complaining. That’s when she knows exactly what to do.
