For FOWC: Amuse and the MVB Prompt: Meow (because I wrote about cats). My family probably won’t get any new pets anytime soon, but maybe I will get my own dog or cat later. I like both for different reasons.
If my family gets another pet,
Should we welcome a dog or buy a cat?

Dogs are much more effusive with their joy,
Yet cats have royal presence and more peace.
Either type would be a good girl or boy.

In the meantime, here it is. Continue reading
