Our cat assistant is learning
how to knit perhaps
“teaching herself”
is more accurate

as we have no desire
to encourage
this perling aspiration
for our high-strung cat

I used to wonder
why that string puzzle
was “cat’s cradle”
when no cat needs a cradle
each has her own
or can construct one
or help you make one
with materials at paw.

Now I know
any tangle of wool
or string could be
a cat’s cradle or
a cat’s obsession
or not
as she walks away.
