A nightmare in a rocking chair.
The cat awoke from its long lasting nap,
It stretched in the lap of the old woman.
It wanted to be scratched. It purred and snuggled.
But then the smell of food got its attention.
It leaped down and went to the bowl to catch the few scraps left.
Then it went back to the lap.
No petting occurred even though he meowed.
Wake up owner and pet me he meowed.
But his murmurs went unanswered.
Ten days later they found the old woman because of the smell.
The cat was very hungry but at least it did not starve.
It eat tough old flesh with little meat but at least it was some substance.
