Not everyone travels, in fact most don't.

This isn't Abbott's cat, but it's a cool pic of a cat.

The cat explodes
from my lap.
She doesn't like road games.
She's an indoor cat.

Back arched,
hissing and spitting
at the TV. Watching
for Timber Joey.

I jump. She eyes me
warily. Gauging
my mood.
Sounders win.

I settle back
on the couch. She jumps,
curls, then bats
my scarf.

We purr.
