My Fluffy Shadow

I have a furry shadow
No matter where the light-
She follows me all through the house 
And sleeps with me at night 

My multicoloured shadow-
She scratches at the door.
She's always chasing little things 
That skip across the floor. 

My fluffy little shadow, 
She climbs into the drawers.
She hides in places out of sight
This kitty, I adore.  

I have a furry shadow,
She can curl up in a ball, 
She always lands upon her feet
When she's silly enough to fall.

I love my fluffy shadow.
I know that she loves me.
This clever kitty's not my friend-
She is my Shelly baby!

A series of noises and events.

My parents planned a holiday to Tasmania.  
I didn't know that booking flights and accommodation online could be so loud.  

They packed for the trip.  
There was banging and slamming of drawers.  
Clothes and shoes were thrown to the back of wardrobes.  
Suitcases with wheels were dragged down the hallway and parked at the front door.  
Everyone went to sleep. 

Hugs, kisses and farewells were exchanged and I went to work.  
My cat watched as Mum and Dad left for the airport.  
My phone beeped and I checked the message : "the eagle has landed, call you tonight- luv mum".  
When I arrived home that night, the cat "meowed" at me and I answered with my usual sing song voice.  

Everything was quiet.  
It was quiet for more than a week. 

My parents returned home from their holiday.  
It was the end of the quiet.
