The Best of AGT: My Fluffy Shadow

This month is Author's Choice Best Of AGT.  I'm going to repost 4 of my favourite posts.  This one is a poem I wrote about Shelly in September 2013.  You can see the original post here.

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 cat, my Shelly!
