The owl and the pussycat

Your claws are sharp and curved as cat claws.
Your feathers are soft and light like cat fur.
Your eyes are deep dark midnight pools of reflection.
Like me you dream of mice.
I will search the land until I find a pea green boat and some honey and money and together we will sail away.

Oh, fabulous.
I hadn't realized how truly similar cats are to owls. Kindred for sure.
