The obstinate calico queen

Inveterately, she rules over rose bush hideouts,
rock parapets, and fortified fences
as her silky mixed form stalks the garden at night
with luminescent emerald eyes.

Insatiable and insular,
myopic and inscrutable,
she rarely reveals her thoughts.

Confident but Cautious,
she'll sleuth and slink -
she'll hide and she'll think -
and hardly blink.

Mice - she dispenses.
Intruders - she commences.
She's furtive and furry,
She's haughty, she's naughty,
Yet empathy leaks
from her warm curled nuzzle.

As a warrior, she's gallant,
and her war cry warns
this yard is off limits, do - not - pass.

And she's ready to leap 'cross the lawn like a bullet
when the bell for her buffet is rung.

She's ever so playful - ever so cuddly -
this Calico Queen - long may she reign.
