Noll on Aspiring to be Cheetah

pencil drawing by Kareen

The Cheetah....
a singular creature
of speed, agility, rare beauty,
dynamic markings and slender grace.

This post is dedicated to Tuck & Squeaker
and every kitty who aspires to be Cheetah.
----------
When you race through the house with enormous bursts of speed and energy, your long limbs and strong strides conquering space and time, when you climb on high to survey your assumed world or sleep secluded in your favorite spot with vigilance and graceful recline, when you groom your regal markings to prim and lustrous form, then, you too are Cheetah.
