Mutatio Felino

Your small paws were all I needed
I felt corrupt, oh so very wrong
You were just like me once,
Closed, cut off to the world
You took your shot of tolerance
To a world that you "ignored" anyway.
Cold, hardened skin turned to soft fur
Claws to match the ones you knew you already had beneath
And a cold nose to match your icy, weary heart.

A cat became my lover.

Japan calls cat a neko
So I guess I am a nekopheliac.
What happened?
Now your gentle mews reach my ears.
Should I love you any less?
Once, you did have human flesh.
Should I love you any less?

Your once icy heart has warmed...
Should I love you any less?
