Rosie in on the Counter Again

She said to me:  “I am important. You should see me.”
I said: “I do see you. You make it very hard not to see
you. You jump on the counters and bat at my face with
your right paw.” And, she said: “That’s not about me.
That’s about you.” Surprised, I inquired: “How so?” And,
she circled her lean tortoiseshell body, tail arced, gold-
green eyes chasing mine, and meowed, so sweetly:
“That’s my way of saying: You are important too.”
