Oddly, it's NOT one of the, ahem, three cat poems that I read at Continuum 8 (which was a marvellously warm and friendly Con, and all praise to the organisers).

Cat poems seemed the perfect answer [...]From all accounts (I had a clash and couldn't get to it), the cat-poem reading at the convention was a great success.
