Mermaids, Mercats (they’re all the same)

That cat is a mermaid.
Or a merman (he is a boy cat after all).
Nightly siren calls
Wreaking havoc
To my sanity and sleep.

The next morning he returns;
Calmly licks wet paws
And rubs wet head.
Dines on tuna from a can.
And I am secretly horrified
By this act of cannibalism.
