Beltane Story By Sue Wolfson
Iam cat. I sit on the side of the tub and watch the woman bathing. She is
the one who loves me and feeds me, and she is my goddess. But now as I watch
her rub her body with the soft soapy cloth, I feel strange stirrings that
a cat should not have for a human female. Sometimes it seems as if Im
watching her through human eyes, and beneath my cat face is that of a human
male watching with me. I am called, Jims Cat.
The woman purrs in her mind, I can feel her delight in the warm water. The
man feels that with me. Who is this man? I have a vague recollection of
such a one when I was just a small kitten. Could it be this one called Jim
who shares my visions and my senses?
She who bathes, rises from the water, and wraps a towel around her form.
Her mind reels.... the heat of the bath has made her dizzy. I follow her
as she walks to the bed, and watch as the towel is unwrapped from her human
form and spread upon the quilt. I don't understand why this person who seems
to also be part cat would enjoy being wet. I'll help her and show her my
affection at the same time.
In one leap, Im on the bed.... I see the droplets of water on her
breasts and belly. The man sees them with me. My tongue laps at those droplets.
The water tastes of her. What are these strange feelings I feel?
She is thinking of him... Im deep within her mind, privy to her most
private thoughts. I feel the longings of both of them. And I know that someday
soon I will have both of these humans close to me, and they will be grateful
that I allowed them these moments to be together when being together was
impossible. The word, familiar comes into my mind, but I dont
know what its meaning might be. I am cat.
