The Grossness of Cat Food

The spoojy liquid
from a cat food can
makes me ill
when it smears my hand.
I’d rather fondle
something dead
than have that feeling
in my head.
Wipe it away
and scrub my fingers
but on and on
the sensation lingers
until in grief
at the cat I cry
it’s over, puss!
Now you eat dry!
