Cats Purr When They’re Scared

Whenever I hear something like

“The sexual assault climate is

Terrifying and unreasonable—

These women are now able to say

‘I didn’t like that sex so—

I was raped!’ There’s never been

A scarier time

To be a man”

And all I think about

Is how unbelievably loud

My cat’s purr was, when she

Went to the vet for a checkup

And had a thermometer

Inserted into her little catbutt.

She purred louder then

Than she’s ever purred in my hands

I realized then that

Cats purr when they are scared

Imagine how

Utterly terrifying it would be

For your pleas for decency

To be confused with pleasure —

I think women deserve better
