I don’t remember noticing this 
In other cats we’ve had, 
But our current cats are super sniffers: 
Fascinated by smells. 
And now the weather’s warm enough, 
They wait for me to open windows, 
Then spend hours sitting there, 
Watching and sniffing; 
 Curious about the world outside. 
In us humans, I think, that curiosity 
About that world outside our bubble 
Is more often a sign of youth — 
 One I admire but sadly rarely manifest as I age…
