chewing on laces

My cat has a shoe fetish;
he likes to dig his paws into them,
roll them around, and
roll around on them.

I thought it was that
they’re like little gopher holes
or caves or something,
until I saw him playing with sandals
chewing on the straps and
burying his nose in the toe part.

Is it the smell?
Perhaps the taste of sweat,
so uniquely ours
that he enjoys?

My cat has a shoe fetish,
and he’ll put his toys in them
like presents for us to discover
when we leave the house.
