The Tale of a Former Shelter Kitty

17 Feb

Born in a pumpkin patch on a cold October day

sucking,  shivering, sleepily, snuggling  against  my mother in the rough, tough, scratchy hay

I lay almost all night and day

late one night humans found me and took me far away

they took me to a noisy, smelly, scary room and in a cage they put me

sitting or lying on display for everyone to see

lived little black and white patched fur, tuxedo looking, scared  me

there was no hiding place in that cage for me

along came a little human who picked me up, kissed, caressed, and carried me

to my forever home where he set me free

pouncing, prodding, prancing, purring, pretty kitty

leaping, lunging, lounging, licking adorable kitty

swatting, swiping, sitting majestically, happy, playful kitty

eating, drinking, loving, snuggling safe kitty

that is me
