No Fairy Tale For Them!

There are too many stray cats that are struggling to survive. People either abandon them, throw them away, or never bother to get them neutered or spayed. These poor little cats and kittens did not ask to be born, but they are the ones who suffer. We have to do more to help them. After all, they are a gift from God!

I’m Going Home!

I wish I lived a fairy tale
And only lost my mitten,
But late last night, God rest her soul
I lost my final kitten!

You see, I had nowhere to go
My dad had little cash,
So as my mom slept in her room
He threw me in the trash!

With seven kittens on the way
I struggled to survive,
I knew I had to do my best
To keep my kids alive!

I gave birth in a cold dark park
And it got worse from there,
Because I had no food or warmth
I could not meet their care!

So one by one they fell asleep
They barely lived a day,
But one of them, my little girl
Looked like she’d fight to stay!

Try as she might, she could not win
The fight against her death,
So as I purred a lullaby
She took her final breath!

I wish I lived a fairy tale
And all cats had a home,
But as I look around the streets
So many of us roam!

I think I’ll join my kittens now
They might need me up there,
I’m weak and scared and all alone
In Heaven, I’ll get care!

  1. What an extremely powerful and heartfelt poem. It brought tears to my eyes because
    it is so true. I foster cats with medical needs for a local rescue. I love doing it, but I get discouraged sometimes because no matter how many you save, there are still so many unwanted cats and kittens roaming the streets. Thank you so much for writing this poem about their very real struggle. Bravo!

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words. I volunteer with my local Humane Society and, like you, I get discouraged. The things we see and hear about are horrific. Keep doing what you do!
