Everywhere you look, you will see a stray cat. They are roaming the streets in search of food, warmth, and love. Most of these strays will not survive. To die, without ever experiencing unconditional love, is something that should never happen. Unfortunately, it happens every day.
Five cats adorned the streets last night
In search of food and love,
But one to weak to carry on
So she was called above!
Four cats adorned the streets last night
In need of warmth from cold,
The eldest died in someone’s yard
His body, just too old!
Three cats adorned the streets last night
Coyote at their feet,
The youngest caught, could not escape
Coyote now could eat!
Two cats adorned the streets last night
Their walk was long and far,
One made it to the park to rest
The other, death by car!
One cat adorned the streets last night
His heart could take no more,
He closed his eyes and went to sleep
And joined the other four!
This tale is very sad but true
Too many cats are strays,
We need to find them loving hearts
And brighten all their days!
For every cat deserves a home
They have so much to give,
Not one should have to die a stray
They all deserve to live!
