Scavenging for bits and scraps
I wandered round the town
Nothing much to sniff or scratch
No food or water found.

One day I met an angel
Who gave me a loving wink
A bowl of tuna, a few sweet nods
And a cold, clean, tasty drink.

She bent down and picked me up
She was kind as she could be
She held me close, touched my head
And said that she loved me.

Not allowed to go inside
I followed close behind
She walked towards her front door
Our steps now intertwined.

“No, no sweet kitty, you can’t come in
You can’t come in this time”
I purred and got up close to her
Hoping she would change her mind.

If she would just give me a chance
I’d never scratch, or bite
I’ll cuddle up with her each day
And…each and every night.

  1. I have 3 strays at work… I feed them daily. I wonder if they feel like this for me.
    I would bring them home if I could but i have three rescues at home too. They are my babies… Couldn’t bear to give them away.
