The On-Line Newsletter

From 24 June 2003 Issue

I adopted your cat today.
Shel 2001 feralplace@aol.com

I adopted your cat today.
The one you left at the pound.
The one you had for ten years
And no longer wanted around.

I adopted your cat today.
Do you know he's lost weight?
Do you know he's scared and depressed
And has lost all faith?

I adopted your cat today.
He had fleas and a cold,
But don't worry none.
You've unburdened your load.

I adopted your cat today.
Were you having a baby or moving away?
Did you suddenly develop allergies
Or was there no reason he couldn't stay?

I adopted your cat today.
He doesn't play or eat much.
He's very depressed,
But he will learn again to trust.

I adopted your cat today
And here he will stay.
He's found his forever home
And a warm bed to lay.

I adopted your cat today
And I will give him all that he could need.
Patience, love, security, and understanding.
Hopefully he will forget your selfish deed.
