A DUMP CAT’S WISH
author unknown

Oh yes, I heard them talking,

just the other day.

 

They thought I couldn’t listen,

to what they had to say:

 

“She sheds too much; she cries at night,

then sleeps away the day.

 

We’ll drop her off out somewhere,

get a kitten that will play.”

 

So now I’m cold and hungry,

struggling to survive.

 

Without some food and water,

I doubt I’ll stay alive.

 

I wish someone would rescue me,

and I could hear them say:

 

“You’ll live your life with love from me,

until your dying day.”
