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.”
