Sad Stray Cat poem

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I found a sad stray cat poem on another site that I thought all of you would like to read. When I read it it made me cry because one of the two kittens I just adopted was a stray.

Dear God, please send me somebody who'll care.
I'm so tired of running and sick with dispair.
My body is aching and filled with such pain,
And dear God, I pray, as I run in the rain
That someone will love me and give me a home
A warm cozy bed and food of my own.
My last owner left me alone in the yard
I watched as they moved... and God that was hard.
So I waited a while, then went on my way
To rummage in the garbage and live as a stray.
But now, God I'm so tired and hungry and cold;
And I'm so afraid I'll never grow old.
They chased me with sticks and hit me with straps.
While I run the streets, just looking for scraps.
I'm not really bad. God please help me if you can
For I have become just "A victim of man".
I'm wormy, now God and ridden with fleas
And all I want is an owner to please.
If you find one for me, God, I'll try to be good
I won't scratch the carpet, I'll do as I should
I'll love them, play with them, and try to obey
I'll be so greatful if they'll let me stay.
I don't think I'll make it too long on my own
'Cause I'm getting weak and I'm so all alone
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry
'Cause I'm so afraid, God that I'm going to die.
I've got so much love and devotion to give
That I should be given a new chance to live.
So dear God, please hear me. Please answer my prayer
And send me somebody who will REALLY care.

That brings me to tears reading that. I wish I could scoop up every stray cat in the world and just hug them and take care of them, and let them know they are loved.
