kittens are great companions



An old man with children grown
Grandchildren not around
Nothing but the sound of silence
Brought his spirits down. 
He had so much love to give
Didn’t want a lot, just the joyful sound
Of young one’s laughs again.
The Lord saw he was a good man
And gave to him a gift. Not a human
young one, an animal he sent his way.
 While raking away the last of autumn,
On a warm and sunny day, he heard the tiniest
Cry. At first he was hearing things, but there it was again!
He looked down, and saw a tiny fur of black
And white crying up at him. He knew right
Away that she belonged to him
He drowned in her baby blue eyes,
And was instantly in love. He became
The kitten’s “mother”, nursing her
To health. She suckled the milk he put on
His finger, took care of her, his empty life
Was better than riches, or any other wealth
 Sleeping on his shoulder, nuzzling his neck
His silent laughter came back to life again.

Ah the mystery -- are you talking of a human or a favorite pet?
I like the way you set the story -- because everyone really does love a little kitten. Susan

This one got to me! I have a small 5 month old kitten with large ears, named Sassy. She's adorable but not as affectionate as this pretty kitty, but this lovely poem makes me appreciate my little terror on four paws all the more.

Hello Mary,

Beautiful and very touching. Kittens, cats and dogs, (and birds too) know how to give love and affection - this poem is so true.

Oh, she's soooo adorable!!!!!
Yes,the kitties can really heal your sadness. They're like a bundle of joy even when they aren't smiling or doing anything.

My daughter's kitties choose their favorite grandparent, and my big boy Pride choose me over my hubby. Big Boy Pride is actually a sweet guy who loves to follow her mommy around the house. You can never get tired of them all.

Sandie Angel :o)
