A little black kitty has been hanging around the apartment complex, meowing her head off. I call her Little Screamer. Poor baby ... they don't allow pets here, or I'd adopt her in a second. :(

Image (c) 2010, Karla Dorman

Little Screamer screams,
wakes me up with her
yowls for attention ---
feed me.  Feed me now.
Poor little kitty,
black body a sponge
absorbing the heat
and humidity.
Feel sorry for her,
give her water and
tuna; she stays for
a while, telling me
all about her day
before moving on.
See you tomorrow,
Little Screamer.  Wish
I could keep you, but
pets are not allowed  ...

(c) 2010, Karla Dorman (6/18)

It breaks my heart to see animals out and about with no home, I fear of other animals tearing them apart for food. Best call a shelter for Little screamer.

What about placing an ad in a local parer or perhaps a shelter?

What a little cutey. Check your phone books for local animal rescue groups, and see if you can get one of them to take her in. Most feral kittens can become excellent indoor pets if rescued early enough. If they are left on the mean streets too long, they become unadoptable - and in this little cutey's case, she'll soon get pregnant, and there'll be more starving little kittys, that no one wants.

Try talking with the landlord and maybe they will help to find that baby a home. Sorry you can't keep her, sounds so sweet, but the more you feed her the more she will keep coming back. You are still doing the right thing because it is too hot for that little one.

Be always safe,

You might want to approach your landlord...sometimes they do make exceptions...never know unless you try.

Bust the rules. Rules are for fools and the guidance of wise-men.

So sadly stated, Karla. Lost, homeless and abused animals always rip at my heart, as with most other's also. Sad thing is, though, if you or someone else were to pick the kitty up and bring it to an animal shelter, someone may adopt it, or maybe not. But is being humanisticaly put down worse than being homeless and starving?

They do win our hearts- easily.
I'm thankful for my kitty. There is something so sweet about her- good company- and as long as she lives she will be there for me.

Loved this.

May God bless you, Karla, for feeding it and giving it water.

Such a sweet little kitty: it's a shame we can't have her! I'm sure she would make a great little companion! Wonderful write, and that piccy is too precious: you caught her in mid-meow! LOL Well done, Karla; brava!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your twin, Karen Lynn. :D

As I think I said before, you could keep her as an outside cat, but even just feeding her now is making her want to stay so she is YOUR complex cat either way...ed

maybe a local shelter could pick her up and find a home?
