...is it in your heart to listen?


 

Would you care for me?
I won't take up much room,
and would be happy
to sleep at your feet,
or snuggle with you
in your big chair.

Would you give me
a little bit of your time?
A pat on the head, or
scratch my ears.
Even a belly rub
would be just fine.

Do you hear
my cry and heartbeat?
Take heed of
who I am:
I'm loyal and loving
and offer you my life.

Would you care for me?
I'll be here
just a few more days...
unless you would care for me
and take me home
to be your ever loving pet.

Don't leave without me, please...


(Author: When you need a pet, search first at the Animal Shelters near you...
you just might have room for two)

Jackie,
Amazing poetry! I hope all who reads this goes to their nearest Animal Shelter. I have a precious little dog and he's the light of my life, Jackie.

Blessings,
~Linda

We had two Scots terriers - grumpy wee beasts but loveably so all ths same. Both passed away in old age.

Touching piece, Jackie - straight from the mouth of man's best friend.

It's those with the hearts who will do as you say, Jackie, and it is those with the hearts who will FIND the room no matter what... You speak much truth here. A generous spirit knows no bounds and is not after "perfection" - only an outlet for it's much-needed love and care. Bless you for this. Kate xx

A much needed message, Micke. Adopting one would be marvelous; adopting two - outstanding!

All my many pets have come from the mean city streets or from animal shelters, and they are all truly adorable, loving creatures.

Well said and so full of heart. Everyone should visit their local animal shelter first before spreading out to other sources. There are so many in need of a home....

Be always safe,

...As one who's adopted a cat from a shelter, I know they can make wonderful pets. My "Cajun" was the best cat I'd ever had! Very compassionate, heartfelt write; brava!

How can I not read something that beckons me with "A Heartbreaking Plea?" -- I did just the same and took in dear Bambi and Brutus 14 years ago. I watch and care this week as Bambi is now blind, won't eat and hardly walking. Brutus lays beside her as I hand feed her. She has been a faithful companion and I would do it all over again. Sincerely, Deborah

Jackie,

Compassionate, beautiful write - they don't ask much. And they'll love you, unconditionally - well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
