Hope Of A Shelter Kitty


 a cozy lap
sunbeam for a nap

soft spot for her head,
most likely your bed

a windowsill view
time spent with you

a treat now and then
love with no end

For every comment left here on my blog today, I’ll donate $1 to the Humane Society where we recently adopted our kitty, Sundae.

This is my entry for today’s Mama Kat’s Writing Workshop. 
The prompt I chose was to “write a poem about hope”.

  1. Not only is my favorite sister a wonderful photographer (and a naturally loving person!) but a gifted poet. Thought I’d taught her not to hide her talents under a basket!!
    Every time I see this photo, it reminds me of the Chessie kitten you embroidered for Marshall’s room!
    Love you, Sis, AND my prissy kitty-niece!

  2. I love your poem, your picture, and that you are donating to the shelter!! Great prompt response!

  3. Nice post today. Thank you for donating to the shelter.

  4. Great poem! I hope you get lots of comments as the shelter is a great recipient!

  5. So awesome that you will be helping other animals too! Can’t wait to meet Sundae!

  8. Yes: great poem, and great idea! Sundae definitely found a home filled with love, and I think she knows it!!

  9. Awww! That is so sweet. Sure hope Sundae is feeling better after her surgery. She has a home filled with love that is for sure.

  16. Purr-fectly said! All those things my kitty loved; miss him so much.

  17. Sundae doesn’t know how very lucky she is to have found such a loving home and she has a new mission in life as a “nurse” kitty. Hope the “headache therapy” worked!

  18. How sweet…and perfect photo ! 🙂 So nice of you to donate.
    Thaks for stopping by my blog.

  19. I am probably late with my comment, but, thank you Diane for having such a sweet heart and caring so much for animals….God’s furry gifts to us to make us happy!

  20. I’m so glad you found the perfect kitten. She looks like a great lap-cat.

  21. Oh this was wonderful! I think it should be used by all the agencies who try to find homes for cats. And what a generous donation to make.

  22. So happy you have such a sweet kitty! This poem reminds me of my sweet cat. You are so generous to donate to the Humane Society. This warms my heart!

  23. Oh how very sweet of you! And that kitty is just adorable! Makes me miss my two cats from years ago! Thanks for the visit today! 🙂

  24. What a beautiful kitty!! We got our kitty Dakota from the Southern Arizona Animal Shelter 2 years ago. She was 6yrs old at the time, and she was very happy to get out of there and come live with us. 🙂

  25. Awwww, how did I miss this one??? Great idea from a big ❤ 🙂

  26. Okay – you KNOW I don’t read your blog every day. (Remember – BLOGFEST?) So, you should have called my cell and left a message or texted a message. Oh yeah, that wouldn’t work either because I sometimes don’t check my voicemail for 2 months and I forget to check my texts. Anyway, if I had seen this earlier I would have also had BOTH of my friends leave a message since your are donating to Humane Society ;~)

  27. What a cute cat you got! I love your poem too and you are awesome for donating $1 per comment to the shelter. I hope you get a lot! Certainly glad I stopped by from writer’s workshop. Here’s the link to ours if you get a chance to visit: http://zemeks.blogspot.com/2011/03/how-we-make-each-other-crazy-writers.html

    This month we are donating 50 cents per comment to Canine Lifeline whose founder rescued our dog!

    Love comes in all shapes and sizes. What a good ideal. Hope I am not to late.

  29. Sweet post and even sweeter idea. Cheers! MJ
