Just as we had started our day A tiny kitten came my way In some water she was found She had fallen in and nearly drowned. Into my hand she was put Where she sat and stared and looked Her large round eyes stared into mine Our love could grow if we're given time. Her tail was all but a thumbnail long Her Mother had left her, how very wrong. She fitted into the palm of my hand She was so weak she could hardly stand. I took her home this feral cat She saw the dogs and didn't like that. She hissed and spat and tried to run The dogs were shocked and wouldn't come. The dogs hid away and peered in fright Was this thing really staying the night. We took it slowly so tensions could mend And as days went by she became their friend. A proud fluffy cat she has grown to be As she stretches herself across my knee She purrs with contentment and loves a fuss I often wonder did we find her or did she find us.
