My neighbor gave me this poem.....it's heart breaking !

The Prayer of the Little Stray Cat

Dear God, please send me somebody who'll care!
I'm so tired of running and sick with despair.
My body is aching and filled with such pain:
And dear God I pray, as I run in the rain...
That someone will love me and give me a home,
A warm cozy bed and food of my own.
My last owner left me alone in the yard...
I watched as they moved, and God that was hard.
So I waited a while, then went on my way
To rummage in garbage and live as a stray.
But now, God, I'm so tired and hungry and cold;
And I'm so afraid that I'll never grow old.
They've chased me with sticks and hit me with straps
While I run in the streets just looking for scraps.
I'm not really bad, God, please help if you can
For I have become just a "Victim of Man!"
I'm wormy, dear God and I'm ridden with fleas:
And all that I want is an Owner to please.
If you find one for me, God, I'll try to be good.
I won't scratch the carpet: I'll do as I should.
I'll love them and play with them and try to obey.
I will be so grateful if they just let me stay.
I don't think I'll make it too long on my own,
Cause I'm getting weak and I'm so all alone.
Each night as I sleep in the bushes I cry,
Cause I'm so afraid God, that I'm gonna die.
I've got so much love and devotion to give
that I should be given a new chance to live.
So dear God, please hear me, please answer my prayer,
And send me to someone who will REALLY care.
