It's baby dumping season again. We need to try to get the message out to as many people as possible to s/n their pets. If anyone wants to print this and post it wherever they can feel free. I am posting it at work and at my pet food store again. If it stops one person.... :fingerscr

An Unwanted Pet’s Lament

Life is harsh out there.
Did you know? Did you care?
You picked me up in your arms
And took me in your car
To a place so near to you
And yet so very far.
Life is harsh out there.
Did you know? Did you care?

You took me to the country
You said “you will find a space.”
You left me in a ditch
By some farmers place.
You left without a glance
Life is harsh out there.
Did you know? Did you care?

The farmer didn’t take me.
His barn was already full.
I guess there are others like you.
Who really just don’t see
that… is harsh out there.
Did you know? Did you care?

And so my life began
Searching for a shelter safe
From the cold and from the rain
Searching for a little food
And running from the dangers.
Life is harsh out there.
Did you know? Did you care?

This poem always brings tears to my eyes as well .....

The Miracle of Life...

"Come quick, come quick", their mother said "the time is getting near"
She feels that when the kittens come the children should be here
She told them that a big orange Tom took "Kitty" as his wife
"It's wonderful, a gift from God, the miracle of life"

At half a year young "Kitty" feels too painful and too scared
To appreciate six miracles, blind-eyed and yellow haired.
But she knows these lives depend on her and nature tells her how
And as she cleans them, children ask "Mom, can we go now?"

But now and then for six more weeks the children visit her
To play with six new magic toys made of life and fur.
The six weeks pass, the newness gone and new homes yet unfound,
Mom bundles up six miracles and takes them to the pound,

Where lovingly, with gentle hands and no tears left to cry,
The shelter workers kiss them once and take them off to die.
And "Momma Kitty" now shes called mourns her loss and then
She's put outside, and of course, she's pregnant once again.

Dad tells "Kitty" STOP THIS NOW or you wont live here long
But deep inside of Momma Cat, this time something's wrong.
Too young, too small, too often bred now nature's gone awry,
Momma Kitty feels it too and she crawls off to die.
She too is freed from this cruel world, and from her time of strife
How harsh the truth, how high the price this "Miracle of Life"?
