The Sweet Grey Stray - Poem by Talmadge Rogalla

My partner and I saw a feline,
As we went outside,
She mewed and ran up to us
She did not even hide.

She may have little kittens
She announced with a poke
As the cat began a din,
“Take me in” I’m sure she spoke.

We placed her in a comfy box,
Outside it began to shower,
The sweet grey feline,
Gave birth to three in an hour.

I am glad you are my friends,
My owner is unaware,
He is a very arrogant man,
Who simply does not care!

We became fond of Smokey,
And in a little over a week,
The kittens purred and thanked us,
In a tiny little squeak.
