(310) Our Cat (Tiger) - Poem by Melvina Germain

A tiny tabby kitten, with sad brown eyes.
Sat on the porch of a broken down house.
He was about to become homeless,
without any food, not even a mouse.

I stood and gazed at this poor lonely cat.
Shook my head and placed him in my hat.
A long drive across the city we drove.
Now Tiger sits cozily in front of our stove.

    Mel as Theresa has said before me taking in a homeless cat can be so rewarding. I find that my own cats are very affectionate. Lovely poem, as your dog poem touched me, this one did as well. Top marks and thanks for sharing it my friend.

    Taking in a homeless cat can be a rewarding experience for the new pet owner. Many of the pets we have owned were originally strays. They seem to be most appreciative. I enjoyed your delightful poem. (Report) Reply

    Melvina;
    A beautiful tribute to a kitty kat.
    I write many poems in memorie of my Kitty Kat. if you can believe it she was the one that started me off in poetry, as I went into deep depression after I put her to sleep, I was told to document my thoughs in a ledger for my personal use, and It started to form into poetry and I have been writing every day ever since, It all began in 2002 I express all these feelings in my poetry, if you care to search.
    I have posted about 200, have 2 reams not posted.I was 78 years old when I started. will be 83 in October. (reading all your poems on my favorite list.)
