I am crying out to the world to find me, feed me, cradle me, love me!
I am an abandoned kitten.
It is very lonely in these woods.
Some really special people drive right by me at the fast food drive-through lane where I am hidden in the shrubbery.
Perhaps they do not hear me, I think.
I get louder . . . and louder.
My cry becomes so loud it hurts my own ears.
My bones are sticking out all over because I have not eaten in several days.
Children walk right by me yet do not stop to help me.
I am certain I am going to go to kitty cat heaven and be with my friends. It is hard and I am very sad.
Then I think, maybe I will see my mommy and daddy?
Mostly I just feel sad and lonely in these shrubs.
A car pulls up for a take-out order and I try one more time to cry loud enough for them to hear me.
Then I see them drive on.
A few minutes later they have circled the restaurant and are back!
A very handsome man parks the car and gets out, leaving a lovely and gorgeous woman with a kind smile waiting in the car, listening for me.
He walks toward the bushes and begins to call out “Here, kitty-kitty-kitty! Where are you? Are you lonely? Are you hungry? Do you want some love?”
I cannot move.
I have no strength and my voice has lessened to a squeak.
The handsome man looks and looks through the brush until he finally sees me, a very thin, very sick, solid black kitty.
He gathers me in a soft towel for I am embarrassingly filthy, and hands me to the lovely gorgeous woman with the kind smile.
I am saved and it feels sooooooo good I cannot stop licking everybody!
A new home is chosen for me by this loving couple. Hmmmm. . . I wonder what it will be like?
Several days later, after having to get shots and being poked by a kitty-cat doctor, I am presented to my new Forever Home.
I become Nahnee Murphey’s new little Boo-BeauCoup!
She is a writer and lives in a treehouse on a sacred lake.
She adores me. Awwww . . . happy days.
