Thoroughly Poetic Thanksgiving
We are turning this regular Thursday event into a Thanksgiving event for today as we have much for which to be thankful. This week’s prompt letter is supposed to be “X,” but we’re taking some poetic license and turning that into “ex!”
Exceptionally Good News!
Kitties in shelters don’t know what to expect:
Will they be there a week, a month, or more?
That was the case for our sponsored cat Swizzle.
Being a shy and senior kitty her outlook was poor.
Volunteers Tracey and Kevin* visited often,
But she languished at PAWS for two-plus years.
We prayed for her and shared her with you,
As her plight brought Mom often to tears.
We received updates and photos from Kevin,
And we made her an honorary Blue kitty…
Always sad she was overlooked again and again
In spite of her extraordinary and exquisite beauty!
But recently the good news arrived.
Finally our prayers were being answerd…
A new home with another volunteer.
Swizzle was getting her happily ever after.
So that is our poem for Thanksgiving,
But it isn’t an end but a new beginning.
Please say, “hi,” to Miss Piggy and Pumpkin,
Two new PAWS kitties we’ll be sponsoring.
