A story of compassion.
This is a story of compassion,
Last Sunday while roaming the streets,
My husband and I heard crying not far from us,
While out on one of our walks.
We could not ignore it,
It was strong,
Someone or something needed help,
We had to try and help.
So we walked closer to where we heard the sound,
Much to our surprise we found a small kitten,
He was in a green crate,
And asking for help.
He was very small,
And probably very hungry,
Scared too we assumed,
We couldn’t ignore him.
My husband picked him up,
Cleaned him as best he could,
Then I went to get milk,
So we could feed him.
But the kitten was so small,
Didn’t know how to drink milk from a bowl,
So we took him home,
Fed him with a medicine dropper.
Monday he went to the vet,
Vet said he was in good health,
Made us happy to know,
Felt so good to help this little thing.
However at home,
We already have a 7 year old cat,
She is the queen,
She did not like this little guy.
He was taking her place,
It was sad to see them not get along,
So we asked some friends to take him,
Plus he was a baby and a lot to care for.
After two days,we found someone,
My kind friend Candice offered to take him,
He is now in her care,
He is doing great.
I see pics of him every day on the Internet,
His name is Oliver,
We are so glad we rescued you,
And now happy to see you in good hands.
Sometimes we have to hold out our hand,
Help those in need,
In any way we can,
We all have something to offer.
Deep down I hope he will remember us,
We won’t forget him,
Oliver you touched our hearts,
And you will always be in them.
