and this is 'Honey'

She's hiding under the bed.
She wants to trust me but she's scared.
The only 'mom' she's ever known is gone.
To move to this house, she wasn't prepared.

She lived her whole five years
in a quiet life with her best friend.
Now she feels so all alone,
that home, that life, is now at an end.

She comes out to look around
but everything here is strange to her.
She rubs against my leg and meows.
I reach down to pet her, she starts to purr

then it's back under the bed.
She doesn't trust me or anyone yet
but I'll be patient. I'll give her time
to get to know me and be my pet.

    I just love pets they all have their own little personalities and they give so much love. Much enjoyed this peek into miss kitty's life. Huggs TLee I left you a soup mail.

    You're just a perfect mom for this fuzzball Francine, a patient loving mom who will give this little kitty a home many others don't have. I find a pet fills a space in the heart that nothing else can. Loved this poem; it makes me warm! :)

    Dear Francine, it takes kittens a while to adjust to new surroundings. I'm so glad you took her in. In no time at all, she will be following you everywhere. What a lovely poem! Love, Carolyn

    LOL your verse sounds like MY SON...he was 7 when me moved he made us replicate his bedroom before he would MOVE, stop crying and taking fits...really REPLICATE HIS BEDROOM! [Hey Francine! YES it was for the Lightfoot Contest you just looked at it too quick..before I had a chance to make the footnote..The song of his I used was "Unsettled Ways" that alright?} Light & Love

    I bet she will end up being as sweet as honey! Is it really true you just got this shy cat? I sure hope she learns to love you.
