One fine day a cat so thin but heavy with a belly
Slowly creeps under my fencing wall.
I do not know where her dwelling was
Pebbles and water chases her away.
She runs out, again shows up 
I chase, she creeps
She creeps, I chase. Clash goes on and on

So eager to know
Her reasons to retrieve so soon,
Followed her like a ghost I’d sought.
I heard her purrs and cooing
Inside an old tire she has curled covering 
Six eyes tightly closed, Rosy chins searching warmth
Her pleading stare I couldn’t bare
“Will you let us stay? We are strayed” 

A year nearly passed the time so fast 
She strolls like a queen with three princes smart
Thus entered our kinship how marvelous!
Chosen her sanctuary so Wondrous 
Without any scare 
Demands the share my lap care
                                                 Manel G.

    Thank you. They keep me occupy. As I woke up they come running to me for their share of my glass of milk.
