Cat Poem for Older Cats

I’ve been waiting here so long
For my “Forever Home”.
I’d nearly given up of finding
one to call my own.

Day after day I sat here.
I know I looked depressed,
while younger frisky kittens
moved to their new address.

Then you came and saw me,
and knew that I could be
the most devoted kitty,
and that’s why you picked me.

I hope you know how grateful
I am to have a place
To live the years that I have left
in dignity and grace.

I never will forget
all the kindness’ you’ve shown
an aging homeless kitty
who so needed a home.
