This site is under major construction!
Basically right now, just trying to organise all of my poetry.
After which, I'll add my art and graphics to go with the poems and/or the themed content.

   "My Kitty!"    
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
                      My Kitty is my friend,
                      When no one wants to be.
                      She's tolerant of my quirks,
                      She's prrr-fect just for me.
                      She knows sometimes I'm lonely,
                      But she always does her best,
                      To lift my spirits up,
                      As she purrs upon my chest.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
                      When I'm in the need
                      To talk about the part,
                      That lies in a secret place
                      Deep inside my heart,
                      She rubs her head against me,
                      As the aching, longing stirs,
                      But I know my secret's safe, 
                      With her reassuring purrs.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
                      For all the times,
                      When the pain's so great
                      And I think there's nothing
                      To console it or abate,
                      She once again comes through,
                      My lack of faith, forgives,
                      Reminds me in my heart,
                      Is where she always lives.

   "Don't Forget The Love!"    
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
                      Although my needs are few,
                      I seldom will complain,
                      I'll give you all I can though,
                      In sunshine or in rain.
                      My love is unconditional
                      That I willingly give to you.
                      So please, be sure to show me
                      And return some love from you!

   "My Kitties!"    
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
                      My kitties bring me joy,
                      But they also bring me pain.
                      All their crazy antics
                      Can drive me so insane.
                      Yet, I love them dearly
                      For my life would never be
                      Quite the same without them
                      And all their playful glee.

--   ATTENTION: COMMUNITY PET OWNERS!    --
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

           I have been an avid pet rescue person for many years. I have seen what results because there are just too many pets and not
           enough GOOD homes available for all of them. As a result, thousands across this country (U.S.A.) are needlessly euthanised
           every day. Millions more are abandoned, abused, and neglected. So please pet owners, have your pet spayed or neutered to
           help put an end to this ever growing problem of innocent animals suffering.  --Sharon Donnelly  
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Attention - Community...!"

1)                    There wouldn't be so many 
                      Lonely, homeless pets,
                      If owners were responsible
                      And would see their vets.
                         - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
2)                 
  Neutering and spaying
                      Is so little a cost
                      For saving the lives of MILLIONS
                      That are yearly lost!!!!
                         - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
3)                 
  If YOU, as an owner,
                      Fail to neuter or spay,
                      YOU contribute DEATH
                      To THOUSANDS everyday!!
                         - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
4)                 
  There aren't enough "good" homes
                      For all that's here right now,
                      By advocating more,
                      Destruction YOU ALLOW!!!!!

5)                    NO matter your excuse,
                      NO matter what your reason,
                      The bottom line's the same,
                      NO matter what the season!!
                         - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
6)                    You say you "love" animals?
                      You say you "love" your pets?
                      Then wake up and PROOVE IT!
                      Take them to their vets!
                         - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
7)                    Spay and / or neuter
                      With protection from disease.
                      Keep them properly groomed
                      And free from ticks and fleas.
                         - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
8)                    If you love your pets,
                      Give responsible Love 'n' Care
                      Be an ultimate benefit
                      For all pets -- EVERYWHERE!!!

I recently 'just' started: http://www.colourourworld.org  It is to be a project/mission to help animals that are in need of a good home; to help educate the public about this ever growing problem and to also, increase awareness of the neglect and various forms of abuse that many animals suffer needlessly and is always unwarranted, plus any other ways to help animals, particularly those in one need or another.

"Royal Sterling Silver"

(Affectionally called, Royal Puddin'!)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
This page is made in the
Loving memory of my friend...
This is how I chose the name
Though to heaven he did ascend.
Sufficiently to describe...
There are no words to say
About my loyal, devoted pal...
And I miss him every day!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
(This poem was written for my AOL Hometown Rescue Pages.)

"My Kitties!"

(Kitties rule!) 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
My kitties bring me joy,
But they also bring me pain.
All their crazy antics
Can drive me so insane.
Yet, I love them dearly
For my life would never be
Quite the same without them
And all their playful glee.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
(We cat owners can attest to this!)

"Samantha's Wings!"

(Written when my neighbours lost their beloved Samantha.)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
I have been a pal to you 
For many, many years,
Through all the cherished moments;
The sad and happy tears.
 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I've been so honored 
To be your loyal friend.
Just because I've had to part,
This journey needn't end.
 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I am with you always,
As I have been from the start
And you'll always find me 
There, just inside your heart.
 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I have risen, now
To a more important role.
My duty comes with wings
To protect and guard your soul.
 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
My tail is always wagging now
For I can always see;
I can always hear you all
So clearly...my beloved family!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

"My Kitty!"

(I think sometimes we take for granted...)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
My Kitty is my friend,
When no one wants to be.
She's tolerant of my quirks,
She's prrr-fect just for me.
She knows sometimes I'm lonely,
But she always does her best,
To lift my spirits up,
As she purrs upon my chest.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
When I'm in the need
To talk about the part,
That lies in a secret place
Deep inside my heart,
She rubs her head against me,
As the aching, longing stirs,
But I know my secret's safe, 
With her reassuring purrs.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
For all the times,
When the pain's so great
And I think there's nothing
To console it or abate,
She once again comes through,
My lack of faith, forgives,
Reminds me in my heart,
Is where she always lives. 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

"Step Inside My Kitty Condo..if you dare!"

(Just a little fun poem...)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Step inside my kitty condo,
Where everything is prrrr-fect for a kitty.
If you're a human or a dog,
You had best be pretty witty!
This is where all cats play,
Few exceptions are the rule.
Our claws are always ready
And we detest that doggie drool!
We only let our motors purr,
When we feel you've earned our trust.
We never let our guard down.
We are selective with our lust!
Do not waste our time 
With meaningless dribble.
We'll chew you up and spit you out,
For we have better kibble!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
(...because we cat owners understand "kitty kwirks"!)

"My Special Friend!"

(Best friend...)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I have a special friend,
I must tell you all about.
Yeah, I'm going to brag.
Heck, I'll even shout.
We pal around together,
Share secrets we'll never tell.
We snuggle up together
As we nap for just a spell.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I share my food with him,
Which he waits for patiently
With his big, puppy eyes,
Giving kisses back to me!
Oh, indeed, I am so truly loved and blessed
To have a friend like him, is better than the best!

"Spooky!"

(Shuffled from one place to another...!)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
I'm a five year old, neutered male 
And I'm sure hopin' you'll tip the scale, 
In my favor to take a chance 
And give me more than just a glance. 
I'll be your friend, stand by you. 
And I can offer protection, too, 
For love, some food, a brush and comb 
With folks that want me in their home. 
I'm hoping and longing for you to say... 
"Come on Spooky, you're adopted today!"

"Mask!"

(Owner had to move and couldn't find...)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
My name is Mask... 
And I'm on a quest, 
'Cause I need a home, 
For just me is the best! 
Since I'm a lookin'... 
And if you're a knowin', 
I'm just a fella'... 
That's easy goin'!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

"Ebony!"

(This lady was badly beaten and abused...)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Hello, all you lovers of pets. 
I'm sorta' in a bind. 
Ebony is my given name 
And I'm looking for, to find... 
A special home is what I need 
With attention all for me, 
'Cause in my past I've been abused 
And it's hard for me, you see... 
A feeling of security is difficult for me, 
'Cause not once or twice, do I speak. 
Many times I've been shoved aside 
So my faith is just a little weak. 
This doesn't mean that I can't give... 
Love, devotion, just like all the rest, 
'Cause this is where I do excel, 
Since I give my very best!!!

"Meet Mia!"

(This yound lady was badly neglected...)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Hello, my name is Mia. 
I'm just a little girl, 
Looking for a home 
In this whole wide world. 
Only in this world five months 
And looking for a place 
To rest 'n' play 'n' frolic 
And to know a friendly face! 
I am a mix. This is true, 
Of hound dog can't you tell? 
A gentle voice, a loving touch 
Ahh, this would be just swell! 
I'm playful as a pup can be. 
I love to romp and play with glee. 
I'd play with you, you would see..., 
If you'd only give a home to me!

"My Pups!"

(These girls had a bit of a rough start...)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
We, the pups, have found a home 
Where we can romp and play. 
With two boys that love us 
And give attention every day! 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
So many times like we, the pups, 
Find a home quite soon...

And then the Mom is left behind 
To sing a lonely tune. 
But in this case, we're very glad 
To report the wonderful news. 
Our Mom has found a home as well 
And she no longer sings the blues!!!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
(...But the two girls now have a good home together, too! :) )

"And now...Piper!"

(Mama too now has a great home...)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Remember me? I'm Piper, 
The mother of the pups.
I'm so happy in my new home. 
Oh, yessiree and yups! 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
My pal, Mia and I,
We are pampered every day
And we have the very best
In every kind of way!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
The food is superb, plenty do we eat,
But the very best of all, is all the love so sweet!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
(...With Mia! They have lots of love they share!)

"Tips On Good Pet Care!"

(Just very basic consideration...)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
On these days when it is hot 
And you are inside cool, 
Remember me and my needs 
And remember the golden rule! 
Do onto others as you would 
So have done onto you. 
Take care of me the way you should. 
Fresh water and shade, the least you can do! 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
(...But is this ALL that you can give?)

"Don't Forget The Love!"

(Pets love us...!) 
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Although my needs are few,
I seldom will complain,
I'll give you all I can though,
In sunshine or in rain.
My love is unconditional
That I willingly give to you.
So please, be sure to show me
And return some love from you!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
(...So love your pets!)

"Thinking About Adopting A Pet?"

(Adopt a pet with the same frame of mind...)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
If you're thinking about getting a pet, 
It's a decision you don't want to regret. 
So before you adopt or you buy, 
You have to know that you must try 
To be as informed as you can get!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
They live many years, most of them do 
So if your thinking of seeing them through 
Make sure you know before you buy 
For they deserve more than just a 'try'. 
And left somewhere abandoned and blue.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
You must be a responsible person 
To better their life, not to worsen. 
There's more involved in 'good pet care' 
Than giving some food here and there. 
When sick and injured, they'll need some nursin'.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
They require the touch of you 
As well, they need your voice some, too. 
Not just shoved in a world outside 
Even with shelter they need applied 
Assurance, security, and love from you!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
If you have little time to spare 
To give them love and tender care 
Then I suggest what you might do 
Get a pet that's 'stuffed' for you 
Along the lines of a teddy bear! 

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
(...As with adopting a child, because pets need the same security!)

"Grooming Your Pet!"

(Good grooming IS love...)
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Do not overbathe your pet to take away the soils,
For this dries the skin by removing all the oils.
Brushing the fur of your pet
Is the best that you can do.
This activates the oil glands
And so shines the coat anew.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
With brushing you must start where the hairs begin.
Separate the fur in sections way down at the skin.
The motion should be from the root
Towards the end of every hair.
When you've done the brushing well,
You're on to combing care!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Use the same method as you did in the brushing.
A proper job takes time with no room for any rushing.
The comb is used to find small tangles
That the brush has often missed.

You don't want even the smallest
Tangles to be left, dismissed.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
To give your task a touch of finalty and sheen
Rub the coat down with a cloth that's soft and clean!
These guidelines that I have given here
Are referring to a long haired pet.
If you have a short haired one, though,
They too need brushing, don't forget!  

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
(...Because our pets like to feel beautiful, too! :) )
