Rescuing Kitties
(Where is the for kitties?)

Who "owns" a cat that isn't a "rescue",
That someone couldn't handle and had to pretend not to want,
A sweet little kitty in need of more loving,
At least two squares a day and a true confidante
It can share a good purr with and a private smooch
All for itself, and not with the family pooch?

Toss in a head roll and even a head butt
A friendly leg rub with that you're-mine kitty strut.
How many's too many? Kittens need a new home?
All your friends are full-up? Kittens aren't meant to roam.
First try a shelter; then head to the vet
To get Mommy spayed for an even more loving pet.
