Pretty Kitty

the pretty kitty is my friend
I visit it every day
it mews so softly
as I offer food
I finally got to pet it
it won’t be too long
before I can take it
to the vet where it’s safe

the soft white fur
and bright gold eyes
have me begging Mom
I want to keep it
once it lets me pick it up
soon that will happen
I know how long trust takes
I will have it

I seek the pretty kitty
where I always feed it
yet all my calls
leave me all alone
where did it go?
I had finally got to pet it
today could be the day
now I cannot reach the kitty

where is my pretty kitty?
I start asking all around
someone gives me an answer
it’s not the one I thought
my pretty kitty
did not survive the night
and the shelter offers little
when the lights are out
