She thought she’d rescue that cat –
The one who needed to be safe.
She gave the cat a home, a name, a safe place to be.

She took care of the kittens,
Who came along too –
full tummies, warm and adored.

She thought she’d rescue that cat,
But it was she, the cat rescued.

The cat sat on her knee,
She stroked her, talked to her, loved her.
She kept the cat safe.

She was still and peaceful to keep the cat calm.
It was the cat that saved her.

Usually found with a cup of tea, a pet or a book, I am most content with life's humble gifts. A catch up with friends and home baked cakes is my idea of bliss. My heart beats where my family are close but my soul will always be in that place between sunset and sunrise. 💚
