I love my little kitty; she makes my house a home.
She always is my best friend, I never feel alone.
She makes me smile, she makes me laugh,
She fills my heart with love...
Did some breeder breed her, or did she fall down
I've never been a breeder, seen life through their
I hold my little kitty, and just sit and criticize.
I've never known their anguish, I've never felt
The caring of their charges, through snow or wind
I've never sat the whole night through,
Waiting for babies to be born.
The stress and trepidation when they're still
not there by dawn.
I've never felt the heartache, of a little life
in my hands,
This darling little baby, who weighs but 60 grams.
Should you do that instead of this... or this
instead of that?
Alone you fight, and hope one day, he'll grow
to be a cat,
and bring joy to another being, and make a house
You know it's all just up to you; you'll fight
this fight alone.
Formula, bottles, heating pads, you've got to
get this right,
Two hourly feedings for this tiny little guy,
throughout the day and night.
In your heart you know, you're almost sure to
lose the fight,
To save this little baby, but God willing... you
Day one he's in there fighting, you say a silent
Day two & three, he's doing well, with lots
of love and care.
Day four & five ... he's still alive.
Your hopes soar to the heavens,
Day six he slips away again, dies in your hands
You take this little angel, and bury him alone,
With aching heart and burning tears, and an exhausted
You ask yourself "Why do this? ... why suffer
all this pain?"
But see the joy your kittens bring ... it really
So, when you think of breeders and label them
Think about what they endure to fill another's
When you buy a kitten and with your precious dollars
You only pay with money ... we pay with our heart.
