Doorstep Cat


Someone abandoned a basket at my door
A black and white kitten with two little paws
Perched over the rim with a wary twitch
Scared frozen though I’m sure the itch
Of wanting to flee throbs strong with fear
So I’ll wait a while before I hold him dear
And tell him, from now on, your home is here.

Writer’s Note: Today marks my 3rd year here on WordPress! Thank you readers, for sticking around. =)

  1. Hearty congratulations. May you be here a L-O-N-G time!!
    “Doorstep Cat” started my day “purrr-fectly”! Just magical!


  2. How adorable! I love your picture too, reminds me of a little kitten I once had. You’ve been blogging for three years? Wow, that’s great, I hope you keep going for many more!

    1. Glad I could help you recall a good memory. Yes, I’ve been here a while, but only started blogging frequently since last year. I guess I cheated a bit. *winks*
