The adoption

In an adoption

there’s a process to attachment

when we rescued these little wild boys

(the kittens)

they were frightened, cold, hungry

somewhat shivering with fear of people

thin, bones poking out

we fed them

gave them a safe home 

gentle hands, soft voices, space

beds, hiding places

warm laps, reliable love and food

so now they are thriving

in return, they are affectionate

they have enthusiasm

they have confidence

we feel joy in their growth

their shiny coats

sighs of contentment

their motorboat purrs!

it’s been a worthwhile use of time

to build a relationship with them

their love for us is tangible

they greet us with conversational meows

they want to be near us

they enjoy receiving love

while we enjoy giving it

it’s an ideal circle of love

Lap Kitties created!

I feel so fortunate that it’s summer

(rather than the hectic school year)

so I have time to establish the bond
