There is a reason many of us are up at night
Humans are usually asleep when it’s dark
And with less vehicles driving around
We’re not as likely to be hurt
If I were to get hurt I’d be in big trouble
I’ve got nobody to take care of me
Because I’m just another stray on the street
Nobody is going to have me looked at
It’s a beautiful world that I live in
Full of freedom to do whatever I choose
Life is dangerous for a cat though
So I’ve got to be careful how I enjoy it
Maybe someday I’ll find a permanent home
A place I won’t be chased away from
Living in the yard would be good enough for me
As long as I’m wanted and loved

This beautiful poem is written by David, a big friend of mine. He’s also a big cat lover, and his poems are always beautiful! He’s a really nice, with the heart on the right place, just like a kitty..!
The poem itself? It really did get me thinking about what stray animals have to go through, which is something I’ve never given a whole lot of thought before. They truly do live tough lives. We do a lot for our pets, but only if we’re responsible, loving owners. Animals in abusive situations, or unhealthy situations just might be better of as strays, as sad as that sounds. The topic is certainly food for thought. – David
There are so many organisations in the world who try to raise awareness about stray cats. I have huge respect for those organisation, who are trying their very best to save those cats, to neuter them, and give them a good dose of love. And even help kittens that are young enough to get them socialized and adopted. But why do stray cats need your help? Left unaltered, free-roaming cats continue to reproduce creating more homeless kittens. According to scientific studies, free-roaming cats gain weight and live healthier lives after being altered. By limiting free-roaming cat populations, fewer unwanted and homeless cats are taken to shelters and euthanized.
