And there were Three

So…….yes that is a kitten. That black blur is another. The third is in the top picture.

Tember rescued 3 kittens yesterday. And made me come get them. They were discovered at his dad’s. Whether mom abandoned them or was killed will never know. It is very obvious they are related. They sleep curled together. The little one above eating sleeps on top of the black one.

They are very skittish but slowly seem to be coming around. Given that our animal shelter has a freeze on right now I now have three additional kittens in my apartment when I am only allowed 2. Which would be Lucky and Thomas.

Thomas is slowly moving from hiding to living room. Watching them.

I have given them nicknames. Tiger is in the top picture. Blackie and Itty Bitty are in the second picture. They are running around and playing which is nice to see as they run from me if I move. They have found all the toys and are playing with those as well.

Tember is like me. His heart hurts for animals as does mine. If I win lotto tomorrow this will be moot point as I will be able to buy something. Fingers crossed folks that I do not fall in love and end up with more problems than I want.

King & Queen

You spoke to me today
Looking in my eyes
Playing with my hair
You told me the truth
As I stood here
Vulnerable under your gaze
There is a longing
A need
For you to hold me tight
To hold me near
While I unburden my past
From my lips 
To your ears
Arms around
Whispering 
I have you
As tears threaten to escape
Abuse
Neglect
No one wanted me near
Poison to all who breathed
I stand upon the street corner
Thumbing a ride
I need to run
I need to hide
The pain I bear
The anguish I carry
Overwhelming
Please
Let me hide
You are my King
You hold me tight
Anchor in the night
Chase away the beasts of burden
Carrying nightmares on their back
Baby 
You coo in my ear
My Queen
My Delight
Never more shall pain encompass
Never more shall tears fall
i am you King.
i am your everything
Fight the demons that crave your mind
Crave your pain
I shall gather you in my arms
Forever more
You are safe.
