Crazy Ol' Cat Lady

I know folks think I'm quite eccentric
With all these cats I've got
They're inside - outside - everywhere!
I have to admit - there's alot!

So they call me "Crazy Ol' Cat Lady"
And who can say what else?
But I don't mind - I really don't
I live very well with myself

It wasn't me who moved away
Or dumped my cat to die
Who never heard those cries of hunger
Or saw those frightened eyes

I'm the one who took them in
When they were all alone
Crazy person that I am
I gave them all a home!

  4. Thanks Ros - I was raised to love and respect animals and I'm glad I was. I passed it on to my kids and they passed it on to my grandchildren. :)

  5. I love what you wrote! I can never call you the crazy cat lady.....then I would be one myself. Coming from someone who also has rescued throw-away cats.....we are compassionate cat lovers who care. Only one of my cats was gotton on purpose as a kitten. The rest have a history of being rescued or the result of a mom cat being rescued. And I did the responsible thing and they are all fixed!!! Hats off to you Louise. Barbara K.

  8. Dear Louise,
    I loved readeing the poem because I too have seven lovely kittens and cats( four cats and three kittens) and they have been given to me by RSPCA to be looked after! I think this poem is a great way to indicate to people that cats too have feelings! I love the poem and the way and words you have used to describe the value of love, compassion, happiness and company that cats bring to your life! Though, may I just ask wether or not you would be able to design a poem about the gifts that cats bring! I have been surfing the internet for one but can't find the right one but I came across your website and so how fantastic it was and I thought to ask you. I would like a poem like that because I am a member of the 'Cats Care Club' (CCC) and together we help each other to look after and rescue cats! I would like to tell and demonstrate the power of poems and the many secrets hidden beneath them!
    Many Thanks,
