Telling Americans how much I care ~
Hoping with others my feelings to share ~
Expressing my love for animals everywhere....

Around our nation animals suffer and die.
Neglected, abandoned, discarded pets cry.
I think of them, and I ask the Lord, "Why?"
Millions in shelters are "put to sleep."
Aware of these, I often weep.
Lifeless bodies piled in a heap....
Spaying and neutering can play a part.

Versing my feelings, I pray is a start.
Overpopulation of pets is not smart.
I speak out for the animals' plight.
Compassion I feel for the animals' right.
Every pet deserves a long lifetime bright!



Majestic cat of the wild,
Magnificent one of distinction,
Endangered cat of the Serengeti,
Imperiled to future extinction. . . .

Grand champion sprinter,
Of the African plain,
World's fastest land mammal,
Speed master of the domain.

Flexible spine, to work like a spring,
Slender, lithe, superbly streamlined,
Elegant long legs, a deep chest,
Body built for speed, perfectly designed.

Tawny coat, black rosette-spotted,
Small head, short muzzle, rounded ears,
Notable for beauty and unusual build,
Black streaks on the face resemble tears.

Majestic cat of the wild,
How long will you survive?
Endangered cat of the Serengeti,
How can mankind help you thrive?
