Blog #19: Twas the Night Before Christmas 2023

Twas the night before Christmas

And all through the land

Heroes were working to educate

So more would understand.

Our cats don’t deserve hate

For they are like any other critter,

But they need all of our help

To prevent another litter.

So many abandoned to the streets,

Out-of-sight, out-of-mind,

The folks that step up to help

Are the extraordinary kind.

Each donates their time and money,

But why do this they say?

The answer is simple:

It’s the humane way.

Through trap-neuter-vaccinate-return (TNVR),

The number of homeless cats will fall;

This compassionate approach

Gifts better lives for all.

“Now, Dasher! now, Dancer!

On, Cupid and Blizten!

Lend yourself and your hands

So we can do even more fixin’.

Together we will show

That cats’ lives really do matter;

TNVR works

So let the non-believers scatter.

Despite all of the obstacles

Including their position of inferiority,

We must overcome them all

To FINALLY make cats a priority.

Then I heard him exclaim,

Ere he drove out of sight -

“Happy Christmas to all”

And let’s get this right!
