LETTER: A poetic plea for pets from a cat owner

Poetic support for the small pet population

What if I were a senior citizen, and all I had was one little pet?

What if I did not drive? With all my funds, I so strived.

What if my pet needed a vet?

I am a responsible pet owner, so for spay or neuter.

The vet, I’ll have to phone her.

But fancy that, there’s a program called KAAP!

They will ‘fix’ my dog, or my cat.

In B.C. alone over 10,000 strays.

KAAP also helps some pets find your home.

Kootenay Animal Assistance Program helped me have a good Christmas.

Kitty Jo Pus was unwell, it was easy to tell.

He likely wouldn’t have made that day.

I am an elder citizen.

And for KAAP, I put a plea in.

Please make a donation.

And help resolve the small pet population.

Joleen Goodwin, Trail
