Foster Kitten’s Grateful Prayer

Foster Kitten's Grateful Prayer
Dear God,
I can’t see or walk very good yet
and I am too little to take care of myself,
so I am grateful that you gave me a foster mom
and a safe place to stay.
Without her, I don’t know where I would be right now.

Not only did she save my life, she also brought my mom into her home and saved the lives of 3 other baby kittens too.

I do understand that as soon as I get old enough, someone is going to adopt me and take me away to my furever home. I am excited about that, but thinking about moving also makes me feel sad. I will miss my foster mom when I go.

Whatever happens God, I have faith that you will guide me down the right path.
Thank you for listening to my prayer.
Now I have to sleep again, because that’s what baby kittens do.
Sweet dreams all!

***My neighbor is a volunteer with the local animal shelter, and she is currently the foster mom to the mother cat and 4 baby kittens in these photos. Even though I have 2 cats of my own, this is the first time that I have ever seen kittens so small. An  interesting experience!

    People who have true compassion for the most helpless of creation are surely the best of folk.

    Those kittens are way too cute.

    • Thanks for the comment, Jim!
      Seeing the trusting faces of the little foster kittens was good for my soul.
      I need some of that faith, to be sure.
      I haven’t been writing too much lately because, 2 years ago, I bought a new house that is now falling apart at the seams–because the builder didn’t bother to compact the area underneath the foundation. Cracking everywhere. The stress has put a big dent in my creativity. I guess it’s about time that I write about that!

    That is so sweet. From the kitten’s point of view makes it even better.

    • Thanks!
      I have often wondered what my 2 older cats are thinking. They don’t have to talk to each other with their voices–they simply use their eyes (kind of like the ‘Vulcan Mind Meld’ from Star Trek). Sometimes the male cat sits and silently stares at me–I usually can figure out what he wants.

    Bless her heart, Mary.
    They are just precious.

  5. What a gorgeous post Mary, thank you for sharing!

    What precious pictures and a very sweet post.

  7. Yes…Those little kittens melt the heart. As I said above, I had never see kittens so small! I have 2 cats, but the male (,Keona)is was 2 months old when we got him (much bigger than 2 or 3 weeks old) , and the female was 1 1/2 (adopted from Siamese rescue). Keona is as big as a small dog now, but he thinks he is the size of a jungle lion. He tries to push me around with his eyes. 😳.
