The Baboo Kitty Has Spoken

Each one, teach one....on a Blue Moon Night

I am a comfortable, mango cat guy
A cat who will always know where best to lie
A soft warm couch back, or a pillow I'll find
A filled up food dish, and a daddy who's mine
And I wish the same, for all of the furrs
Out on the lam, and fresh out of purrs

I once roamed the streets, I once shivered with cold
No more a kitten, but not very old
I wound up outside, without a home
All of a sudden left all alone
I found a place to sleep, people fed me
But I was nobody's cat, and it sucks if thats 'free'.

I tried so hard, I was a good boy
I never scratched or bit, I didn't annoy
I would meow to folks, who'd pass me right by
I didn't under stand, I wondered why
As I watched folks sit by their tv
I wondered why sometimes they didn't want me.

And then I found people, who loved all cats
They were special folks, imagine that
I found my way to their place, and into their hearts
I wasn't perfect, but I know I was smart
I came to trust, they forgave me my ways
When the few times I scratched like when I was a stray

And I know they are special, they are, yes, kind
More folks like them are what we need to find
To rescue a fur from a euth list cage
For does it so matter, what breed or what age
We are all cats, divine with magick souls
Miracles in fur, fairytales to be told

So as I look over mom's shoulder tonight
Tears on her cheeks, it doesn't seem right
As the 'list' shows those cats that won't see tomorrow night
I'm grateful for her, for dad for the light
That springs up in the sky, a blue moon thats rare
As miracles unfold, and folks learn how to care

And each one, teach one, find a cat to save
for we deserve to be swept out, we face all so brave
Each one teach one, tell your neighbor and friend
They can stop the darkness, they can stop 'the end'
For as Cats we are Familars, we bring luck and cheer
A myrid of colors of furs, tails and ears
Each one teach one, reach for your feline
Save a life, free a soul, and know the divine
for surely as you reach out and touch that little paw
What's Divine touches back, you'll know what it's all for

And I lick mommys hand and she pats my head
As she scoops me up and says 'Boog, it's time for bed'.
And turns off the puter, and closes her eyes,
As I leap to the sill-the moon lights up the sky
I purr and I reach out to the cat face
For, yes, my Blue Moon, I know your style and your grace
As I purr for the cats out there tonight,
I stand up on my hinds, in the last of the light
and whisper to Alex, and Tigger, Harry and all
Look after them all furrs, use your magick to call
Those folks who are empty and need the magick of furr
Let them find their way, weave the spell with your purrs

Each one teach one, tie the cord with silk
Lighter than sunbeams and purer than milk
Each one teach one, pad cross their dreams
Into their hearts so they know what 'Cat' means
Each one teach one, angels all tonight
Find our furrs homes and all the good things

and with a small purr as my eyes close
I touch my heart to you cross the distance
and feel your warm nose
I understand, and I know, I do
The fate of forever that awaits you
Yet theres that moon, magick surrounds you
I whisper it all to the orb of blue

Each one teach one,
I purr with intent
I love you all, and the magicik is sent
Across the world, purring with faith
All love and light and miracles made
As I whisper to Alex and see her leap far
Just past the follow that star....

Dedicated to all the Cats who face Eternity with rumbling purrs and
for who I must believe....miracles do occur...

this night of the Blue Moon.....

love and light,
Orange Ruffy

What a beautiful poem and yes well said. Mom has always rescued cats, they are the best. Right now Mom can't bring in any more kitties, but one of these days she will do so.

Mr. Ruffy - I too was one of those kitties that probably would not be here if I was not scooped up & rescued from illness & loved. Mine would have been a pleasant end if I had not gotten better, but it surely leads me to have faith. Faith that at least some of us will find the love we all deserve. I hope that moons works it's magic for some more kitties. Momma says you always write so wonderfully & wise. Purrs to you from the quartet of rescued kitties - Felix, Smitty, Tig & Maizy

I missed a word - mine would NOT have been a pleasant end. I guess I need more practice typing on the puter!
