I Adopted Your Cat Today
© 2001 Shell

I adopted your cat today.
The one you left at the pound.
The one you had for ten years
and no longer wanted around.

I adopted your cat today.
Do you know he's lost weight?
Do you know he's scared and depressed
and has lost all faith?

I adopted your cat today.
He had fleas and a cold,
but don't worry --
You've unburdened your load.

I adopted your cat today.
Were you having a baby or moving away?
Did you suddenly develop allergies
or was there no reason he couldn't stay?

I adopted your cat today.
He doesn't play or eat much.
He's very depressed,
but he will learn again to trust.

I adopted your cat today
and here he will stay.
He's found his forever home
and a warm bed to lay.

I adopted your cat today
and I will give him all that he could need.
Patience, love, security, and understanding.
Hopefully, he will forget your selfish deed.


Please remember: Animals are not disposable!
