‘Allo Mon Amis!
It is moi….your friendly ginger poet back again with today’s poem in honor of the letter “T” !
There are a bazillion things that start with the letter “T” so deciding on just one to write my poem this week was tricky and tough………..but then the lightbulb lit over my little head and I realized that my “T” poem could only be about one thing. I hope you like it!

When I was in the shelter
Just a little tiny baby
I kept seeing humans come into the cat room
I kept hoping and thinking “maybe” !
But not a soul was interested in me
They’d look and then they’d go
The shelter lady said it was because of my extra toes!
People thought I was deformed
Can you imagine that?
How silly can humans sometimes be
About a polydactyl cat!
She said I was a “Hemingway”
Which made me quite unique
I was healthy and very happy
And worth more than just a peek!
My Mom and Dad saw me that day
Mom knew about extra toes
She loved me the instant she saw me
My ginger fur and tiny pink nose.
My toes were just a bonus
Just much more of me to love……
I cuddled right up into her neck
And knew that I’d found LOVE.
(I was adopted by Mom and Dad on February 5, 2000 from the shelter)
Well now, that was fun to write – I’ve always been proud of my extra toes – wanna see some photos? Of course you do…………….I’ve got a LOT of photos of my toesies! Remember, next Thursday we will celebrate the letter “U”………………now that one will be a toughie!
