A free verse poem about my future cat

Photo by freddie marriage on Unsplash


I can’t wait

to take you home with me.

I’m waiting to snuggle,

play, hug, and kiss you



Welcoming you in my home

will melt my COVID trauma away,

lighten up more rooms in my home,

and kick my loneliness in the buttocks!


You’ll make my life

so much easier,

fulfilling, purposeful, and serene;

you’ll take up enough space

in my mind and heart!


I’m excited to nurse you,

care for you,

adore you,

and protect you.


You’ll be like my daughter

who never talks back,



and just loves me unconditionally.


I won’t have to put up

with anymore social drama,

because I’ll be too busy

obsessing over you!

    Oh my, what a wonderful poem! I love this poem just as much as I love kitties! What a darling name - Phoebe! It is true, fur babies can provide us with so much nurture and love during hard times. I'm so happy you have her. 🥰 Thank you for sharing this wonderful poem!
