THANKFUL LONG ISLAND, NEW YORK WOMAN WRITES POEM NOW THAT HER CAT IS HOME!
Yelena Teleshova of Long Island, New York contacted me when her cat Molly went missing. When I communicated with Molly, she told me that it felt like she was lost in an urban maze. Yelena and I tracked Molly for more than six weeks. Molly was found and Yelena told me it was well worth the effort to know that Molly was not suffering and lost.
Yelena wrote a poem afterwards to thank everyone who helped bring Molly home.
MOLLY'S "ODE TO SURVIVAL" POEM by
I composed a poem of thanks to all of you for bringing me back to my family. As you see from the enclosed photographs, I recovered nicely from my ordeal, almost regained all my weight (though I must confess I eat every 5 minutes, but can't help it) - and things are generally looking up for me! Molly's Ode to Survival As, I stand here before you here now So safe and happy, with the ones I love I want to give a grateful loud miaow To all of you who brought me back to life
That frightful night in far away November I knocked the window screen and ran away But mom and dad just moved into the complex The building was too new - I lost my way…
And here my wandering began - I cannot tell you Of all the horrors I went through, to find my way The freezing cold, the constant hunger, all the danger That lurked on every corner, every doorstep, every day
Those rotten crumpets I pulled out from the garbage The sparse food people were throwing my way Oh, how I longed to find my way back to my mommy And to my Dad - my fervent prayers every day..
I had a fighting spirit, from my childhood When homeless, hungry kitten even then I roamed the streets and alleys with my brother Not knowing if I'll find a home again…
The streets have made us tough - and now I'm grateful For the survival skills I learned back then, and now I am alive thanks to those lessons from my childhood Though to this day I I'll never cease to wonder how...
