‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (at the Shelter)
Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and a wonderful New Year to all!
Several years ago I worked at a local animal shelter, the Humane Society of Ocean City, New Jersey, a no-kill facility with lots of beautiful cats and dogs waiting patiently for homes (and for those who are not adoptable, living out their lives in safety and with love).
I wrote the following poem for the Newsletter during the holidays (the reference to the “floor” cats indicated the cats who were living in the shelter permanently).
I wish a wonderful holiday season to all, human and non-human alike, and I want to dedicate this poem to every single person who lives their life thinking of all creatures great and small and doing their best to avoid causing them harm. 🙂
Merry Christmas, happy holidays and a blessed and beautiful New Year!
