A Breeder’s Prayer

I knew from day one, not every kitten could stay.

Preparing for a confident life took many hours of each day.

I love every minute watching them develop and thrive,

Helping them discover the world fills me with pride.

The weeks are numbered, never enough time;

I worry, even though I know the kittens will be fine.

I trust you with this kitten and hope your understand

I hand-picked YOU and expect you’ll follow my plan.

Continue to provide new experiences each day;

Never stop training your kitten, and always include play.

I will never forget my kittens and will always be here;

Please provide them the best for the rest of their years.

No matter how long ago your furbaby was here,

Not staying in touch is my biggest fear.
