Fairy kitten seeks writing companion to help craft the new poem of her life.

Poem: January 15, 2020 – Female Kitten – “Oh Hi!”

“When she first came to me, Poem was definitely the most scared of that group of kittens. She would wedge herself in the corner and hiss when she saw me. I would talk to her and try to pet her, but she was just so scared. I tried enticing her with different foods. She wouldn’t take food from my hand, but just looked up at me with terror. I started leaving the food in front of her. Then, when she started sniffing at it, I would softy pet her back and shoulders.

Now, Poem comes running up to me, begging for food. She is a sweet girl with a giant purr and she pushes her shoulders into my hands for pets. Poem needs a quiet home, with someone that will give her time to adjust/come out of her shell. She is still very easily startled. She doesn’t like quick movements or loud noises. I think she will eventually be a cuddle bug, once she feels safe in her new environment, but she needs a ton of patience and quiet loving.

Poem is a cute little gal! She has a ton of love to give, she just needs some help finding it. She would do best if she has another kitty companion, maybe even her friend Skylla? Or one of the other Homer Kittens?
