Alex adopted me a number of years ago. He actually belonged to the neighbor on the east side of me, yet spent hours hanging
out with his kitty friends that lived with my neighbors to the west. He traveled through my yard going back and forth between
home and friends.

At that time I had been laid off at work and was spending more time in my home office and patio area. Alex began spending more and more time on one of my Adirondack chairs, during which we had great conversations. He is very vocal and expressive. He also started to follow me into the house. He was unbelievably well mannered. I set out a water bowl for him. I was also rather allergic to him.

An allergy prescription and a year later, I set out a food bowl. I still cannot keep Alex in the house overnight (swollen yucky eyes and congestion issues). Yet he knows that he is welcome to join his kitty friends next door in a comfy kitty igloo in the kitties’ house. It’s a perfect arrangement.

Twenty two years
of friendship

then she 
betrayed my trust
betrayed my friendship
betrayed my confidences


she crept into
my yard and
my sweet pet

and when I
tried to contact her
(texting – knock on door)
so I could see my dear
furry creature

she obtained a
against me…

Could there be any greater
betrayal than
to swear (legal document)
that she feared I would be capable
of causing her harm - even death?

What an evil, nasty person she
has become…
she lies to our neighbors
and yet she will put
on her phony persona and
act as if nothing
was amiss…
