Kittens and Me

by a young man, age 11

Kittens are like me
Really nice, friendly
And my mom thinks I’m cuddly
Kittens are like my stuffed animals
My friends, my buddies
Calicos, black, white, and brownish
My favorite one is Suzie
My big ol’ cat
She lets me carry her, play with her
She gives me love and comfort
We have two kittens at grandma and grandpa’s house
Both tabbies
They’re afraid of Suzie
But they’re still nice to her
Kittens are like me
Scared of having a bad day
But, if someone is hurt, I’ll ask them if they are ok
People like my kindness
