My vision of home

Eyes open, my mother’s heart beat
Cuddled in a basket with my brothers and sisters
Warm and cozy.

Exploring, everything so welcoming
People having fun, people feeling joy
Home is a very happy place.

Snowy weather, outside the window
I realize, some other cats don’t have a safe spot
I see them wet and cold.

We need a place to call home
Not just cats, but dogs and humans too.
Imagine.

What would they do, where would they go?
Without a home, they would be lost
Inside and out.

Hopefully I can help. I am grateful to have a home.
Does home mean to you the same as it means to me?
