How Publishing Really Works gave me Charlie


Today is World Cat Day
To celebrate I’d say
How Charlie came to be
How he was delivered here to me

A writerly non-kitty blogger (gorgeous Jane Smith of How Publishing Really Works)
Sent out an S.O.S.
As Charlie was to be made homeless
So after my Ol kitty Girl died
In my grief, I soon replied

And so on March the 21st
In 2010
, he burst
Into my heart he came
Life’s never been the same!

Charlie says: Rhyming S.O.S with homeless – pure awfulness!



HAPPY silly MONDAY!

Seeing Charlie's big black spot always makes me smile! He was meant to come into your heart, and I know he's been grateful for all you love and good care, Jenn.

I didn't know you when you wrote "She's Gone." I read it now and cried. Then I read the March 21, 2010 and I smiled.
Thank you

What a wonderful poem about getting Charlie! We don't know why but we thought you had had him for a long, long time but it is a little less time than we have been with mum. Charlie always makes us smile and we love your poems Jenn.
