long lost stray cat,
searching for a home,
loving the feral life
scratching at dependence –
trained to be obsequious

domesticated feline,
running from a cage,
searching for a home,
loving the tamed life –
purring at familiar petting,
groomed to be a wild catch

torn between two worlds,
searching for a home,
curled in self-made prison
to keep the fur clean,
isolated animal –
longing for a home

  1. I love this take on them! 🙂 I’ve felt the same feeling of being torn between two polar opposites in life sometimes.

    I can totally relate. My cats are the now orphaned children of a stray cat. Your blog images are stunning incidentally.

    • Hi poetjena!

      I used to have a cat that was rescued from being a stray. I could feel her same struggles at times. She wanted me near her, but would also lash out if she felt insecure. I can relate to that very much. I am so happy that you enjoy the images. I link to all of them to the original artist, or website where I locate them.
