Me! Now! Book

Meow Means Me! Now! by Maggie Bishop


Kittens at Humane Society

Age 0, With Momma

 

I lift my head high and try to see

the blurry shape of others like me.

My kitten-ken are warm and hungry.

We bump and push on Momma’s tummy.

 

What’s this? I ask when a hairless paw

shows me the biggest eyes I ever saw.

“We’ll take him,” rings loudly in my ears.

“Come back at eight weeks,” brings me to tears.

 

Momma!  I cry when back in the nest.

She licks me to set my mind to rest.

It won’t be long ’til you’re on your own.

You’ll train your friends by just the right tone.

 

Hunter and baby on bed

Age 2, Baby Girl

What can I do? I cry out with might.

A little one’s invading this night.

I smell and I sniff, What could this be?

“It’s our new baby,” with delight says She.

 

Baby’s slow to learn, teach her I try.

I repeat ’til I think I could cry.

She says “coo” and “do” but not “meow”

Which everyone knows to mean Me! Now!

 

I was a kitten once, I reply.

I’m almost a teen, I say and sigh.

Ignore her I think, knowing I will not.

She’s my family, that says a lot.
