Whiskers and Paws



The things we seek in friends and mates
In our pets we can often find
Building relationships with traits
On foundations with strength to bind

An earnest, true companionship
Both affectionate and playful
Supportive kindness is their trip
Sincerely honest and faithful

The confidences are secured
With our secrets remaining mum
Profound loyalty is inured
To betrayal they won't succumb

Grudges and anger held-at-bay
Genuine warmth in the greeting
With calm, peaceful cuddles they stay
Mutual regard in the treating

Angels with tails, whiskers and paws
Enriching our lives everyday
Deserving respect and applause
Aloneness and stress they allay
