These kittens have known no hunger,

They haven’t felt thirst or fear or cold,

They have never been lonely or shunned,

They will not be abandoned or sold.


They play with a carefree joy,

They sleep and they drink and they eat,

And take it for granted that all will be well,

And that life will forever be sweet.


And so it should be for all creatures,

A life free of sorrow and stress,

Love is not a duty, it’s a gift,

Give it freely and you will be blessed.
