Annabelle

Five years on
Don’t know where
The cat has gone

We bought the house
And her owner left her
Poor Annabelle kitten

There were plenty other
Street cats and kittens
In our neighborhood

Still we put out kibble
For our defacto pet
Annabelle

At first she stayed close
To the house and would
Greet us from the porch

She ran away from
The feral ones
On our street

Terrified
Abandoned animal
On her own

I haven’t seen
Annabelle
In five years

Somehow I know
She’s no longer
Scared
