Christmas Day

On Christmas Day
the ginger tabby fell off
the garage roof, lay on
the ground crying pitifully

…his back legs and tail
just would not move.

Aunty Jane and Uncle Bob
rushed him to the vet for
an expensive present of
three days Christmas
vet hospital treatment
all to the standard expected
by the ginger tabby cat.

Very severe bruising but
nothing broken he’s home
again reclining on his
comfortable bed receiving
suitable attentions from
passersby his get well
cards on a nearby shelf.

And three times a day
physiotherapy treatment
for back legs and tail
by Aunty Jane.
