I Love my Pets
Every morning when I go out to refill the feeders
I can’t help to think that I have taken the responsibility
to see for those birds as if they were my pets
Whether is raining, windy, snowing, sleeting, I think of them
and worry if I’m being late to fill their feeders
When I have to go on vacation or away in business
I leave a person in charge to do care for them the same.
They have become a very important part in my life,
as much as my home pets that I love so much
The difference is that all birds are considered my pets
while my cats are loved individually.
When I look at them eating their seeds so eagerly and
excited, pleases me to know that I helped them
procure a meal that will nourish and keep the survival
rate up, not having to starve for lack of habitats where to
find their meals.
