Most pets have the use of two eyes,
Some have one or none.
Most pets can hear through both ears,
Some hear a little, some hear nothing at all.
Most pets go potty on a walk or in the yard,
Some wear ‘hot pants’ or go on a special matt inside.
Most pets walk in normal stride,
Some hop along or roll in wheelchairs.
Differences exist between most and some, but does it really mean that much?
All pets have such great big hearts and yearn to feel love’s touch.
Opening your mind, home and heart to a disabled pet will prove one thing for sure,
The love and thanks you'll receive in return will touch your life like never before.
-Lynne Przychodzki, 2004
A disabled tuxedo
crept into my life.
She can’t walk straight,
but she can fight for her life.
She may fall over
a time or two,
her small six pound body
just going askew.
With motor and vision
impairments she grew,
despite respiratory issues
and a swallowing disorder too.
She learns odd vocabulary like
"Slow down" and "All done,"
as she takes countless medications,
from which she may wildly run.
But most of her life
is quite normal, you see,
as she happily purrs
and sits contently by me.
She enjoys life,
plays with the oddest of things.
Not just watching the world,
but being a part of things.
People wonder why
we would want a disabled cat.
Only those who have loved,
would understand that.
