Shy Angel and Sly Angel

She sat in the park eating her double cheese burger, fries and diet Coke when she spotted two small yellow orange heads. They appeared and then disappeared almost as quickly as they first come into view. Linda had a mission. She was compelled by a force called love to rescue these two abandoned kittens. Once glimpsed in the high grass at the rivers edge she could not abandon them to the harsh late October, early November elements.

Twice a day for two hours at a time she brought them food, and blankets to enable these babies to survive. Though more often than not she couldn’t see them as the cowered in the root structure of a cluster of maple trees, she called out to them with a gentle soothing voice. Day after day she persisted in wooing them. This morning the one she calls Shy Angel came near enough for her to rescue it and bring it home. It is 2 AM and she is holding this terrified baby in her arms stroking its head softly and talking to it in soothing tones.

Earlier tonight she was back at the rivers edge feeding the one she calls Sly Angel and calling out to it in the same soothing voice that called Shy Angel home. After two hours in the cold she came home. Tomorrow morning she will be back at the tree at the rivers edge feeding and once again calling out in love to a kitten she rarely sees.

A loving home awaits Sly Angel if he will but answer Linda’s gentle voice and tender hands. Till that time comes she will go to the maple tree at the rivers edge and call out come home my little Sly Angel. Come home to the warmth and comfort of my secure home my little angel.

As a cat lover, I enjoyed reading this. It's creatively written with a lot of symbolism. Nice work!

This is a charming allegory. You would have done well to write a little more on the plight of the two cats, especially their lost and miserable state – so as to make the allusion to salvation clearer.

I love the analogy...very creative. Great job!
