St. Gertrude Prayer
St. Gertrude, grant a gentle end,
To cats who suffer at the hands of men.
Cats blinded, scalded, posioned, maimed,
Some, lost pets, seized when unclaimed.
St. Gertrude, hear my prayer this night
And grant them surcease from their plight.
Prayer to St. Gertrude for a Night-Prowling Cat
St. Gertrude, keep my cat all night
From trap or poison, thorn or bite,
From speeding cars and thieving men,
And bring him safely home again.
