In Memory of Miss Lillie

Our dear friend Nose Dive lost her beloved Miss Lillie today. She was quite the cat! For those of you who have lost a pet, you know how sad it can be. So I would like to dedicate my post today to Miss Lillie.

Poem For Cats

And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.

Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.
But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined.
For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

I recently lost my dog and it is REALLY hard. We just have to remember our pets are in a better place now.
