I got her when she was five days old,
When someone left her out in the cold.

She was so spunky.
Her meow was so funky.

Her attitude was so fractious.
She even sometimes got jealous.

She hated Channing and Mike.
But truly adored anything tuna-like.

Joey, Pumpkin and Brytin haven't said a word,
But Chris and I feel empty and awkward.

So so so soft was her fur.
She constantly required me to pet her.

She used to fat, and then got so thin.
She'll never lick my cheek again.

She is now gone, I am so sad.
At her I will never again get mad.


  1. I am so sorry, I know what kind of true love an animal can give. I think we can learn a lot from them.Our dog Max teaches us everyday unconditional love. Keep well, keep writing , Lorenza

  2. Thank you for your condolences, Lorenza. It is always encouraging to hear from other pet owners :)

    It was my first ever poem; I am glad it was for her.

    Thank you for reading my blog.

  3. I am so sorry that you have lost a loved one. I know how much this hurts. Have you ever read the Rainbow Bridge poem? I love it...you can google it and find it.

  4. That poem is awesome, Cougar. Thank you so much for sharing. I appreciate your understanding my heartache.

  5. Oh Leslie - I'm soooo sorry. Such a beautiful kitty too! Just adorable! I myself have 5 and admit I tend to forget how loving they can be. My oldest is 14, I'm so worried about her age. But I love her so.

  6. Thanks, Sara. I appreciate your condolences.

    I think my other two cats just figured out yesterday that something is different :( They've been meowing nonstop and constantly right next to me. It might be the heat, but I think they miss Emma.
