View Full Version : Poem about losing a Pet

Thanks for the replies regarding the anniversary of my cat, Kip's death. Here is a poem given to me then.

They will not go quietly,
the cats who've shared our lives.
In subtle ways they let us know
their spirit still survives.
Old habits still make us think
we hear a meow at the door.
Or step back when we drop
a tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet still go around the place
the food dish used to be,
And, sometimes, coming home at night,
we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends
and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them...
and always will.

Really nice poem ...
It's very difficult to loose a cat .. I felt this last month when my cat disappeared for 4 days .. I was very sad .. every thing did me remember him .. his eat , his favorate places etc .. I cried every time I looked at his photos ..
But when he came back I was full of happiness http://PetoftheDay.com/talk/biggrin.gif
