Happy Birthday Cleo


Happy Birthday, my Cleo, my darling little Birthday-Girl.
You are five today.
I don’t know your first four and three quarter years.
I wish I did.
I wish with all my heart for you a long life
of the greatest cat-happiness
with your family of Benji and me on Earth
and Flicka and Tigger and Daisy in Heaven
adored by us all.
