Memories of my Kitty Kat


Its been two months now, since I let her go,
Two very long months of grief, depression,
It has not been easy for me.

Fourteen of her precious years she gave me all
Without a doubt shedding not a single tear that is
Until the end for she surely cried, one eye going
Blind, she was a little sick but not ready to die,
I could hear he say! “I’ll be all right in a day or two
As I have never let you down in the past,
Let me have a little quiet a little rest and I shall be as
New. As I shall never let you down as I am your pet”

This day Kitty Kat you looked out the window into my
Aviary as you always do and I noticed you purring
Imitating a little chirp and displaying a little tear, with
Happiness galore as the bird did their thing,
that was the beginning of a day with no indication as to be your last,
Please forgive me my beloved Kitty Kat for what I had to
Do, for this day will never be forgotten I shall forever
Grieve for you, Missing you so much my dear Kitty Kat.

    What a beautiful poem in memory of your cat. Sorry for your loss. I hope you can find comfort in all the good memories you spent together. It is so hard to lose a family pet you have had for years. You conveyed this well in this poem. Very sad, but excellent writing. Sincerely, Connie Webb (Report) Reply
