A Breed Apart Poem by James Donovan

A Breed Apart

Rating: 5.0


My family has a cat named Mia
a purebred Siamese
but she'd prefer you call her
'Miss Mia' if you please.

She is a very pretty cat
with almond colored fur
with pointed ears and ebony paws
and an oriental purr.

Before we got her people asked
why such a special breed?
we told them just you wait and see
she is unique indeed.

Her parents came from Thailand
or so we have been told.
they lived there with an emperor
in a palace made of gold.

They taught their princess to be proud
and hold her head up high
to never mingle with the crowd
but act a little shy.

When she first came to live with us
we had no cause to regret
although she seemed to be aloof
we welcomed our new pet.

She was a playful kitten
with twinkling green eyes
she knew just how to charm us
and how to tantalize.

She'd ask us to come play with her
in her squeaky kitten voice
and though we tried hard to resist
we really had no choice.

As she grew older we soon found
what joy she gave our life
she shared her very special love
with me and with my wife.

But now her twilight days draw near
and we know that soon she'll die
the thought fills us with anguished grief
and makes us start to cry.

We know she'll find a treasured place
cat heaven that's for sure
but we will never quite forget
our Siamese ball of fur.
