In Memoriam

Chloe RIP

When God saw you getting tired

And a cure was not to be

He put his arms around you

And whispered come to me

He didn’t like what you went through

And He gave you rest

His garden must be beautiful

He only takes the best

And when we saw you sleeping

So peaceful and free from pain

We wouldn’t wish you back To suffer that again

Today we say goodbye

And as you take your final rest

That garden must be beautiful

Because you are one of the best

Another cat? Perhaps. For love there is also a season; its seeds must be resown. But a family cat is not replaceable like a wornout coat or a set of tires. Each new kitten becomes its own cat, and none is repeated. I am four cats old, measuring out my life in friends that have succeeded but not replaced one another.

Cats are intended to teach us that not everything in nature has a purpose.
