Cat Heaven – dVerse Open Link Week 119

Here’s my latest entry into the dVerse Open Link – why not take a look at everyone else’s wonderful responses?

This is dedicated to some friends of mine, a lovely couple, who have had a horrible time this year. To top it all, one of their beautiful cats passed away yesterday. They know who they are – this is for them, and their puss.


– Cat Heaven –

In cat heaven, there’s always sunshine
And plenty of places to rest
In cat heaven, no-one disturbs you
In cat heaven, cats always know best

In cat heaven, there’s cream and fresh tuna
And your bowl is full to the brim
In cat heaven, your coat’s always glossy
In cat heaven, you always look trim

In cat heaven, there’s room for cats small and large
Moggies and pedigrees too
In cat heaven, old enemies make friends once more
In cat heaven, no-one is blue

So if you are wondering where I have gone
And you miss stroking my fur
Just think of cat heaven, look way up above
From cat heaven, you’ll hear my purr.

    1. Oh yes, I’m definitely a cat person. In fact, I think that needs to be a discussion had early on in a relationship… πŸ™‚
      I was thinking about our old family cats as well, when I wrote this.

  1. what comforting thoughts….my cat passed away last christmas….there was a boy that once asked me if he would see his dog in heaven and i told him if it is such a marvelous place i would have a hard time believing they would not be there…smiles.

  2. this is a wonderful poem, how selfless of you to write this for your friends and all of us animal lovers who’ve lost dear friends. we have 2 cats and 2 dogs, i work with animals all day, so this piece really resonated. ty for sharing it with us.

    1. Ah, thank you. He was a lovely cat, and I had the pleasure of feeding him a few times whilst his family were on holiday, in years gone by. I am a cat-lover myself – I would like to get one myself, when I am in more settled circumstances.

  3. I really believe that cats & dogs & other beloved pets will be in the same heaven as their human owners….I hope I am right. I am depending on it!
