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.
A bit cheaty, but I’ve unearthed a poem I wrote back a few years ago and submitted to dVerse, in honour of some friends of mine who had just lost their cat. Yesterday was International Cat Day, so it feels somewhat appropriate.
I know there’s a very thin reference to ‘blue’ (although it is about heaven so it is up above us!), but this week is tough on the travelling front for me (a railworkers’ strike, meaning early starts and challenging journeys to and from work). So, inspiration is somewhat lacking this evening!
Please do head on over to dVerse and dive into the blue!
(The cat is my mum’s, called Millie as she came to to family in 2000 at the start of the new millennium).
