Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Cat

Last Will and Testament of an Extremely Distinguished Cat
I have little in the way of material things to leave, only my love and magic which I leave to all who have loved me.
To my Friend, I know will mourn the my companions...I ask them to remember me always but not to grieve for me too long. Let them remember that no
cat was ever happier but I have grown ill and pained. It is time to say "Good-Bye." I accept this part of the journey as a natural part of life.
What will come to me after death? I would like to think that I will be joined by companions I've known in life. I will romp in ice-filled fields and every hour will be mealtime. I will spend long evenings in front of fireplaces with logs forever burning and curl up with memories of the love of my special person.
One last request I make. I ask my friend, for the love of me, to have another. No cat can be as distinguished and handsome as I was, but my friend must not ask the impossible.
To that new cat, I've left my handmade Afghan throw and "stairway to the stars" climbing post. I leave him my place on the window perch which I loved so much, and wish him a long, sunny afternoon of snoozing and bird watching.
A few last words, Dear Heart. I have loved you completely and no matter how deep I sleep I shall hear you. Remember that Angels are not allowed to show their wings on earth, though there's no rule against whiskers!

The Greatest Gift
Karla M. Bertram, 11/23/96

I always knew this time would come,
From the very instant our eyes first met.
How I loved you then! How I love you now!
I made a promise then and I keep that promise now . . .
You will not suffer from a pain that will not heal; You will not know
the loss of a life remembered, now gone.

It is for me alone to make this decision, The price for the bright
joy and pure laughter You brought me during the time we shared.
I am the only one who can decide when it is time.
When my hope dies, and my fears ride high, Just when I need you most,
I must let you go.

It is for you alone to tell me when you are ready.
For without your guidance, I will not know When to lay my grief, my
guilt, my anger, My sorrow and my selfish heart aside And give you
this last gift, this greatest gift.
Your eyes will speak to mine, and I will know.

The pain of this moment is excruciating.
Tears stream down my face in a river of sorrow, And my heart drowns
in a pool of grief.
For you have spoken, and I have listened, And unlike other decisions
I have made.
This one brings no relief . . . no comfort . . . no peace.

For if there's one thing you've taught me, If there's only one thing
I've learned. . . .
Unconditional love has a condition after all, I must be willing to
let you go, when you speak to me I must be willing to help you go, if
you cannot go alone.
And I must accept my pain so you can be free of yours.

Go easily now, go quickly now,
Do not linger here, it is time for you to leave.
Go find your strength, go find your youth.
You are free to leave me know, free to let your spirit soar Rest easy
now, your pain will soon be gone.

I pray I will find comfort in my memories . . .
In the dark and lonely days ahead.
I cannot say I will not miss you, I cannot say I will not cry.
For only my tears can heal my broken heart.
But, I promise you this: as long as I live, You will live, alive in
my mind, forever in my heart.

So I give you this last gift, all I have left to give, And this will
be my greatest gift . . . sending you away.
It is the measure of my unconditional love . . .
For only the greatest love can say,
"Good-bye, go find the bridge, we'll meet again, Loving you has been
the greatest gift of all."

To have loved and then said farewell is better than to have never loved at all.
For all of the times that you have stooped and touched my head,
fed me my favorite treat and returned the love that I so unconditionally gave to you......
for the care that you gave to me so unselfishly...
for all of these things I am grateful and thankful.

I ask that you not grieve for the loss but rejoice in the fact that we lived,
loved and touched each other's lives.
My life was fuller because you were there --
not as a master/owner, but as my friend.

Today I am as I was in my youth.
The grass is always green, butterflies flit among the flowers
and the sun shines gently down upon all of God's creatures.
I can run, jump, play and do all of the things that I did in my youth.
There is no sickness, no aching joints, no regrets and no aging.

We await the arrival of our lifelong companions
and know that togetherness is forever.
Companions such as you are so rare and unique.
Don't hold the love that you have within yourself;
give it to another like me and then I will live forever.
For love never really dies, and you are loved
and missed as surely as we are.

Soon it will be 2 yrs since we said good bye and I still can`t get through a day without tear.. I miss you so much. There are two new Angels at the Bridge Dexter & his little brother please watch over them for all the people down here who have been touched by their tiny spirits.

Luv you always,

Cat Poem

They will not go quietly,
The cats who’ve shared our lives.
In subtle ways they let us know
Their spirit still survives.
Old habits still make us think
We hear a meow at the door,
Or step back when we drop
A tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet still go around the place
The food dish used to be,
And, sometimes, coming home at night
We miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends
And a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
Belongs to them . . . and always will.

I`m hoping my Angel dust helps mom type for me without her eyes leaking again. I had a wonderful 10th birthday at the Bridge with all my Angel friends but I did fly down to earth and sat with mom and let her know through Cassie that I am still here even though she can`t see me I will always be near.

Thank you to all that sent Birthday wishes and treats for me it meant a lot to mom to see that I was remembered.

I love you mommy and until we meet at the Bridge remember I`m still here.

Your Angel Salem

A Poem for mom & all who have lost a kitty

From a cat........

When humans die, they make a will
To leave their homes, and all they
Have to those they love.
I too would make a will, if I could write.
To some poor, wistful, lonely stray
I'd leave my happy home,
My dish, my cozy bed, my cushioned chair, my toy,
The well-loved lap,
The gently stroking hand,
The loving voice,
The place I made in someone's heart,
The love, that at the last
Could help me to a peaceful, painless end
Held in loving arms.
If I should die,
Oh! Do not say:
"No more a pet I'll have
To grieve me by its loss."
Seek out some lonely, unloved cat
And give my place to him.
This is my legacy,
The love I leave behind,
'Tis all I have to give.

-- Margaret Trowton --
