Today a friend leapt high over the Bridge
Surprised and with sorrow I left my spot at the Fridge
And then as I leapt up to the Couch back
I saw my angel friend smiling, enjoying a snack
He'd bought me a treat and we sat together awhile
Gosh, did you know we have Cheshire cat smiles?
And he told me that though he was here for a bit
He planned to return and to count on it
And he said 'Ah, Ruffy, I know that I'm missed
I snuggle mom at night-does she know she's been kissed?
Because I love my family-I miss them, you know
I would never leave but was my time to go
Yet you know Ruffy, I'm a cat like no other
I plan on coming back just a different color!'
And after our trout and a call from Dude K
My coal colored friend said he was away
And with a playful 'prrrt?' he touched noses, was gone
I closed my eyes for a nap and I didn't sleep long
for I sent on some energy to his people you, you know-
Because they weren't ready for my friend to go
But I know that so soon they'll be fine
As a differnet color of cat comes to them down the line
But he'll be just who he always was,
A down to earth feline with lots of warm fuzz
And those deep eyes that reflect a deep soul
Even if his coat's different and no longer coal
And so, alas people, don't grieve for too long
At the end of the rainbow you know we go on,
Proof is in mystery that you can't see
Unless you look close-and then it will be
Evident as we sit here a Miracle takes place
For he's the same cat with a different face!
A cat of a Different Color
But a Cat that you'll know,
There is no way to say it, no way to show
But hearts know each other, souls find their way
You'll know his movements, you'll know his play
A cat of a Different Color to welcome into the fold
To hold asa he purrs, welcomed in from the cold....
Dedicated to Jeckel's mom and dad. May they find their Jeckel in a miracle that those who love felines aways do.....

What a beautiful, touching poem, Ruffy. Sending purrs of comfort.
Just splendid, Ruffy. You are as talented as you are handsome. Sending purrs to Jeckel and family.
Ruffy you never cease to enrich us with your beautiful poems. Either a hearty laugh or a tear comes with reading them. Please do not stop them my friend. Our sincere purrs for Jeckel. I had hoped that he could have stayed with his family a bit longer. A salute to you fellow orangeycat
Ruffy, My human's and I thank you so much. Your poem was so lovely, I purred extra hard from all the love. I looked up to Jeckel; he taught me everything I know, including counter surfing! When I was just a kitten, I tought he was rough on me, but it was just tough love. I miss Jeckel lots but I have big paws now since I am now the boss kitty of the house and my parents need me. Your support has helped me be a strong kitty and help my family a bunch. Thank you so much Ruffy; lots of purrs to you.
WOW, mom is in tears~!! I can't say, I don't know, but this poem you wrote for your dear furiend, Jeckle has reached the hearts of us all~!! Thank you Ruffy, thank you mommy~! My mom knows I have traveled far and she also knows I brought MILO to her.. for safe keeping, if only for awhile. Just a different color, just a different time. It's true love is all she knows. But then, humans' do need that love. For we can show them all of it. May Jeckle's pawrents find that love once again...
Thats a great poem my friend. Mommy loved reading it. My Condolences to jeckle's parents. Please let them know I was there to meet Jeckle with open paws and lots of strings. :)
