Dear Dad....er, and Dads,
This year to date sure has been interesting, huh?
I wanted to take this time to say 'thank you' to all of you.
Firstly, to Mr. T, and 'Say' Media, which I am going to call from now Say Hay Media.
I want to thank him because he has cats, and loves cats, thats why he started this place, right?
Mr. T, if you are reading this, the Ruffy Puppy says hello.
Happy Fathers day.
Now, to all of you dads out there....
Thank you for bringing us in from the cold.
Thank you for loving us, playing with us, devising games for us so we don't drive each other crazy.
Thank you for putting food on the table, in our bowls, plates, dishes. Thank you for treats, noms, and chicken and fish and all in between.
Thank you for that special hello and hug or pat at the end of the day when you come in, even when you are so tired you can barely stand.
Thank you for saving us from the cold, the heat, the mean streets, the steel cages, the needle.
Thank you for holding our paws, our hearts, and our purring bodies close, even when our times have come and we must cross that bridge, following the elusive tail of Angel Alex. We know your tears, and promise you that one day we will make you smile again.
Thank you for being a friend, a protector, an advocate. Thank you for never giving up or giving in when it comes to us.
Thank you for your sharing of your life with us, and welcoming us in, even when to do so meant hardship for you.
Thank you for always putting us first, even when those who have never known our wonder or magick looked at you in puzzlement.
Thank you for the magick of your self, dear dad, for the kind heart and kind smile, the gentle hand that gives scritches.
Thank you for the midnight runs for cat food, litter, the vet. Thank you for holding mom close when her eyes leak because she is so worried about us.
Thank you for all you are, a man who may have flaws, but they become insignificant to us, for we are your friend, your familar. We see through to your heart and soul and leap into them with ease-
and on this day, dad, remember that the magick you send forth...always, always comes back to you, with a rumbling purr and half closed eyes in contentment, or perhaps wondering eyes that gaze up at you and say 'hi there again-remember me?' when the heartache seems just too real.
For Dad, we love you, and no matter this place or beyond the bridge, we don't forget or relinquish...we are but a purr away...and that gossimer strong thread that connects us, our lives, our destinies, our souls...well, we are forever linked....
and in you this lesson....
there is gentleness in strength
there is strength in gentleness
with love from Ruffy
and your Furs, the Kew Gardens cats,
and a tribute to the wonderful dads here.
