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.

- Linda Barnes

Four Feet in Heaven

Your favorite chair is vacant now...
No eager purrs to greet me.
No softly padded paws to run
Ecstatically to meet me.

No coaxing rubs, no plaintive cry
Will say it's time for feeding.
I've put away your bowl, and all
The things you won't be needing;

But I will miss you little friend,
For I could never measure
The happiness you brought me,
The comfort and the pleasure.

And since God put you here to share
In earthly joy and sorrow;
I'm sure there'll be a place for you
In Heaven's bright tomorrow...

- Alice E. Chase

Her Journey's Just Begun

Don't think of her as gone away-
her journey has just begun
life holds many facets
the Earth is only one

Just think of her as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years

Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away

And think of her as living
In the hearts of those she touched
For nothing loved is ever lost-
And she was loved so much.

- Ellen Brenneman

Angel Quotes

According to and old European folktale, when cats were first created they had wings, but they preyed on birds and threatened them with extinction. So god took away their cat wings-though he turned their flutter into a purr, reminding kittens of the time and form which they were most content.

Some say that cats are devils, but they behave badly only when they are alone. When they are among us cats are angels. (George Sand)

If you gave wings to a cat, it would not conscend to be a bird. It would be an angel. (Dick Shawn)

Cats are very special angels, but they're not angelic. Watch what happens when a flock of birds fly by, beneath the clouds. (Elizabeth Hubbard Hall)

Cat angels are the reason there are no mice angels. (Mel Brooks)

God allows cats in heaven just so he can keep an eye on them. (Dixie Carter)

I believe cats to be spirits come to earth. A cat I am sure, could walk on a cloud without coming through. (Jules Verne)

If God created man in his own image, you've got to wonder; in whose image did he create the nobler cat? (unknown)

Is there a place in heaven for cats? Some authors are convinced of it!

It isn't necessary for cats to have wings and a halo to be thought of as angels. Most cats achieve seraphic virtue through the love they give. Authors, Poets, and ssayists have described this pure, God given affection in many ways.

Who can believe there is no soul behind those luminous eyes. (Theophile Gautier)

If cats were allowed in heaven wouldn't we see all these tails hanging down? (Diane Albright)

A cat can't enter Heaven or Hell unless it has used all of its nine lives (American folklore)

If God created animal angels, they would probably be dogs. Cats would consider it a demotion. (Linda Marrow)

The Chinese philosopher Confucius owned a cat and always kept it by his side. He apparantly believed that the cat was sent from heaven to serve as a conduct for divine wisdom.

God is probably a cat person after a day of listening to supplicants try to please him, he probably wouldn't want a dog around. (John Ritter)

A cats idea of heaven would be mice from wall to wall. A mouse's view of heaven would be no cats there at all. (Andrea Stempel)

If a cat had a halo, it would probably wear it around it's tail. It makes a statement. (Sergio Aragones)

The Dance
Written by: Tony Arata
Sung by: Garth Brooks

Looking back on the memory of
The dance we shared 'neath the stars alone
For a moment all the world was right
How could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance

Holding you I held everything
For a moment wasn't I a king
But if I'd only known how the king would fall
Hey who's to say you know I might have chanced it all

And now I'm glad I didn't know
The way it all would end the way it all would go
Our lives are better left to chance I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance

Yes my life is better left to chance
I could have missed the pain but I'd of had to miss the dance

 

A Cat's Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray this cushy life to keep

I pray for toys that look like mice
and warm cushions soft and nice

For grocery bags where I can hide
Just like a tiger croucched inside

I pray for gourmet kitty snacks
and someone nice to scratch my back

For window sills all warm and bright
for shadows to explore by night

I pray I'll always stay real cool
and keep the secret feline rule

To never tell a human that
The world is really run by cats.
