How beautiful is this? A Cat's Will

Whether a cat dies, is lost or stolen, or must be placed in a new home, this is the place to gather together to give and receive love and support when you experience the loss of a beloved cat.


Knead softly &- carry a big purr

I happened to run across this on the Yahoo Heart Disease group, and I thought it was so beautiful & touching. I am going to put it in Tig's diary too, but I thought more people would see it this way.

From the AngelOnMyShoulders list ...

A Cat's Will

Before humans die, they write their last Will & Testament, giving their home
and all they have to those they leave behind. If, with my paws, I could do
the same, this is what I'd ask...

To a poor and lonely stray I'd give:

- My happy home.
- My bowl & cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys.
- The lap, which I loved so much.
- The hand that stroked my fur & the sweet voice which spoke my name.

I'd Will to the sad, scared shelter cat, the place I had in my human's
loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.

So when I die, please do not say, "I will never have a pet again, for the
loss and pain is more than I can stand."

Instead, go find an unloved cat, one whose life has held no joy or home and
give MY place to HIM.

This is the only thing I can give -- The love I leave behind.

Apollo (In- Memory)

Love Ya !
