Last Will and Testament of a Cat

This was in my local CP’s newsletter, and thought I would share for people who think they are betraying their cat’s memory by adopting another cat – you might want to get a tissue though.

I too, would make a will
if I could write.
To some poor, wistful, lonely
stray I leave my happy home.
My dish, my cosy 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 a lonely, unloved cat
And give my place to him.
This is my legacy
The love I leave behind
Tis all I have to give
