A poem for Lucy


Hello again friends,

Just dropping by to thank you all for your kind words, thoughts and prayers after Lucy's passing. It took Sue a little while to bring herself to read the previous blog post and all your lovely comments, but she was very touched when she did.

The Cat Blogosphere is a very kind place. Not everyone out there in the 'real world' knows how much it can mean to lose a feline companion. Here, we are among friends.

I wanted to share with you a poem that our friend Sheila wrote after hearing of Lucy's passing. A short and elegant poem remembering a long and happy life:

Once upon a time
there was a Lucy cat.
Only once,
but for a very long time.

Cheers,
--Kate

(PS: Happy birthday, Sheila.)

That poem was purrfect. Purrs to Sue that her wonderful memories of Lucy will turn her tears to smiles.

Merry Christmas to all of you...and hopes for a Happy New Year!

A lovely poem. Given the inspiration it makes sense, doesn't it :)

Smooches.

That poem is perfect, simple but says it all. We didn't know of Lucy's passing as we were in lock up when you posted about her going to The Bridge.We are sorry for your, and her family's loss.
