In Memoriam-Bonnie Underfoot


And God asked the feline spirit,

"Are you ready to come home?"

"Oh, yes, quite so," replied the precious soul,

"And, as a cat, you know I am most able to decide anything for myself."


"Are you coming then?" asked God.

"Soon," replied the whiskered angel,

"But I must come slowly, for my human friend is troubled

For, you see, she needs me, quite certainly."


"But doesn't she understand?" asked God, "That you'll never leave her?

That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?

That nothing is created or destroyed? It just is....forever and ever and ever."


"Eventually she will understand," replied the glorious cat,

"For I will whisper into her heart that I am always with her,

I just am....forever and ever and ever."


Bonnie, we miss you and love you.

It is very hard to lose a friend like Bonnie, especially since it was so unexpected. Many {{hugs}} to you.

Hi Alexi. I'm sending you belated hugs and thanks for your comment on my blog during the Food Dude's recent illness. Thank you for taking the time to send him good wishes and strength to help keep me on the job as Comfort Cat.

Hugs and purrs, Halloween and her people
