Cupboard Love


Feed me eyes, stared into mine

sharing steak, those same eyes smiled, this will do just fine!

A skinny furred creature at the gate, close to scurrying away, my heart said hello, why not stay?

Scratched, bitten, cuddled, brought presents of mice, birds, some alive, but not many, in fact at first there weren’t any!

Claude, a play on words, I could have called him anything, I never anticipated the joy he would bring.

Fine food lover, a real connoisseur, offering me cupboard love, then a love that became inseparable, mutual, wonderful, valuable company, fussed, he gave more than he ever took, such a beautiful feline look.

A gentle character, with a mean streak, strong, noble, though at times dependant, unapologetically weak.

A loving nature too, unless you were another animal, then he didn’t tolerate you! So, like me, I loved that, about my faithful cat.

I will miss him, in fact I do already, but he was old, on his paws, quite unsteady.

I was with him, at his end, when he took his last breath, peacefully he welcomed the mantle of death.

Thank you Claude, I love you still, my life was much richer when I shared the journey with you!

Claude, my cat died after 16 years being with me constantly! I wrote this to express my affection and appreciation of company kept so joyfully! I wrote it too because I do miss him.
