This poem is for my sister Sally, who shed many tears as she said farewell to her beloved Cassie on 3/29/03:

"Angel cats are just pretend
Just sorrows that will never mend"
But if I believe that, I'm untrue
To someone who loved me and you.
For I have felt my cat's sweet weight
As she cuddles into bed so late
And heard her purrs, and felt her sigh
Mend my grief: sweet lullaby.
Faulty vision? I think not!
An angel cat, off like a shot
For that was how she ran while here:
Now plain sight, now disappear.
Angel cats are surely real
They stay in touch to help us heal
Their fur dries tears that will not dry
And as we mend, our spirits fly.
Dear, Sweet Cassie,
It doesn't seem possible that you are no longer here with us on earth.
For so many years you were your meowmie's faithful, gentle companion!
How long were you with us? 19 years? I know that God sent my sister to
the pound that day, just to find you, fall in love with you, and give you a
loving home for all your days. She loved you so much, Cassie, as I know
you loved her. Unconditional love, that's what we humans learn from our
I will never forget your funny little voice, your beautiful coat, or your
gorgeous blue eyes.
Thank you for appearing to your meowmie to let her know that you made
your transition to The Rainbow Bridge safely. She needed the comfort
that your visit gave her because she misses you so much.
'Til we meet again, Sweet Cassie,
Mewr Auntie Jackie
