Just a cat


He was just a cat
How can you possibly
Cry about that?

Just a trill of greeting
A paw tap on the door
Eyes half-closed with joy
Small nose touching yours

Soft face rubbing lovingly
The fur which caught your tears

Kitten, adult, frail dependence
Friend of eighteen years.

Just a cat.

  1. This is so heartbreaking, especially when I think of my cats. I never thought I would love cats as much as i do now. They might spend most of the day sleeping, but their mere presence is very comforting. RIP Sooty ❤

    1. Thank you, Ratika! When they get old, they become very dependent. Sooty went blind and would cry out because he couldn’t see me and thought I’d left him alone. I thought I loved him as an adult cat, but when he was frail and old I loved him even more.

      1. I’ve been with cats for only two years so I don’t really know how it is to take care of older ones, but when the time comes, I will not leave them, no matter what.
