My Warrior

My Warrior

A Poem by Love Well Spent

"This is the true story of my beloved little warrior, of a cat whose love had no barrier..." A poem I wrote after the death of my first cat, Toby.

My Warrior

This is the true story of my beloved little warrior
Of a cat whose love had no barrier
Whose heart was filled with love, loyalty, and compassion
And could lighten your mood in any old fashion

From the first time I saw him, in that white carpeted room
The first thing I noticed was a white tiny plume
Oh, and how tiny he was!
He was my baby, from the first time I held him
And he will always be my baby, till the day I join him

As we drove back to the house, with him in a small cardboard box
He started yowling and clawing like a fox
I looked at my dad and smiled, and thought,
This is quite a feisty one they caught!

And then as we all made it back home
I looked back and told my new kitty
"We're here now, don't worry,"

He was home, and it's like I can imagine him now

Free as a bird, running through the sunlit clouds
His spirit free, his love never forgotten

With eyes the color of the brightest hue
And whose expression was as wild as a tiger in a zoo

Who knew that after being a small little ball of fluff,
He'd grow into a strong, handsome cat so bold and tough?

Let me tell you something, this cat was special in so many ways
He was clever, humorous, and brave
However, despite his ferocious ways
With people he was gentle and knew best when to obey

In fact, I swear he was part dog
He would follow you whenever you went out for a jog
And when you called for him, desiring his attention
He never lacked in giving you that satisfaction

He was quite a character, if you know what I mean
And despite spending his time outdoors, his coat was constantly clean
He was very playful, yet he knew when to stop
And if not, you could always remind him with a little head bop

Not only was he all of this
But he was much more; I could give you a list!
Of a thousand qualities, no other cat could possess
Yes, I know, this cat was truly blessed

His personality was one that was especially unique
In a pet, it's his kind of love that you should seek
Forever will I cherish him and his most treasured interior
Farewell my baby, my angel...

I absolutely love love LOVE this work! It reminds me of my first cat, Kailer, a lost starving stray kitten I found on the farm and tamed and raised as my own--he turned into one of the best friends I ever had in life. Cats are, truly, the most fascinating animals on earth! My respect and admiration for you has definitely gone up--anyone who loves cats has good taste. I have a feeling your kitten would love this poem :)
