Rocket - Rest in Peace

Rocket - 1998 - 2/17/2009

At the moment I have no words to express how I feel........

Gentle eyes
that see so much,
paws that have
the quiet touch.

Purrs to signal
"all is well"
and show more love
than words can tell.

Graceful movements
touched with pride,
a calming presence
by our side.

A friendship
that will last and grow -
small wonder
why we love them so.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss.

I have had to say goodbye to two of my own kitties. It hurts...

If in some far-off, future day,
A stranger's feet should pass this way,
And if his gaze should seek the ground,
Wondering, what lies beneath the mound:
Know that a cat of humble birth
Claims this small portion of the earth.
But I thought not of pedigree,
When, like a child, he came to me,--
A lonely waif, whose piteous cries.
Were mirrored in his frightened eyes.
And so I beg that you will not
Defame or desecrate this spot
By ruthless act or idle jeer,
Though but a cat lies buried here.

So Sorry to hear about Rocket. These companions are very special. David N

The following was written by Rob and sent to me by email:

There is a hole

There is a hole in our home where Nicie once lived.

A space she no longer fills.

A small purring machine who’d lay in our lap

And smother the wintertime chills.

A silence which is growing

And seeming to spread

It’s an emptiness, a longing

A feeling of dread

When she was here she’d get underfoot

She’d trip you if she were able.

She’d let you know she wanted whatever you had

On top of the kitchen table.

Her footfalls were ne’re light

Unless she was sneaking

And her expression quite puzzled

When we were speaking

Heaven help you if you should sing

To let fly a song from your throat

She’d climb up to look into your mouth

As if trying to locate the goat.

There’s a hole in our bed where Nicie once lay

A place she held in esteem

A stillness where she once slumbered away

And busily chased mice in a dream.

There’s a hole in my lap where Nicie once lay

Quiet, soothing and warm

A sanction for rest or invitation to play

Confident in safety from harm

There is a hole in my heart where Nicie once lived

A place that none else can fill

I yet hold a hope for the day

When I’ll find her waiting on heaven’s sill.

My regrets are many as they always are

What I could have or should have done

Remember to love them while they are here

For we always find them suddenly gone.

There is a hole in my soul where Nicie once lived…

For Nicie, our number one cat and member of the family. 1989-2006 You are missed. Rob

I am sorry to read about Rockets passing. Cats are amazing creatures that bring so much into our lives when they let us live with them.

Mike, at the Castle, we "dance" for our friends, whether human or the little sparks of life that are our companions.

Tonight, the Interior and Exterior Guard of Arrghhh Sing a little spark of light to the Great Catnip Farm.

We bid farewell to Little Girl right after Thanksgiving. She'd been Guard Captain of the Interior Guard since 1992. I still look for her on her favorite perch when I come home.

I'm not a "cat guy", but having had many pets before, I feel your loss.
If Rocket was ailing, just feel better knowing he's gone to a better place.
Deepest condolences, Jim

Life was great today joyful and peaceful
are is it death I seek out for tomorrow

Went to the park to feed the birds
are did I die and just don't remember to tell myself about it

Visited a friend and we walked to the mall
why is there blood every where

Oh yea I forgot I shot myself in the head
yesterday, and part of my head is gone

That's why I can't remember any thing
I'm dead, and just hang out for some one to fine me.
