Ninth LIfe Poetry



My Tale of My Tail;
Cat with Nine Lives

There once was a cat who really did have nine lives
Grateful cuss, each death's new life credited a friend

Then one day, life of eight, his earthly time 'bout up
Before he was looking forward to happy times

But come life number nine he began counting down
Down to the very end, day there would be no more

Notes: 
 1. Fireblossom want us to write our last message with death looming.
 2. The Cat is our daughter's "Amber".  Amber stayed with us for her last life which ended sometime during her 19th year on earth.  Amber was a rescue cat who led a good life. Picture from my other blog, http://jimmiehov.blogspot.com/2007/04/cat-whisperer-and-cat-in-window.html
 3. I have blogged about having nine lives and nine near deaths before, on January 6, 2006 ( http://jimmiehov.blogspot.com/2006/01/my-nine-lives-or-my-near-death.html ).

I feel for the cat, but maybe it was like going to rest.

It is all in our minds of course as cats are natural killers, quick thinking and cope well in danger so they are survivors...but the day always comes eventually his life well lived.

Such a beautiful cat she was. I am glad she lived a long happy life with you and your family.

Sadly, that ninth life comes to an end. I have lost so many kitties, but I have precious memories of each one.
