‘For all that we must not forget’Kit crossed the rainbow bridge on March 31, 2020. He was a declawed, 18 year old senior I got from the pound in 2015 intending to make his golden years as comfortable as possible. The vet called it lung cancer, but I’m pretty sure it was COVID–19.
My cat Jaws was as loyal as a dog and always kept me company while I wrote reviews. I had to put him to sleep in 2015 at age sixteen when he got sick. He was my muse and I still miss him every day. As tribute, this blog is dedicated to Jaws. My mom wrote the poem. My sister did the graphics.
He hissed his way into our hearts
Sharpened claws, oh where to start,
Darting from window to window, never still
Watching for prey upon the hill,
Fighting a possum who dared to be near
His family, his home, nothing to fear,
Looking after the babies and keeping them safe
Just one of his jobs in this place,
Loving to lay in a warm bed
The reading lamp shining upon his head,
We remember this kitty as days go by
And miss our friend who slyly walked bye –
