LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF A CAT
When humans die, they make a
To leave their homes and all they have to those
I, too, would make a will, if I could write.
To some poor, wistful, lonely stray
I leave my happy home,
My dish, my cosy bed, my cushioned chair, my toy,
The well-loved lap,
The gently stroking hand,
The loving voice,
The place I made in someone’s heart
The love, that at the last
Could help me to a peaceful, painless end
Held in loving arms.
If I should die
Oh! Do not say:
“No more a pet I’ll have
To grieve me by its’ loss”.
Seek out some lonely, unloved cat
And give my place to him.
This is my legacy.
The love I leave behind.
‘Tis all I have to give.

An owner's poem...
Dignified and proud I stand,
And you all jump at my command,
The slightest gesture, slightest sound
Commands respect from all around!
No-one dare pinch my special chair.
No-one defy my baleful stare,
If slight discomfort I endure
Then you'll regret it, be quite sure!
But when my servants all obey,
Then great rewards shall come their way,
I'll let them touch my honoured head -
I'll even creep into their bed!
I'll even sing them my own song
(And keep them up the whole night long)
And give them presents, if I must
(Why do they view them with disgust?)
Yes, I'm the boss and I'm the king!
But oh, alas, there's one small thing
That I can't do - it's such a sin!
Please - open me my cat food tin!!

One of our own volunteer fosteres adopted Lilly last year. She is a great adition to her family and loves to wind up their other cat Mitch. She loves to get in to everything - the sink, the bath you name it!
The family have now adopted Kassie who is proving to be a new playmate for Lilly and giving Mitch a rest! As you can see, they are already firm friends.
