In a cat’s eye, all things belong to cats.
~ English Proverb ~
I have lived with several Zen masters, all of them cats.
~ Eckhart Tolle ~
Thou art the Great Cat, the avenger of the Gods, and the judge of words,
and the president of the sovereign chiefs and the governor of the holy Circle;
thou art indeed…the Great Cat.
~ Inscription on the Royal Tombs at Thebes ~
In memory of Graham
December 5, 1993 – March 13, 2012
A.K.A. Mr. Boy and Grammer T. Boy
(named after Graham Chapman of Monty Python fame)
There was only one like you
a special bond we had
listening to you purr as we slept
cuddling, hugging, traveling, playing
such sweetness nestled close into my shoulder
kneading my hair, (sometimes way too vigorously)
I told you to stop and you meowed your displeasure
assuming your authority when the dogs did something bad
all your mischievous and playful entertainment brought such happiness
Yes, there was only ONE Graham and I miss you constantly under my feet when you want to be fed.
But you are safe and loved overlooking the river where beautiful sunsets paint the sky
where birds fly freely and flowers bloom profusely and horses ride
dried flowers top your dust still from when last I visited
my heart and being remembers you today and everyday
Happy Longer Days! Happy Solstice!
Unless you’ve ever owned a cat, you have no clue of what I speak!
