Here is something all the cat lovers will like. Here is a little poem I wrote about her. Her portrait is in one of my previous blogs also titled Ginger.  Ginger was an orange and white female which can be very rare as orange and white cats are usually male. I have had a facination with orange cats for many years now. She lived to a ripe old age of eighteen. She was never a mother but she adopted another kitten we had and as she aged she adopted another kitten. She did loose most of her teeth and became known as the toothless grannie.


There you were

All along in there

Such a pretty little one

Looking up hopefully

“We would like to visit”

“If you please”

You were exquisite

We were escorted to a little room

She brought you in the playroom

You looked up hopefully

While stepping gingerly

Such pretty golden eyes

You purred and purred

Such pretty golden eyes

You rubbed against my legs

You purred and purred

You pleaded as you looked up

“We’ll take her”

She replied in sombre tones

“She would have been euthanized tomorrow”

“No, I don’t have a carrier”

“I’ll carry her”

You cuddled in my arms

Looking up with devotion

Then hiding your head in my coat

You closed your eyes

You purred and purred

All the way home
