The Cats Guide To Grief

For Cola

Last year our "Big Face Cola" cat died suddenly. She was only four years old but had grown to a considerable weight of 22 pounds. One very sad night last November 1996, Cola past away while in the hospital. She was there only under observation for a bowel obstruction and her big ol' heart couldn't take it anymore. In the morning I was getting ready to go and pick her up when the doctor called with this terrible news. My son and I were devastated! I wrote a poem for her and she is buried in our back yard with a hand painted head stone rock I did. The poem helped a great deal and to have her still close in the flower garden was wonderful as she loved being out there.

I would love to share this poem if I may, its quite simple but from the heart: Also, as a Christian I believe what the Bible says;" that whatsoever ye shall bind on earth will be bound in heaven." (Matthew 19:18)

ALLOW THE PASSIONATE HEART TO CRY
AND
KNOW ITS HEALING

COLA

In quiet slumber now you rest.
Your hours fleeting by in a starlit night-
Alone you must travel,
In your spirited flight-
For now, sweet Cola,
Heaven's Gate awaits....
Your soul tonight.

There will be a New Day-
In the gardens above,
Where life will be free
Abundant with love.

Until we meet,sweet Cola, once more-
Our hearts will be missing you,
Oh Sweet, Sweet Baby Girl!


Thank you for allowing me to share this. We have another older cat (Sarah) plus after Christmas last year we got a beautiful little Persian that looks like a little cow, (Winter). She has helped fill the void but we will always remember Cola. So to all those who think you are crazy for grieving over your pet....they obviously lack "A Passionate Heart." And you can then realize just how much of a "true friend" you did have in that little animal.
Thank you.

Fran
