A tribute to Tigger,part angel and part cat!

line count 39

a party to celebrate a most beloved cat!!

I had a celebration--
I know it might seem odd
but when you're a sixteen year old cat.
they ought to feed you cod

or some other really stinky fish
but not freshly-cut flowers;
they said they went to buy something,
and went to happy hour

at the florist down the street;
I should have known the truth--
when people started coming in,
I finally had a clue!

All my human friends were there--
I had made quite a few!!!
Neighbore, church folks and even
mommy's office crew!

We feasted happily on
the best of party food--
then our best neighbor Doctor Knick,
told me I was extra good!

If cats could cry, I would have cried
at all the love I felt--
but the last time that I'd looked,
I'd let my ice cream melt!
