    Felix was, without question, a good kitty, to good people. There aren't, perhaps, as many good poems to honor a departed cat as there ought to be, or as there are for dogs. But maybe that's appropriate for cats; they don't need many remembrances, only the right ones...

    Little Cat (To Marmie)
    by MJ Falango

    I said goodbye to you today, little cat.
    Fingers caught on bones when I stroked your fur.
    You could scarcely raise your head to drink,
    yet still you calmed me with your purr.

    Were you comfortable curled on the rug?
    And did you know your time drew near?
    Your wide green eyes held gentle love,
    and quiet pain, but showed no fear.

    You slipped away so quietly
    that we weren't sure that you were gone.
    Our bouncy little cat is stilled
    but your spirit lingers on.

    Little ghostcat, where are you?
    Are you happy, are you strong?
    I feel your warmth, your life, your love
    and still can hear your purring song.
