So this is where we part, My Friend,
 and you'll run on, around the bend,
 gone from sight, but not from mind,
 new pleasures there you'll surely find.

 I will go on, I'll find the strength,
 life measures quality, not its length.
 One long embrace before you leave,
 share one last look, before I grieve.

 There are others, that much is true,
 but they be they, and they aren't you.
 And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
 will remember well all you've taught.

 Your place I'll hold, you will be missed,
 the fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
 And as you journey to your final rest,
 take with you this...I loved you best.

A Cats Purr

"Cats make one of the most satisfying sounds in the world: they purr ...

A purring cat is a form of high praise, like a gold star on a test paper. It is reinforcement of something we would all like to believe about ourselves - that we are nice."

Roger A Caras
