A poem for my Chasity

My Chasity


The first day I met you, you were just six weeks old
I fell in love, your beauty to behold
A beautiful, fluffy, black and white kitten
One look at you and I was smitten
Big blue eyes and wild as could be

You ran from me, and I gave chase
Not knowing who would win this race
When you finally gave in
Somehow I knew I would win

Through the years we have had such a time
Our life together is but a rhyme
I love how you watch for me until I come home
Not far from the window would you roam

Or set on a stool while I take a shower
And cry like a baby for an hour
You didn't seem to understand why I liked to get wet
Your are so funny my wonderful pet

I am so glad that God gave you to me
My sweet little kitty Chasity

Chasity the Best Kitty in the Whole world

My beautiful Chasity age 15
My beautiful Chasity age 15
Pretty face
Pretty face
Chasity is setting on my laptop
Chasity is setting on my laptop
Chasity looking pretty
Chasity looking pretty
I love you my dear Kitty cat
I love you my dear Kitty cat

My beloved kitty cat

Here are pics of My Chasity she was born May 1994 and passed away September 2009 she was my best friend, and companion and I loved her so much. She was 15 yrs old. For weeks before she passed she tried to tell me she did not want to leave me. She showed me in many ways. Her vet told me in July that Chasity was only hanging on, because she loved me and didn't want to leave me. She said she could tell. I really believe that Chasity died and came back to me in July as she laid on my chest while we slept one night. I felt her heart stop and her breathing stop. I spoke softly to her and told her that I was going to leave her right there on my chest until morning and my heart starting beating fast. When all of a sudden she popped her head up and started purring. I was glad, but yet as each day went by she grew  weaker and weaker.  I knew I would have to let her go and she knew it too. She had cancer and the vet had said it was just a matter of time. When that day finally arrived she and I were as ready as we could be. But oh, so painful. She sat up for one more picture, that my friend took of her and I and she couldn't set up anymore. I told her I loved her and said goodbye; and with a faint little cry I know she said the same thing to me. I miss her so much, she was a major part of my life and it is hard. The day after she passed I had woke up from a nap and it was so quiet, to quiet. I told God I didn't mind being alone, but not that alone. I went to see my son the next day and a friend came over. It so happened that she had four 3 month old black and white kittens to give away. By Tuesday I had a new kitty. She is such a joy and helps me feel better when I get sad. I really feel that Chasity went to Heaven in July and chose this little kitty for me. And so did God

Thank you, she was with me a long time. It was very hard to let her go. She had a few names I gave her. Sweet pea, my love, best kitty in the whole wide world. Chasipoo, Little love, Sweetheart, honeygirl. I had a lot of cats in my life, but she out shined them all.

Your writing expresses the love your have for Chasity. I had to give my Shiffon(Daisy) to my daughter, as my increasing workload caused me to neglect her. I got her from a puppy mill rescue. She was my baby, followed me everywhere, slept with me, and was my best friend. Now, my daughter, her family, and her job love her. My daughter is administator at an assisted living community, Daisy goes to work with her everyday. The residents love her, and spoil her. She still knows Mom(me),when she comes to visit, or I go up to visit family. She recently needed surgery, it was a family deal, all of us were nervous, and scared, as we all love her dearly. She had a bit of a hard time, but, in the end came out with flying paws. Pets become part of your family.I am so happy that you were blessed with another kitty.

Thank you she was very special, My new kitty Chasi has truly helped me heal from my loss. I am glad you have other family members to love you precious dog. I have a Bible Study class in an Assisted Living home. They did have a kitty named Blossom for all of them to love for many years, but they had to give her up, because they couldn't feed and care for her like they wanted. I am happy the surgery went well. Take care and thanks for the comment.
