Keyono the Cat: In Loving Memory

Keyono at Halloween
Keyono at Halloween

Black as night, fierce in a fight

Mice feared his kitty might

Bright green eyes that pierce your soul

His eyes seem, to always know

Frisky and fun, but a typical cat

He did not come at the drop of a hat

A devon rex near 17 years

Always happy, never shedding tears

Quiet and calm, frisky and fast

When chasing dogs, he never was last

Pandora his mate, he loved her so much

Biting and clawing for a kitty touch

Catnip his mouth, did he ever savor

Getting him one, was a loving favor

His purring engine never ran low

His affection for all, never was slow

At night he creeped all through the house

Always on the search for an elusive mouse

Many a morning a bare foot did land

On the corpse of a mouse he thought was grand

An alarm clock he was, with prickly claws

Making sure on time to work was all

In loving memory and peace may he rest

Of all the kitties, Keyono's the best.

I am so sorry to hear about Keyono. My cat is my best friend. We had a cat from kittenhood when I was growing up who lived to be just under 16 years old. we were devastated when Katie died. Take care.

Thanks, I appreciate it. Some people who don't have pets or who haven't had one for a long time some times don't understand.

So sorry for your loss. What a lucky kitty to have a family that loved him so much. We lost a special kitty a year ago. My daughter and I wrote a poem/story and she drew the pictures. It was very therapeutic.

I am sorry for your loss. As a fellow animal lover and the owner of two cats I know the love and affection that animals bring. This is a wonderful tribute to your Keyono, you were both lucky to have each other.

A fitting tribute to a loving pet. Our pets are like children and when they leave us we must grieve. Instead of of a grave stone, a poem will do.
