My Pretty Little Baby Cat

Source

One was white and yellow

One was black and white

My two first babies


A boy and a girl

Entered my life a day in fall

So many years ago


But not too long ago

Another baby girl

Entered my life again

She was grey with black stripes

And she played around with my stuff


And not too long ago

She had five little babies herself

That were black, grey and striped


Four of them are growing fast

But one little baby kitten

Left this world last night


Five weeks ago

She came into this world

But she never saw much of it


With her eyes so blue

She looked at me

Then she fell asleep in my lap

So soft and innocent


My pretty little baby cat

Died in my arms last night

Daisy, I don't want to make anyone cry. This is life. You live and you die. This little kitten was not strong enough to survive. I still have seven cats and I hope three of the kittens can make someone else happy when they get old enough to move to new homes. Thank you Daisy!

So sad and so hard to lose a pet. I can't imagine a life without cats either. They are the joys of our life. Now that the children aren't here and don't need us anymore. Great Hub.

Lord De Cross, we won't be here forever and we never know when our last day comes. It can be in 50 years or tomorrow. The four other kittens give me so much joy. They are very fun to watch when they play around with each other. Thank you for stopping by.

Hi epi, cats are wonderful pets and great company. I now have three grown up cats and four kittens. One of my oldest cats, Tyson, has hurt his foot and is now on medication. I think he has been in a fight. The kittens are so cute and I really enjoy their company, but I will always miss kitten number five who wasn't strong enough to live. Thank you so much for the wishes and the energy. I might need it. I always appreciate your comments. :)

Oh Made, I'm so sorry! I know how hard it is to lose a pet. The heartbreak is overwhelming. Your poem is so sweet and beautiful, and I'm just so glad your beautiful little baby cat fell asleep on your lap surrounded with love and warmth, and not alone somewhere. Kram!

So sad and have been through that. I am looking forward to kittens again, I love them so but my cat is almost 18 years old and I have to wait til her life is over and of course I do not look forward to that.

Hi Jackie Lynnley, wow your cat is old. I'm sure she is a big part of your life. I have two eight year old cats and I hope I'll have them for another eight years. Thank you so much! :)

Thanks for reading, Sunshine. Three out of five kittens have survived. They are doing fine now, playing around and eating a lot. It has been much fun to have kittens, but a couple of sad days too. I appreciate that you shared this hub on fb. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)
