G'Night Oliver


Recommended Posts

Never talked about Oliver much. He was just one little kitty who held his own among dogs who came into his life and left. Such a tiny kitty, but great in heart, larger than life.

 

He died sometime in the early hours of the morning. When he didn't come down to greet me this morning, I knew, I just knew.

 

I'll bury him in the back this weekend where the afternoon sun warms his grave. And I'll miss him.

I'm sorry to hear about Oliver, Vicki. We never really get over it totally, do we? Sometimes, the smaller they are, the more it hurts.

They will not go quietly,

the cats who've shared our lives.

In subtle ways they let us know

their spirit still survives.

 

Old habits still make us think

we hear a meow at the door.

Or step back when we drop

a tasty morsel on the floor.

 

Our feet still go around the place

the food dish used to be,

And, sometimes, coming home at night,

we miss them terribly.

 

And although time may bring new friends

and a new food dish to fill,

That one place in our hearts

belongs to them. . . and always will.

Via con Dios, Oliver.
