My Wendell

Wendell   April 5, 1996   -  October 25, 2010
Wendell has been featured on this blog as his mama from the time he was 6 weeks old I regretfully post this beautiful poem sent to me after his passing into Heaven where I shall not seek to go unless he is there. He was my baby and my love. It's so comforting to have this site to post to.
Poem For Cats

And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.

Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.

...this made me smile, through the tears.

The love he gave to you was reflected in your tender care...Wendell was loved and loved in return.
