A lovely tribute to your dear friend. I too have a cat and she's cool as ever but alas she's getting up there in age and starting to move slower. Her love is unconditional as I'm sure your Charlie was. You really did a fine job with this write-I'm sorry for your loss-
I was never a fan of cats until I owned two, well my kids cats really, one of each sex. The boy was more like a dog. He would chase balls, walk around like he owned the place and had the swagger of a lion. I was so sorry to lose him.
A lovely descriptive honest write. Great to have you back.
Wish I had read this sooner. I would've nominated it. I'm a big animal lover and have an especially soft spot for cats. I lost my sweet little Milo at 2 years and 4 months a year and a half ago. I think about him every day. Wonderful poem.
