CATS ARE DYING IN SUCH A DIGNITY WHEN THEIR TIME HAD COME


NOT MANY WORDS-

ONLY FEW:

SUDDENLY PEOPLE BROUGHT THEIR ELDER AN OLD CATS, PERSIANS,

ABESSINIANS, SIAM CATS …

THEY WANTED NOT TO BRING THEM TO EUTHANIZE,

THEY HEARD WE WOULD GIVE THEM A HOME

AND THEY LIVED A LONG TIME WITH US

WHEN THEY STARTED TO DY, TO A GOD-GIVEN TIME-POINT,

THEY DEVELOPED A VERY TOUCHING BEHAVIOUR:

THEY LIFTED UP THEIR HEAD, OFTEN SKINNY, VERY OLD, CATS,

AND WENT THROUGH OUR HOUSE –

TOTALLY FEARLESS

THEY DO NOT RUN

OUR STRAYDOGGANG DIDN´T HUNT THEM

THEY WENT THROUGH OUR HOUSE AND OUR CAT-GARDEN

SLOWLY, LIKE KINGS, THROUGH THEIR  KINGDOM

THEY WENT IN EACH CORNER

IN EACH ROOM

THE LAST NIGHT THEY CAME INTO MY BED -ON MY FEET –

AND I KNOW THEY WOULD SAY GOOD BYE

SLOWLY, STILL, NO CRY

NEXT MORNING – I KNOW – THEY DIED

IT WAS SUCH A DIGNITY AROUND THEM

AROUND THEIR DYING

A DYING ACCURAT ON THAT TIME-POINT THEY HAD TO GO

AND I ALWAYS, in spite off, I FELT THE LOSS SO STRONG,

I KNEW: THIS WAS EXACT THE RIGHT TIME FOR THIS BELOVED CAT, TO LEAVE US.

THANKFUL WE STAYED BEHIND,
