An Ode To Catboy

I think of you now, the same as before:

The first MinyCat in our MinyLife for sure.

(Don’t tell GingerPants, but the one I adore.)

You left us directly, abruptly, from the 21st floor.

They called, I came, opened the bag, I saw

Your beautiful body still in shape, thankfully no gore.

In your sleeping state, you remain purrfect and pure

To the very end. Please don’t stir with a pained miaw.

Greeted home from work  daily with a hungry bawl

To fill the food bowl your only flaw;

Integral to a life in Dubai almost four

Years, almost as much as MinyWife, even more

Than the best of friends. My shaking pale paw

Drops the phone, screen smashes. Sod’s Law.

Both of us miss you terribly, though we abhor

The way you left us, through rose-tinted we’ll pore

Through memories tied to our core.

In memoriam of our finest feline friend: Melchior.
