LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF A CAT
by Margaret Trowton


When humans die, they make a will
To leave their homes, and all they have to those they love.

I, too, would make a will, if I could write.

To some poor, wistful, lonely stray

I leave my happy home,

My dish, my cosy bed, my cushioned chair, my toy

The well-loved lap,

The gently stroking hand,

The loving voice,

The place I made in someone's heart,

The love, that at the last

Could help me to a peaceful, painless end

Held in loving arms.



If I should die,

Oh! Do not say:

"No more a pet I'll have

To grieve me by its loss!"

Seek out some lonely, unloved cat

And give my place to him.

This is my legacy

The love I leave behind

'Tis all I have to give.

So lovely... and true. How many times my family have said no more pets after a sad death... its exactly this that changes your mind. When you are an animal lover you just are!

That is so wonderful. Brought a tear to my eye that did.

I always say to Steve that after this lot of pets we won't be getting any more. That poem has really made me think
