It's been 3 months

TRIXIE

I see you in the shadows
You come to visit often
You come to watch over me
How I miss you, sweet brother of mine

Sometimes I get so tired
And I wish you were here with me
It's hard to be without you
sweet Norton, brother of mine

Do you like it in the sunshine?
Are you happy there with Ralph?
Will you come to get me
when it is my time?

I never thought we'd be apart
Not even for a day
But it's been 3 whole months
how I miss you, brother of mine.

Someday we'll be together
Sleeping in the sun
You and me and Ralphie
Together for all time.

So sweet. In our own grief, we sometimes forget how difficult a loss like this is for the feline peers. Thanks for bringing that to the forefront with this touching poem!

Miss Trixie

Angel Norton and Angel Ralphie are watchin ofur you. I knows Norton must miss you bunches, but he will be waiting at the bridge for you when the time calls for you. But now, Miles and Sammy need you as does your Momma.

You wrote a beautiful poem, it made my Momma's eyes leak wif water.

My Momma's eyes got all wetted again. She said I should send you lots of big purrs to make you feel better. That was furry sad that you lost your Brother.

This poem was simply beautiful. It was a touching tribute to a wonderful feline. You're a very talented feline, Miss Trixie.

A very nice tribute to your dear brother Norton. I missed my sister Gracie too when she went to The Bridge. She was only 6 years old. Then Tipper was adopted, then Max, then Misty. I haven't had a quiet moment since!
