My Poem and short Update.

I don't usually post more than 2 or 3 times a week now, but Ann from Zoolatry sent me this lovely poem and picture. I know she sent it to most of my friends too, but I wanted to share it in case you aren't on her mailing list.

I have had some bad days lately and Monday was particularly bad and mum and dad thought they might have to make the decision for me. They won't rush into any decisions though because they have seen time and again when I appear to have given up the fight, the next day I can be so much better. Tuesday was like that. I slept right through Monday night when I eventually settled, and most of Tuesday.I also started to eat a bit more again. I even played with my nippy toys for a while.

Me and my family appreciate your purrs and prayers for me. They are helping me keep going. Thank you all for being my friends.


A POEM BY FLYNN 


All is quite well, down here on the farm.
With my Mum and my Dad, I'll not come to harm.
     I still will enjoy a runabout for play,
     but also a paws to refresh, maybe rest for a day.
Some days are a bit better than others you see,
but I feel so good, knowing you're there for me!
     I do love getting your purrs, your kisses, your hugs.
     It warms my insides, it makes me feel loved!
Your prayers mean so much, specially now that I'm old,
these good 'n' bad days are normal I'm told.
     Yes, some days are a bit better than others you see,
     but I feel so good knowing you're there for me!

  38. It must be very hard for your mum and dad to have to think about things like that all the time. But you still go outside and patrol a bit, I know, and I'm sure you still purr plenty with your family. Whatever your mum and dad choose, it will be the right thing, because they love you very much, Flynn.

  59. There are lots of good times and warm days ahead, for you Flynnie. We just know it. Aging gives us some good and some bad, it's just life. We accept it and soldier on. If you sleep all day and your comfy , that's not a bad thing at all. Sounds like lots of older and not so older humans. We are praying hard for you, dear.
    We simply cannot bear when we hear that certain decisions might have to be made for you. Our Mum simply cannot bear it, can't not cope. We love you so much. You are our family related by profound love.
    You are the most special boy in the world and there are adventures we've yet to have. Hugs and kisses to you . You are and will always be loved like our own.

    Love,
    Cleopatra and Mom
