Jasmine



Cat's Prayer

Although I am too proud to beg,
and may appear to be a very independent creature,
I ask for your loving care and attention! I
rely on you for my well being..much more than
you may realize!

This I promise you, my benefactor, that I will
not be a burden on you nor will I demand more of
you than you care to give!

I will be a quiet peaceful island of serenity for
you to gaze upon: a soft soothing body to caress,
and I shall purr with pleasure to rest your
weary ears!

Since I am a gourmet who appreciates different
taste sensations, I pray you will give me a variety
of nutritious foods and fresh water daily!

You know dear friend, how I love to go nap!
Allow me! I pray, a warm sheltered place where
I can rest peacefully and feel secure!

If I am wounded in battle or suffering from
disease, please tend me gently, I pray, and see
that I am treated by loving and competent hands!

Please protect me from the inhuman humans
who would hurt and torture me for their own
amusement! I am accustomed to your gentle
touch and am not always suspicious nor swift
enough to avoid such malicious acts!

In my later years when my senses fail me
and my infirmities become to great to bear,
allow me the comfort and dignity that I
desire for my closing days and help me gently
in my pain or passing!


We know that Jasmine's Mom answered this prayer for her as well as Gizzy & Millie. Wish all our feline relatives would be so lucky as to have happy homes. Until we meet again at the Bridge Jasmine - rest well with Gizzy.

Purrs to Millie, her Mom & Mr Karate....please go visit
Millie & family to give them your purrs
