Finding Your Forever


For Dennis with Love forever, (Den Den, Half Pint, StinkyTinker, my baby) best paw forward!

You gave me Love and lessons,
You gave me bites and fleas
Now I have to wash my sheets
at 60 plus degrees
I had a big heart to get you,
I gained a bigger heart to let you leave


Now I give you Love and luck
and everything you need
For your new home and special family
You are the kitten of their dreams!
You have a tiny collar
But soon you will have your own ID


I will think of you often,
I thought you’d leave a hole
And whilst there’s an empty space on my settee,
You helped fill my heart and soul
And for that you’ll never be forgotten


You ate and played and napped and ran
Your way into my life
Every milestone made me smile
Since I picked you up that night
I feel your full belly, you eat all that you can
Now your eyes open clear and wide
After I gave them a gentle wipe
How they shine full of hope
I cleaned your glossy fur
I even listened to your noisy purrs
With a stethoscope


Every evening we’d put on the radio, you seemed to enjoy rock
Played hide and seek under my bed, hunting my sports socks
And every day I woke, I looked to you:
Your innocent moustachioed face
You woke needing me, your breakfast and a poo


Your light feet upon my chest
Your croaky, quiet call
You learnt to climb the stairs and beds,
I never let you fall,
And as you clambered up my leg
I realised I like fostering
Without trying to keeping them all!


You gave me Love and lessons,
You gave me bites and fleas
I had a big heart to get you,
I gained a bigger heart to let you leave


You changed me for the better,
My purry, furry friend,
But you deserve to find your forever
It’s your destiny to go
And we both know
For every new beginning,
There has to be an end.


And so,
We both get our new starts
Go well, be strong little one,

It’s time now that we part
