I found this cat prayer online.  It's another step upward in help for me tonight.

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.

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, 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 too 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.

Hear this prayer, my dear friend, my fate depends on you.

Sherry,

 

Thanks for the prayer and pics. Made me watery eyed.  I'm not just a dog person.  I might have mentioned that we live in the country.  You know that means people always think we need more animals!  We've had so many cats.  The pic here is of my daughter's cat.  His name is Naughty, because he was always in to something as a kitten.  He was having a "bad hair day", after his bath. He was born here and since my daughter & family live w/ us again, he's back home.  We call him "NawNaw".  He's quite the lover man.   Since Tuffy passed, NawNaw gives me so much extra attention.  He is so intuitive.

Here are cute prayer's from a book I have called Pets' Letters to God.

Hope they will give you a smile!  Remember, that no matter how painful, your grief is a tribute to how much you loved Tootie and she loved you! 

Like I say "tomorrow's another day, and we'll try again"!

 

Dear God,

Are tigers just huge cats or are cats tiny tigers?

 

 

 

 

  

Dear God,
Is there really a food called "moused" potatoes, or is this just another myth?

 

Dear God,
Is the Morman Tomcat completely out of the question?

 

 

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal;
Love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Tuffy, My Puppy Love

Regina,

Thanks for sharing the prayers and the pic of NawNaw!  They did give me a smile.  I do remember you saying that you lived in the country and you mentioned having two cats that gave birth two days apart to 9 kittens each.  I know what it's like being in the country and having so many babies to love.  It's complete Heaven on Earth!  I'd like to think cats are tiny tigers, since they still have one paw in the jungle.  Morman Tomcat...I get it now.  It didn't dawn on me at first then it hit me.  Many wives and many children. Hilarious!

xoxo, my Okie friend,
Sherry
