Inspired by the Texas Tornado's love for cats :-)
Slinky, the incredible baby cat
Born in the wild to a moms regret
Out of all the little kittens that mom had
Slinky is the only one who made the survival list, how sad
Birgitís funniest cat, he was amazing,
to our astonishment even he had persuasion
Milk and Honey Birgit put in a bowl, not too cold
Made slinky meow an approval so bold
We watched him as he matured from a baby kitten
To a handsome tom-cat, oh so smitten
Filled Birgitís heart with Joy,
Just like when she was a baby girl with a toy
She was always happy when Slinky came around
But during our travels we had to leave town
Now Slinkyís faith is out of our hands, thatís tough
But we know he is being taken care of forever
So very well by another animal lover

|the hard part about being a traveler is not being able to keep animals with you. Thank you for sharing Slinky with us.|
|Reviewed by Phyllis Jean Green
|Slinky sounds wonderful. He was happy with you, I know. Had every
reason to be!! Sad you weren't able to keep him. But I'm sure
you found the perfect home. The darling survivor is chasing shadows and cuddling and meowing his way to more milk and honey!

survival list. Cats do have nine

|Birgit and Roger,
Awwwwwwwwwwwww...what a beautiful write of a beloved kitty! I enjoyed this one, and I'm sorry for your loss. Another family, I pray, is taking as good of care of Slinky as you provided.
(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I had three cats I loved so much: Friday, Cajun, and Ouizer; oh, how I miss my babies....

|Was swingin along with this "happy ever after" tail and totally blown away by the unexpected parting... this kinda rocked me almost as much as if darlin Slinky had been my own loss. But due, doubtless, to the headstart in life that your kindness gave him, he must have blessed beyond measure the hearth and home of his new family. And bless you, too, for having the open-handedness to let him go, rather than perhaps to enforce a new lifestyle upon him that he might not have coped with. I am never sure whether we have the pets, or the pets have us... a mutual giving and receiving, I expect! Delightful, thank you. Kate xx|

|Gorgeous cat and great tribute to him! Glad Birgit had it for awhile. We all have to move on at times from all kinds of relationships. Glad he has a good home.

|I care for the feral cats in my neighborhood and I adore each of them. It is a difficult and rather sad life, but I do what I can to lighten their burden. It touches my heart everytime I look at them and see their healthy coats and bright shining eyes, knowing that although they will never be tamed nor will they ever trust humans, they have still been given a chance. Your Slinky is a beauty, I can understand how you fell in love with him.

|It is sad to have to leave a pet. I will always have my German Shhepherd, Princess in my thoughts. Such a beautiful, intelligent dog.|
