There was a very special cat in my life,
And she was guaranteed to remove any strife.

"Cajun" was her name, and she was a little dear;
Adopted from the pound, she took away the tears.

A little Maine Coon, only eight months old;
When I first saw her, my heart was sold.

She was the one for me; I had no doubt--
She was the one for me, the one I'd carry out.

After filling out the paperwork, she was then mine;
And to her I had already taken a shine.

Got her home, and talked to her in a soft voice;
I was sure that I had made the correct choice.

Like all new cats, she stayed in hiding a few days;
But before long, she was coming out to play.

She was a little charmer, with her cute little quirks;
More than once, she gave my heart a good jerk.

She was a pretty little thing, red, black, and white,
And with her huge, green eyes, she was a sight!

Had long, soft fur and a huge, fluffy tail;
And a cute little meow; oh, how she'd wail!!

She soon was following me around, like a little dog,
And more often than not, we'd have a li'l dialogue!!

She would meow at me for attention and love,
And I am sure she was sent from Heaven above!

She loved things like crawfish, tuna, and other fish;
She didn't care for beef or chicken in her food dish!

She also loved to play and be brushed every day;
And I was happy to do it; this was our way.

She had the loudest purr; she was so loud;
She sounded like a cheetah and seemed so proud!

And each time I'd come home from church or work,
She'd meow loudly at me; it was like clockwork!!

She was my little furry angel, that was for sure;
For 4 1/2 years, our love would endure.

But then came that day, the day she left my life;
And my happy days were now days with strife.

I was moving to a new state, moving far away;
And poor little "Cajun" could no longer stay.

For I was moving to Texas, no pets allowed--
I am sure my face looked like a thundercloud.

I was angry; I didn't want to give her away;
But I had no choice: "Cajun" was to go--today.

The people who claimed her came and went;
And it was an episode I wished I could prevent.

I cried as though my broken heart would break;
To see her go was more than I could bear or take.

Giving up "My Cajun" was the worst thing I did;
And my emotions soon took a terrifying skid.

I was depressed; but I then got ready to leave;
But it was some time before I could cry and grieve.

It was as though a part of me had died;
And it was a day when I cried and cried.

But now "Cajun" is gone; but I can't forget--
For she was the dearest friend I could ever get!!!!

"Cajun" was the best friend I could have ever had. She was my main companion, and she could be guaranteed to chase the blues away. All I would have to do was LOOK at her, and I would laugh; she had such a goofy little expression on her face, or she would look at me funny, and right away, the giggles would erupt!! I will also cherish the memory where she fell into the bathtub while I was taking a bath, getting ready to go to my cousin's wedding; you never saw a cat leap out of the bathtub so fast!! I LAUGHED!!!!...She would also sleep with me, right next to my side; and she would keep me warm on those cold Ohio winter nights. She was such a sweet little thing, and she is still very much missed by me. I loved "My Cajun" so very much!!!!
She will *NEVER* be forgotten!!!! :(

"Cajun" was a tortie Maine Coon (tortoiseshell pattern) with white; she was red, black, orange, and tan, and had white on her chest, belly, and on all four feet. She also had the TEENIEST hint of white on the very tip of her tail. She was a stunning creature, and she was very proud of how she looked. She knew she was beautiful and flaunted that fact EXTREMELY well!!!!

God Bless You, Karen

Oh, this is so sweet, but also so sad. I have had to give up pets before. It really hurts to have to let them go. :-( A wonderful write, but I'm sorry you had to let her go.

I've had my share of pets over the years ani I've learned that cats just don't last as long as people do, yet a person can love them with the greatest and purest love of all and God how it hurts when they are gone. I will put a poem of mine on my page about one of my favorites. By the way I love your poen, it brought a tear to my eye. Vic
