My mother wrote this for my cat, Dusty. He was, and is, my best friend ( my boyfriend runs a VERY close second). we recently had to put him to sleep. This has been his song since he was a kitten

I'm a bean-bag flea bag, I got no bones

I love Emily 'cause she's my home

I walk around beeping when she's not there

And when she comes home, I flop in her hair.

I got a gray tail with a little white tip

I better not chase it 'cause I might trip

One day  I caught it and I bit the end

It said "Ouch! Don't do that 'cause I'm your friend!"

I climb the draps and I flip the plants

I got no manners, I'll climb your pants!

You better watch your bologna 'cause I'll eat your lunch

I even like yogurt! I love to munch

I gotta go now and take my nap

Go find Emily and flop in her lap.

And  when I wake up I'll start again

I'll trash the house the fun never ends!!


**I love you Dusty!**

So sorry for your loss and this peaceful, fun loving write depicts the character Dusty had. He sounds like he was a very loving and faithful companion and I am sure will always be remembered....
