I Know My Cat Loves Me
My sweet kitty is almost thirteen years old
he had an abscessed tooth and a swollen jaw.
I explained to him why he must go to the vet
he understood, was surprised at things he saw.
The abscess had ruptured and broken through
blood covered his face and he felt really bad.
He couldn't eat and was losing weight too
all this was making me feel very very sad.
The Vet checked him over and cleaned him
and said he was a nice cat to be that old.
I had antibiotics to give him twice a day
he was good and did as he was told.
He liked looking out the window of the car
as we came back in the snow that day.
When he was home again he purred so loud
that's how I know my pet loves me and tried to say
I love you to me.
