Lovely Grubly – A tribute

Grub

How I love my dearest Grub.
I will remember you always.
Your gentle nature; your silky fur.
You welcomed me when I came home
and sat alongside me each morning.
You explored the garden
with one brother and then the other,
enjoying and needing their company;
rolling in soft earth with relish.
Finding spots of sun to rest in.
Food and cuddles were your delight.
Your purr brightened every day.
I listen for your little noises.
I look for your warm blackness.
You are in my heart and thoughts,
Always.

We had three beautiful cats. They were brothers. We called them Cuthbert (Bertie), Dibble and Grub. A few years ago we lost our lovely Dibble and two weeks ago we lost our beautiful Grub. Our hearts are sad, but we’ve been so lucky to have them in our lives. We treasure our last cat. He is missing Grub as much as we are.
