Mancat Monday: In Honor of Caesar

Caesar: April 15, 1991 - January 20, 2008

Rest in peace, glorious Caesar. You will always and forever be one of the finest Mancats on the Cat Blogosphere. We Ballicai love you, and we send our love and purrs and condolences to Prinnie and your precious family.

And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.

Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.
