Till We Meet Again

Our friend Tiki was helped across the Rainbow Bridge yesterday. We're sure that his brothers, sisters and Mommy are all furry sad. We know that Tiki fought as long as he could, but we'll all miss him so much.

The Purry Gates

It seems that I've reached Heaven,
or it's doorstep at any rate,
and been winding round St. Peter's ankles
by the Pearly Gates,
I've plucked the angels' harp strings
and made a merry sound,
But it's plucking at my heartstrings
that you are not around.

So I think I'll sit and wait here,
just outside the door,
And as the souls come floating in,
I'll tap them with my paw,
And when you seek admittance,
they'll rename this place -
It will become Purradise,
and these the Purry Gates!
