Author's Notes

"They say grief is just love with nowhere to go. I hope it reaches my baby kitty, Jinxx, if there is an afterlife, and that he feels the hug and pets and all the love I wasn't able to give to him in his last minutes as I'd hoped I would. And I hope it finds him zooming around like a kitten again, jumping in boxes and attacking things that aren't there (ghost flies) or perhaps sitting in the lap of one of my great aunts, next to Max, my first kitty. Jinxx the Cat 28 Aug 2011 - 25 Sept 2023"

Twelve years.

I count myself rather lucky

to have found you

to have chosen you

to have been chosen by you

to watch you grow and live.

twelve years

of headbutts and

three a.m. zoomies and

little paw pats for attention.

Twelve years

of watching the "ghost flies" and

love nips and

not playing with your toys but loving shiny chains.

Twelve years

of tuna water but never tuna fish and

egg yolk off my fingers and

sandpaper kisses for seemingly no reason.

Twelve years

of claws digging into skin and

paws kneading biscuits in my sweater and

cuddling in bed together.

Twelve years of soft mews.

Twelve years of 'I love you's.
