Kitty Fernandes

Kitty you will always be my princess!

You will always be my beautiful, grumpy little baby.
You could just be a pet to others, but to me you were family, like a friend I could talk to.
And everything I said would be listened to even though you did not understand me.
Sometimes we made you mad, but you always forgave us, which was very sweet.
I still think you’re here next to me and you will be supporting me through my life when I most need it.
Thank you so much to give us the opportunity to have you in our lives!
I love you!💘😻💜
Ana-luisa and Catia.

DINSDALE – WHAT A LIFE

True, my name is Dinsdale
And yes, I am a cat,
But I seldom wear pyjamas
And I never wear a hat.

I’ve neither been to Brighton
Nor ridden on a tram
Nor dipped my tail in butterscotch
Nor spread my bum with jam.

They said I punched a pigeon
But those charges never stuck
For any ornithologist
Could see it was a duck.

I never stole a croissant
From a one-eyed dancing fox,
Or tickled rusty penguins
Having pushed them into socks.

I may have trained some cross-eyed fleas
To dribble on the Queen,
But I left them stuck in treacle
On a purple submarine.

I was famous for my patience
And my kindness through out life,
But it didn’t help me learn to drive
Or find myself a wife.

I chased so many butterflies
And climbed so many trees.
I scratched myself so many times
And cursed so many fleas.

My bones are getting creaky now,
My ears don’t work at all.
I stagger round at snails’ pace
And hope that I don’t fall.

I think, perhaps, I’m past my best,
I guess in time we’ll see,
But now I’m off to see the Queen
And pick up my O.B.E.
