Pouncing with boundless energy and delight, the eternal kitten,
Fearless of all but your own shadow.
Independent, proud, regal as you captured the warmth of the noonday sun.
A ready companion, always the quiet observer, your presence enough.
Those days are coming to an end,
And now we watch and wait,
Love, love, and more love,
As my jungle cat prepares to cross over to her next adventure,
Leaving paw prints on my heart,
And gratitude in her wake.
