A celebration of the kitties (and their friends) of the CatBlogosphere in verse.

In March of 2007 the fenced in garden, where the cats go out to play, was being remodeled and Ruis escaped. A friendly family let his Mom know that he was in a shelter, which she knew well. When she went to pick him up, she got to talking with the people at the shelter and they told her about an older Persian cat who had been brought in with all her papers. The Mom fell in love with her at once and brought her home along with Ruis. Soraya was very shy with her new people, but not with the other cats, who all took to her at once, except Ruis. Soraya looked very much like the previous Queen of the cats and Ruis, being the present Alpha cat, was very suspicious of Soraya at first. Ruis soon discovered that Soraya had no intentions of trying to be the Queen cat and he came to like her, too. Soraya never did get completely over her shyness and spent most of her time in the bedroom, though she had begun to come out into the living room a bit more. Soraya was mostly dignified and calm, but when the wand toy came out, she played like a kitten. She loved to sleep with her Mom Marlene. One evening she suddenly became very ill and was rushed to the vet. Unfortunately, the vet could do nothing for her. She came home to her family and got lots of attention and love all night. Early in the morning, she made her way to the Rainbow Bridge.
Soraya was a pretty shy cat. A sudden movement would make her scat. She got old and sick; The vet tried ev'ry trick. She found the Bridge on her own, clever cat.
