Memories of Pumpkin
Pumpkin and I chose each other in the January of 1996. He was a little furry bundle, 11 weeks old and one of three litters at the RSPCA shelter in Fairfield, Brisbane. That was the beginning of our wonderful life together, we two.

Pumpkin was my gift ... my gentle loving companion. He made me laugh and kept me sane and was never far away at home. He slept with me at night and during the winter, he'd push his way beneath the bed clothes and curl up by my side for warmth. I only had to reach across to feel his warm furry body in the dark.

When Andy and I married in 2008 and he moved in with us, Pumpy seemed to take great delight in rubbing himself on any of Andy's clothes he found lying around, much to Andy's dismay.

Pumpy especially liked it when we were home together and loved to join us in the garden and 'supervise' our gardening efforts.

He'd also wait at the top of the front stairs for our cars to appear in the street and come down to meet us at the bottom of the driveway shaking his tail with delight.

It broke my heart to let him go. I have my cherished memories of Pumpkin in my heart forever. Though he is not physically with us anymore, I know that he is with me and that we will be together again one day. I sense him with me when I'm in the garden and my heart is full of love for him.


Do not stand at my grave and weep,I am not there, I do not sleep
I am a thousand winds that blow,I am the softly fallen snow
I am the gentle showers of rain,I am the fields of ripening grain
I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush of beautiful birds in circling flight
I am in the star shine of the night
I am in the flowers that bloom, I am in a quiet room
I am in the birds that sing,I am in each lovely thing
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.

Pumpkin, my furry wee friend
You were a lovely wee boy, Pumpy.
I wondered what "pumpycat@hotmail" stood for.
In time I found out who Pumpycat was.

He was the little boy who greeted me at the gate.
The one who loved my scent.
The boy I would pat on the bed over Sarah.
The reason why now the home is a bit emptier.

It's very sad you are gone, it's good I met you.
You had the best Mum
And a Dad that sheds tears for you.

Take care, Pumpy.


8 March 2012 - A Brilliant Rainbow
High on whispered wings I fly, a radiant star, I light the sky.
Toward the sun I soar so free, a brilliant rainbow follows me.
I pulsate through your very soul and in my paws your heart I hold.
The day will come when you'll fly too, I'll be here then to welcome you.
Until the time we meet again, I won't journey far my friend.
For in your love I live so free, a brilliant rainbow guiding me.

Our pets are our teachers, both in life and in death. The memories and the love will always be with us, and their paw prints will remain forever on our soul.

8 March 2013 - Cats Are Wonderful Friends (Author Unknown)
Gentle eyes that see so much,
paws that have the quiet touch,
Purrs to signal "all is well"
and show more love than words could tell.
Graceful movements touched with pride,
a calming presence by our side
A friendship that takes time to grow
Small wonder why we love them so.

Always with me .....
