*The Following Poem appears in a short book by Nolan Storey called “Chaotic Hope.”  It can be purchased at Blue Cypress Books.



A Cat is a secret keeper,

She’ll give none of yours away.

A cat is a friend in sorrow,

She’ll share your burdens any day.

A cat is there when times are good,

She’ll make your joy deeper.

A cat is there when you fall ill,

She’ll help fend off the reaper.


A cat brings love,

Life, warmth, and beauty.

To feed her and love her back;

your only duty.

A cat’s love

Means never having to face life alone,

My cat’s meows

Keep compassion deep in my bones.
