She Didn’t Deserve to Die

From the Heart

Charlene had a sweet disposition.

She was the first to greet me when I opened the door.

One of five of my outdoor cats,

I have to confess, I adore.


They were born during ” Hurricane Charley”

“Charley’s Angels” to me.

Bonded in love from the start,

They were a very close family.


When I looked out of my kitchen window last Friday,

my heart was disturbed to no end.

Charlene was crying out in pain,

seeking help from a friend.


I went out to comfort her,

unaware of the nature of it all.

My son helped take her to the Animal Clinic

where I leraned, to my appall,


She had been poisoned,

By who, or what is a mystery-

but my heart has been saddened

by such a catastrophe..


She is buried in my back yard,

under the shade of a tree-

always to be remembered

for the joy she gave to me.


P.S.  It would be hard to forget that she died on Good Friday.

        I do…my little Ponya is a grey tabby with striking black markings on her. We call her the silver streak because she moves very fast. I also have Eva, a yellow labrador dog with a tender heart and a loyal spirit. I love my little family:) Thank you for asking.

    I am so sorry for your loss. It continues to baffle me why people do such things. I know she gave you great memories and lots of love. God Bless you and Charlie. ❤
