Oscar Cat

This afternoon I helped a friend inter the ashes of her beloved cat, Oscar, who had to be escorted to the Pearly Catflap on St Francis Day - 4th October. It was his time as he was suffering from heart failure. Oscar was a real character and is much missed.
Oscar Cat ~

Rest gently now and at peace
in the ground
of your guarding.
May the earth you knew and prowled in life,
hold your remains safely in death.

On the far side of the Pearly Catflap,
may you experience 
the companionship of you Catcestors,
at the place where
Bastet-Ailuros presides,
and all cats,
wild and tame, great and small,
who have gone before you
find welcome and release.

If you would like to use the words I created for Oscar Cat for your own feline companion at his or her burial, please feel free to do so.
