Precious Peachy Prince Pumpkin

PRECIOUS PRINCE PUMPKIN


Gorgeous golden and white markings


Striped tail, forever moving,


Expressive huge brown-gold eyes


Mr. Whiskers, white and l-o-n-g —–


Vocal, handsome, sweet, loving


When he wants petting,


Or breakfast.


Adopted at 8, now 16

Brother Coo died at 12.


Pumpkin adores being the only cat,


But misses his companion-buddy.


Memories still sadden me,


So sweet Pumpkin is spoiled.


Likes attention and playing
,


On his terms and time.


Sweet, sweet, sweet


Punkin, Punky,


His loud mee-ow


Wakes the soundest sleeper.


When he is fed,

Then he sleeps-


All morning, afternoon,


Evening and all night too!


“Cats sleep a lot,” they say.


Yes, they do.


Pumpkin proves that fact


Is very true!

Precious Prince Pumpkin!

PUMPKIN

Moved with us from Arizona to Florida.When he died at eighteen. I thought my world would end. Sadness filled my whole being, just as when Coo left.

Auburn gave me two kittens about three months after Pumpkin died. In retrospect, I should’ve waited and grieved longer. Live and learn? Whoever said that made a mistake.

Skimbleshanks, whose name has been shortened to Kymbl, has Pumpkin’s coloring. They could’ve been brothers. Kymbl has Coo’s sweet disposition, and I have another lap cat.

Fozzie is all black with enormous green eyes. He would eat all the time, if we let the food there constantly. He wakes me up between 4:00 and 5:00 AM. Both of them like to eat every six hours. So, numb skull here, feeds them every six hours. Not sure how long that’ll continue.
