A tabby of beauty
Gray fluff for fur
And eyes so green
She was a tough one
Would have been 19

I'll never forget your meows so loud
Always demanding:
Feed me now!

I'll never forget your noble deeds
Laying under my bed each night
Protecting me from evil beasties

I'll never forget your love for ice cream
Always getting in my face saying:
C'mon gimme!

I'll never forget your sandpaper tongue
Licking us to death
Oh, back when you were young

The once hearty tabby
Seen in photographs
Replaced with skin and bones
So fragile, that cat

Still you made death-defying leaps
Which had us scared you'd break a hip
But today you can't even get out of bed
Not even for ice cream, not one lick

Your fur so full
Now so matted
Meows so mournful
No longer estatic

It breaks my heart
To see you this way
I want nothing more
Than for you to be okay

So

Tomorrow we have to let go
And let you find peace
Just always know
You were a good kitty

. . .

Garbo
Our girl
You would've been 19
Wish you could've seen the day
Wish you didn't have to go away
But I know up there you'll be okay
You'll finally be able to rest and play




 
Rest in peace Garbo. You were the best and prettiest tabby ever (sorry Scout)!!! Tomorrow, once you get to heaven I hope you get ALLLL the ice cream you want, and I hope you reunite with Turk. We all love you!
