You hold me captive
Sweet spirit, giving nature
Soft purrs, nuzzles, love

Unwaivering trust
Mesmerizing companion
Safe spot in my heart 

This is Whisper – my heart fur-child!

  1. Both me and my ten year old said AWWW what a lovely pussycat. We too have a fur child, a very spoilt fur child but we love her!

      Whisper, along with the other 8 felines and 3 canines are spoiled royally. We have friends who want to return to earth as one of our “children”! 😀

      We love them all, but Whisper is my dearest ~~~

    Such a lovely kitty. Markings like our Gypsy.

    Always enjoy a cat poem – as you probably know already – thanks for this one, Becca! 🙂

    Happy Sunday night.

    Your kitty looks somewhat like my Hemingway, although yours has a bit more white on its’ muzzle. Mine has six toes and I had to take him to the ER a week ago Friday after 15yrs of health for a nail that had turned in causing an infection but after a week on antibiotics he is back to his ‘ole self again. Nicely done!

      Renee – I visited your blog looking for Hemingway … you should post a side photo of him. Whisper is nearly as old as Hemingway … I have 9 precious feline fur-children, but Whisper is my heart!! Thank you for visiting!!
