The big cat that was my pal
"Ode to CC, the Big Ole Cat" by Robert Zimmerman
A feral cat came to our house.
We said, “Let’s take her in.”
She roamed the house with wariness.
Our journey would begin.
I never heard a cat so loud.
The talking never ceased.
All fifteen pounds of Kitty Kat,
was such a gentle beast.
One day I put her in the car
to take her to the vet.
That was the day a heartache came
I never shall forget.
She laid next to my leather shoe
with eyes pained, and forlorn.
I never thought a Kitty Kat
could cause my heart to mourn.
I stroked her fur and rubbed her chin,
my smile long since erased.
Goodbye CC. I’ll miss you girl.
You’ll never be replaced.

Author Notes
Her full name was Carbon Copy because she looked exactly like a five pound black cat that lived with us for 18 years. The difference was CC weighed 15 pounds.
She was my pal and I had trained her to respond to verbal commands.
She lived indoors full time when she came to our house. If someone would accidently let her out, I would call her by name and she would come to me right away.
CC was a feral cat we found "running" with other cats and a couple of dogs.
They all lived around a barn and the day I saw her I wanted to bring her home.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
