Poem for a late cat
April 15, 2020 9:56 AM   Subscribe

I remember, maybe 6-8 years ago, seeing someone write a poem for their late cat who was an asshole. I believe this was on a personal blog. I am fairly sure either the poem or the surrounding text said something about how their cat would have hated the idea of the rainbow bridge poem. What is this poem?

Best answer: I'm just trolling here, but have you considered Jubilate Agno ("For I will consider my Cat Jeoffry") from the 1700s as the ur version of this?

Thanks, I'm including a copy of this in one of my next round of card mailings to my cat poet friends. Rainbow bridge my furry butt!

That is brilliant. For anyone not in the UK, a Clinton's card is the equivalent of a Hallmark card.

In a similar vein... the dog, for whom I feel nothing.
