Several posts back I conversed with Richard about the Cat Prayer.
Today I read this.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Police shot and killed a mountain lion that somehow made its way through an urban landscape before it was found early Tuesday in a downtown Santa Monica office building courtyard near an outdoor mall and a bluff-top park that offers tourists views of the ocean and the city’s famed pier.
God bless all pussycats and keep them safe and warm
Especially those who are in heaven.
Give them a safe path to the Rainbow Bridge
And if they had no human friend, help them to find one.
And today especially bless the young mountain kitty
Who needed no human to be his friend
In any way other than to share the planet with him.
Let him have a place where he can roam and live
As wild kitties were meant to do,
Tawny in the daylight,
Silent and soft-pawed in the night,
Free to play and hunt in woodlands where there are no guns,
