Pet Memorial: Gus-Gus

Because of You
By Aileen Walden

Because of you, I brought home a cat we didn’t really need but who made me feel needed.

Because of you, I found friends and a mission with the people who saved you.

Because of you, I discovered the courage to leave my old life behind

and dedicate myself to saving more.


Because of you, I learned that not all angels have wings.

Because of you, I know that even kittens can have old souls.

Because of you, though I wandered, I was never alone

because you live in my heart.


Because of you, there’s a hole in my soul where you used to be.

But because of you, it will fill when the next angel comes along.

All of this, because of you.

In Memory of Augustus Caesar (aka Gus-Gus)

May 1997 to October 2013

Rest Sweet Love. You need not come back again. I’ll see you in the Summer Land.
