The Life And Death Of Tiger

Author: Jamie Peterson, 03/03


This poem is about my pet cat who shared 11 years of his life with my family and me…


Too young to remember his exact arrival,
My sister had prayed, but got more than she bargained.

"One kitty," she pleaded, with chief sincerity.
Her prayer-quickly answered, with awesome charity.

Four cats now claimed residence in our one-car-garage:
One mom and three kittens - her entourage.

We gave two away at our parents' request,
To choose the top cats - we did our best.

I chose the one who had suffered brain damage.
My sister though, chose the one who would manage

To live through the shooting by an angry fisherman,
Who shot poor Tiger when he had an accident.

He ate a fish still on the hook,
The single thing that cat ever took.

With a twenty-two rifle, that fisherman shot
My cat through his body, barely missing his heart.

All the way back to my house Tiger limped,
Until I discovered him out by the fence.

His arm was on, but just by a thread,
Impossible it was for this cat to tread

The miles it was to my house from that lake
Where the almost - murder occurred on that fateful day.

We rushed our kitty straight to the vet,
To see what chance of life he would get.

"His arm must come off," the doctor would say,
"For him to survive, it's the only way."

We invested our funds to save our poor cat,
And for many years later he lived after that.

Until one day when we noticed a change:
His attitude and actions were exceedingly strange.

So to the vet we ventured again,
But Tiger had cancer-there was no help for him.

Our love for our pet to this day still remains,
Even though his owner has changed:

He's in God's house now where he'll be till the reunion,
When I pass away, and go on to join him.


I am 16 years old.
