Goodbye little friend

They say friends come in all shapes and sizes,

You certainly were proof of that.

I never thought we’d all fall quite so in love,

With such a funny old cat.

Wherever we were, you’d be there.

At home or out for a walk.

You’d come to visit our relatives,

Such tales to tell if cats could talk.

Playing was your specialty,

But you also loved a good fuss.

You’d happily make friends with strangers,

But your favourite was being with us.

Don’t tell me that children don’t need pets,

I can easily prove that they do.

We’re so sorry that you had to leave us,

Life just won’t be the same without you.

“Bagpuss gave a big yawn and settled down to sleep.

And of course when Bagpuss goes to sleep all his friends go to sleep too.

The mice were ornaments on the mouse-organ,

Gabriel and Madeline were just dolls.

And Professor Yaffle was a carved wooden bookend in the shape of a woodpecker.

Even Bagpuss himself once he was asleep was just an old, saggy cloth cat.

Baggy, and a bit loose at the seams.

But Emily loved him.”

Goodnight Jamer, thanks for being our Bagpuss. We all love you and miss you. Sweet dreams.

      Sorry Sarah, didn’t mean to upset you. I still can’t really believe she’s gone, never known a cat with so much personality before. She is greatly missed.x
