Hello everyone,

Today we have a special poem from Ali to Jerry the tuxedo cat.

“Jerry a tuxedo cat, is always dressed for dinner. The elder-statesmen of our home he is particularly fond of turkey, cheese, tuna and the poetry of T.S Eliot. He suffered a devastating loss of his friend Ed 5 years ago, but recovered when he met Hank, who is now his best friend. Jerry and I found each other on a hot July day 13 years ago and he has slept between my knees ever since.”

Let us dine then, you and I,
As the dinner hour is nigh

How I wish I could dine…
