A Prayer of Thanks for Our Cat

Blessed and bountiful Creator,

Who gives breath to all living things

for Your praise and our pleasure,

We bless You today for Butternut,

a most regal and elegant companion

for these fourteen years –

co-regent of our home

explorer of our neighborhood
hunter of our backyard

scourge of squirrels and birds

friend of his chosen few.

Now, as we miss his presence ,we bless You

for the caring hands that put him to sleep,
for his resting place among the fields,

in the memories of our hearts,

and in the depths of Your eternal mercies,

Through Jesus Christ our Lord,
Amen.

Leighton
