Mr. Yeller by Pat Wilmoth / Pat Wilmoth

Mr. Yeller came to us over 9 years ago, so I don’t know his actual age. We had just bought our new house, and one day he showed up and stayed. He was an outside cat and never wanted to be an inside cat. Everyday he would meet me when I came home from work and we would cuddle and he would put his little paws around my neck like he was giving me a hug! I will never forget him…

I explained to St. Peter,
I’d rather stay here,
Outside the pearly gate.
I won’t be a nuisance,
I won’t make any noise.
I’ll be very patient and wait.
I’ll be here, laying in the sun,
No matter how long you may be.
I’d miss you so much, if I went
in alone,
It wouldn’t be Heaven for me.


Goodbye Mr. Yeller...I love you,
Mr. Yeller
