Namaste handsNamaste friends & followers of The Purrfect Pad. Sherri-Ellen here! I think this is the most I have been on our blog! A few nights ago, a poem started to form in my mind….so I started scribbling & this is the result:

…………………..MY LITTLE MYSTERY…………………..

I Share my Life

with this funny furry fellow

whose silly & hyper;

anything but mellow!

He is with me each & every day,

yet what he thinks or feels,

sometimes I can’t really say!

He’s really quite a mystery to me,

yet his being here

makes me most happy.

If only I could ‘unlock’ his mind,

then I’d figure out about his kind!

Siddhartha Henry you’re a puzzling mystery to me,

I hope with me you will always “BE’!!!

  • That is one of the finest odes to a fine feline as I have ever read! You both are magical. I am sure that one day it will all become clear, like bumping heads and rubbing noses bring us closer in more ways than one, one act will have the second meaning, a key that unlocks the mystery…. purrs head bumps and nose rubs to a dear friend.

  • Sweet poem for a most sweet hearted boy……everyone likes a little mystery in their lives – it keeps us on our toes……Siddhartha is special and it takes a special person to raise, love, and live with a special cat! The poem is a keeper – just like HE is! πŸ™‚

  • That really was terrific! Hey, ask the Purrince, he will tell you, but ya gotta listen, and keep asking, and listen again. Eventually he will figure out how to tell you and you will figure out how to hear his answer.

    • Thank you Brian & Terry! I ask him many times a day. I can interpret some things so well & other things I am clueless. I think Siddhartha henry understands English better than I understand Burmese! HAHAHA!!!!! I hope & pray I can ‘decode my ‘DaVinci’ cat before he is a Senior cat….
      {{{hugs}}} Sherri-Ellen

    • Thank you Sue! I wrote the poem by night light Oct. 1st…it just came to me!!
      I thought it would be cute to see a ‘then’ & ‘now’ photo of Siddhartha Henry. He sure was tiny when he came to me!
      Sending the Fab Five lots of *head scratches* }} to you Sue
      Sherri-Ellen & Siddhartha Henry ❀ ❀

  • Your being a mystery is a part of who you are…and you are mysteriously wonderful! We love that love sonnet to P-SH! Its sweet and filled with love and wonder for your precious fur-child.


    • Ah Jack & Pipo & Minko I am teary eyed! This is exactly what I wanted to portray in my peome to P SH!! Thank you for such a wonderful compliment!!!
      {{{hugs}}} to all of you, Sherri-Ellen x0x0x0

  • Your poem is purrfection, as are the photos. As I always say, “Cats are predictably unpredictable.” Siddhartha is just a little more so. Sending you oodles and oodles of love. You both stay in my heart and prayers. XOXOXOXOXO, Aunty Janet and the gang 😻β™₯οΈπŸ’

    • Many thanks Janet!!! I wrote one night in the dark from my heart… that sounds poetic doesn’t it????
      I do not think Siddhartha Henry is unpredictable…..rather I either can’t decipher what he tries to convey to me or we end up at cross purposes. There are times he wants to stay out & I want to come in; so we clash. He wants to play & I want to read. I have to compromise with him & sometimes he has to with me. We are like “The Honeymooners”…I am Alice & he is Ralph>>>rofwl!!!
      Sending you all ❀ LOVE ❀ }} & **head scratchess** Sherri-Ellen

  • WOOOOWWWW great. I hope from now on you two will have wonderful life together like us. His eye looks better. With our love to you both. ❀

    • Thank you sweet Fatos! I know there is still a long way to go to understand Siddhartha Henry; however I also know I love him a lot. I just have to watch him & try to understand what he is telling or showing me. His eye looks amazing doesn’t it??
      Sending ❀ Love ❀ to you & Blackberry from us here
      Sherri-Ellen & Siddhartha Henry x0x0

    • Blessings to you Susan! I finally had an inspiration….it felt good to put words down on paper once again!! thanks for stopping by!!
      {{hugs}} & ❀ Sherri-Ellen & Siddhartha Henry =^,.^=
