Ode to furry friends

All praise to furry friends!
(The real ones, not “furries”)
They purr and my heart mends
They bark and I’m at ease

 Sometimes they poo inside
Or growl when they should not
But I just let it slide
Because they’ve my heart got

 These friends say ‘bye too young
They leave before their time
I think their song’s not sung
They still have lines to rhyme

 But we’ll see them once more
At least that’s what I pray
That they’ll be at the door
When I, too, reach my day.
