I wrote this poem in the mid to late 1980s. It was an ode to my beautiful silver tabby cat, Fitzbo, who I wrote about in a previous Feline Friday blog post. If you read that post you will recognize the photo!
Her full name was Captain Fitzbattleaxe (First Life Guards) a character in Gilbert & Sullivan’s Utopia operetta. Sorry about the small print, it was originally posted to an old website as a gif file.
