"A Pet Memorial Poem for a Cat," written by Constance Jenkins, is a sympathy poem for the death of a cat. The deceased cat is the speaker of the poem, assuring its owner that it had a good life and is now at peace.
Another poem is "Poem for Cats," which is an anonymous sympathy poem that consoles those who have lost a cat. In the poem, God asks a cat if it is ready to die and come home, and though the cat is ready, it claims its humans still want it to live. God does not understand why the cat's humans are grieved to know the cat is passing, because they should know that the cat lives on after death.
