A Song About Gabriel by Ruth (Monty’s Mom)

 
This is a song by Ruth (Monty’s Mom): Gabriel the Cat’s Song. Ruth has been very sweet to me in writing and singing a song about Gabriel, my semi-feral (now more domesticated) kitten who I am fostering but will adopt. It brought a tear to my eye because when we adopt a cat it changes our lives and the life of the cat. We are their world. There is a big responsibility.

If you don’t know Ruth’s abilities, she has a nice singing voice and she likes to compose. This is her little song about Gabriel:

Quite a long time ago Ruth composed a song about Simon, the brave ship’s cat who won the Dickin Medal, the animal equivalent of the human Victoria Cross (VC).

There is a religious context. Gabriel is a Hebrew name meaning (according to Wikipedia) “Able-bodied one of God” or “messenger of God”.

I believe I am correct in saying that Ruth is a religious person. I am not. Perhaps Gabriel will help me find my God.

      1. LOL! Sure. Go for it!
        When I had my dogs, they would whine and howl every time I sang.
        But, my cats don’t mind at all. I sing all of the time to them, mostly show tunes.

          lol Dee I do too! Do you sing from The Phantom of the Opera at all? Our cats love those songs and so does the Robin who comes in our garden and sings along with me.

      Thanks Ahsan! I just saw this– I’ve been busy. I sent it to Michael because I’d thought of it and thought he might like it. I didn’t know he was going to put it on the site.

  1. What a lovely voice Ruth has, and such a nice little song for Gabriel. I see you have committed yourself to adopting him Michael, good for you, you are meant to be together ๐Ÿ™‚

      Monty has a song. It’s his name sung over and over to the tune of “Good Night Ladies.” It means I’m going to feed him. So now if I sing anything he thinks food might be coming. Why else would I sing but to call him to dinner?

        Wow, I didn’t even know you had put this on PoC, Michael until just now! How funny. I recorded that with my iPhone sitting in my car in a parking lot because the words had just suddenly clicked for me and I didn’t want to forget them.

        Sorry, the tune was not composed especially for Gabriel. It’s from a Christmas/Advent piece I composed many years ago called “God Sent the Angel Gabriel” and it tells the story of Mary and the Angel Gabriel.

        So it was written for your cat’s namesake. I figured that could make it his as well.
