Well, it seems this challenge has a lot of support.
I sincerely thank all of the members who expressed support. Through remembering there is healing.
May I please be the first to post pics? Believe me, going through my pictures to find some of kitties that were a very important part of my life was painful. Even now I am choked up.
But this thread does not have to be a sad one. We can celebrate their lives and rejoice in the fact we got to share it with them; no matter for how long.
Bandit - my sweet little baby who loved to lie beside me at the computer and sleep. I adopted him to a new home early November of 2008. In January I was told the very distressing news that he had been pts on Christmas Eve.
I often wonder what his outcome would have been had I not let him go.
And my Brownie boy. That marvelous nose of his earned him his name. I lost him this past April to liver disease. He was not quite 3. He was, as the vets called him, the mystery cat. No reason found for his liver issues. I tried for a long time to "make him better". I couldn't.
This picture was actually a malfunction on my camera but I like the effect. It looks like he is looking down at me from above.
One of my favourite memories of my sweetie. He loved that chair in the Catuary.
I am still looking for one of Li'l Momma. I know I have a few of her. Not many. She was a very fast little feral.
