Leo has earned his angel wings~
Dear Leo, beautiful boy~
I'm heartbroken, tears falling, reading your dear Mommy's heart wrenching tribute to her beautiful boy, her Cat of a Lifetime, her furry soul mate.:( I just lost my own beloved Oliver a weeks ago, and the pain of losing him, and so suddenly (as you were taken), still overwhelms me. And apart from your fur color (he was grey), you and he could be twins, not only in looks (your soft and silky "hair like" coat, your flowing mane), but more importantly in your purely precious and beautiful spirits, your ability to love everyone and everything, completely and unconditionally. And I'm not surprised to hear of your adoring fan club, Leo. Kids especially are keen to sense the goodness and kindness in others, human and 4 legged, and in you they knew they had found a friend.
And I understand your Mommy being tempted to dwell on those 18 months. I don't think there is a fur parent alive who doesn't think..."If only," or "I wish I had..." But I hope she won't, for no kitty was ever more loved, more cherished than you, Leo; not in those transitional 18 mos., nor the happy, love filled 5 years that followed. As she says, you gave each other the best you had to give, and no living creature, human or 4 legged, can ask for more than that. I only wish your time together had been longer. Please send down extra big helpings of love to your Mommy, Leo, to comfort her until that wonderful, joyful day when you and she are together again. Until then, I know my Oiver, and all of our beloved fur angels, will be watching over you.
To Leo's Mommy...Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your beautiful best friend with us. He was truly one in a million, a Cat of a Lifetime, and it has hbeen an honor to have had the chance to pay tribute to him, and to the very special bond of love you shared.
