Dearest little Eli, what an adorable orange and white boy you are! Such pretty colors, and such a thoughtful look on your face. You have a serious mission which you are performing admirably: helping to heal the grief and heartache of your Purrrrson over losing his/her beloved companion Jasper. Your sweetness and cheerfulness and playing antics and loud lovely purr are just the medicine she/he needs!
Congratulations, Eli, on being selected today's Cat of the Day! We hope you and your Purrrson are enjoying a wonderful day of celebration, full of fun and lovies and exciting things to watch from the windows and all your favorite treats. We bet Jasper Angel is joining in on the fun!
I've been Frosted (thanks, Elyse and Karen!).

Death thought about it.
"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
