Oh, dearest Pyewacket, such a beautiful girl! Such lovely photos of you, first of you amidst the colorful autumn leaves, showing off your bright blue eyes so well as you speak up, and then the one of you and your dear friend Max the Pittie relaxing close together.
Thanks so much to your beloved family for sharing the touching story of your rescue as an infant kitten. Daughter Caitlin found you covered in fleas and goop, and the family members bathed you gently and fed you with an eye dropper. For a week they didn't know if you would make it, but you fought your way back to health. You settled in to being part of the family, becoming best friends with Maximus the pit bull, Max cleaning you and you playing with his tail.. what fun!
You and your family had a precious year together, but then you were tragically lost to a coyote. I am so very sorry. My heart breaks for you all. My very deepest sympathy to your family members and all who love you and miss you and grieve you so deeply. Your time together was shortened but so full of wonderful moments shared and unconditional love and precious memories. May those memories help to bring you peace and comfort. The love you all share is eternal, and you are together always.
Now you are at the Rainbow Bridge, Pyewacket, a glorious Angel, whole and healthy again, watching over your beloved family, sending down your love, and awaiting that grand reunion to take place.. One Fine Day. May God bless you and them all.
I've been Frosted (thanks, Elyse and Karen!).
I meant," said Ipslore bitterly, "what is there in this world that truly makes living worthwhile?"
Death thought about it.
"Cats," he said eventually. "Cats are nice."
