Gratitude and Catitude

On Beltane I asked for our cat to be healed or pass on peacefully. Literally hours before we were headed to the vet he started to eat again. He gradually started to gain some weight and get more energy.
We don't know how long he'll hang in there, but we are thankful for each day we have him in our lives.

Farewell Dear Kitty

I am sad to say it is time to say good-bye to our favorite kitty Wallop. I spent half the day crying, and I'm trying real hard not to go there again, and Monday will be his last day.  He's always been an indoor cat, but we will tuck him into the ground in the desert and he will finally be an outdoor cat. Then we will say our farewells and send his spirit off to Bast, the Goddess of cats. At least he got to enjoy his new home for six months. He was a stray kitten we rescued and he had a bad colon so he's had medicine twice a day for many years. Now it is time to let him go. It has been just over half a year that we had to put our other cat down as well.

Okay I'm tearing up again so I'll stop here for now.

When I see these bloom each year, I will think of him.
