    Just touching in to say your kindness is appreciated. I will remember Rocky and his life with our family, he filled our hearts, but one day we all join. For now the other two cats need me, they seem most unsettled without him and they must learn to find a new rhythm without him. He was their peacemaker, they've not ever fought so much or gotten on each others nerves as they have since he is gone from their lives. Dear little beings are adjusting harder than the humans.
