One of my four old toms, Socks, died a couple of days before Thanksgiving 2006. I now have Ajax, Scamp, and Yoda remaining of my 17 cats had when I was healthy. My niece buried him for me as I cannot do much anymore being in extreme pain. Yoda, an albino, is my constant companion. They are all my babies no matter how old I or they become.
April 9, 2007: My niece and sister have had to take in my three remaining cats because my health and pain is becoming worse. I am now in my dilapidated old house in the country by myself without even my kid-cats. It is emotionally harsh and lonely. I am ashamed that I could no longer honor my responsibility. I cry often now and try to keep my mind busy so I do not think on it constantly.
June 1, 2007: My cat, Scamp, died today after a short bout of skin and lymphatic cancer. My niece and sister paid $350.00 trying to keep him alive and comfortable. He died at their home due to his disease. We were willing to do all we could to not lose him. We did not have to "put him down". He went when the pain was too much. He was very spirited and loved life and his brother and nephew, who survive him, and the people in his life. I saw him born. I had him 12 years. He is in the Summerlands now, healthy and strong, running free, and I will see him and all my other fur babies there again when the veil is lifted for me. I ask Bast for forgiveness.
My dearest Kevin, I am wishing you the most perfect birthday on the 19th full of fun, laughter and love. You are my cherished and adored friend for life and I am sending you a lot of prayers and love! Happy Birthday and stay forever "29", LOL! Much love.
Kevin, I hope you have a WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY and that all of the good that you put out each day comes back to you ten -fold… I hope that all the people you care about are able to gather around you and show you just how much you are loved…. I hope that you have cake (without too many candles) and ice cream, get plenty of hugs, and laugh until your belly gets sore… you deserve that and so very much more. Thank you for letting me call you “Friend”.
May you always have enough… Peace and Love, Melissa
