In Loving Memory of a Dear Friend

This is my beautiful Kiwi, she has been sick for several months.

Today, I gave her a gift and let her go. She has been a wonderful friend for almost 16 years. I wish I could explain how much she meant to me, but it's hard to put it into words.

Kiwi was always there to warm my feet. She knew when I was sad and she'd hover around me to let me know she was there if I needed love. She greeted me every morning with a chirp, and asked me everyday to slow down for just a little bit, so she could curl up in my lap. She gave me comfort and joy. I hope I gave her half as much as she gave me. I gave a piece of my heart to her and hope she is waiting for me in a greater place when it's my turn.

She was a beautiful, wonderful friend, and so lucky to have had a "Mama" like you.

So sorry to hear that; I bet your kids will miss her too.

If you reach a point where you don't want another cat but you need some cat friends, I know about 70 kitties that would be delighted to meet you.

Good to know about the 70 cats. I will be looking for a kitty in January to befriend our 1 year old calico female named Abby. We'll chat for sure when the time comes.
