Precious Memories!

The one year old cat in this picture was found expired in the ditch by the side of our road earlier this week with minimal injuries. We do not know what happened to him. He is now buried in the corner flower bed by the house. I purchased a fuchsia Bougainvillea to plant on that spot to remember him by. When I acquired him through a freecycle post as a companion for the white kitten we rescued, I named him Precious because he was a very sweet little kitten with a wispy, otherworldly, gentleness about him. Take pictures of your pets. We went from five cats to two this year. The orange tabby I had to surrender to another home because he was simply not getting along with the gang. And the old white cat simply died from old age. Now we still have a black cat, and a white cat. I treasure them more than ever. This morning I notice that the beautiful stray cat that has been spotted occasionally is becoming thin, so I'm going to make an effort to see what he/she might need.

Sorry for your loss, Sarah. We had several cats lost too recently and I'm still not quite over how the way it happened.
I do take a lot of photos of my pets. They are a great source of joy and comfort to me.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Doris :-)
