the Christmas countdown has begun for me . . . which means that i am being bombarded with memories ... the good and the bad ... i find Christmas is the time of year that i reflect on life the most ... i guess everyone’s emotions are set at high ...
this will be our first Christmas without our trusted guard cat, Kitty . . . we had just moved into this cottage and we wanted a loveable feline to complete the picture . . . we drove 2 hours, in a snow storm no less, to pick up our "blue eyed, black, male" kitten . .. which turned out to be a "yellow eyed, almost black, female" who spit at us for 2 days! i chuckle as i think of the tiny, fuzzy, bundle - who later grew into a regal, 20 pound, queen among cats!!! . . . she loved us unconditionally . . . oops, now i’m getting teary - told you emotions are high at Christmas . . .
anyway . . . last march, after 12 years of living with us and loving us, we had to put her down . . . Kitty was in so much pain (she came from a poor gene pool we later discovered, her brother died at the age of 5) . . . now all we have are the lovely lovely memories . . .
do you think there are animals in heaven?
