"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way. We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully understanding the necessary plan." Irving Townsend
This Angel Kitty is Tabitha "Tabby Kitty"
She was born in the summer of 1995 and we got her that September. She was rescued from a garbage dumpster where she was barely surviving. We were blessed to have her with us until early in 2007. She started life as a feral kitty, but after a brief time she settled into the household and was a sweet although always somewhat wild kitty. She died early in 2007 from an unknown cause. We had her on medication, Prednisone, from September of 2006 throughout her final months with us. She was a survivor and fought hard against whatever was troubling her. She had they thought a brain tumor or some such thing. She died peacefully here with us. She is still missed, especially by Keiko who adopted her in a way and was always grooming her and looking for her if she was not about. God bless our little cat.
This Angel is Rosie. Our Rhodesian Ridgeback baby. She was found as a stray and we brought her here when she was about a year old December 2000.. She was here for just shy of fourteen years and loved to snuggle with the many kitties who came through our door. As Ridgeback dogs are sight hounds we had a time teaching her not to chase after any animal that moved. She was a sweet gentle baby and she will be greatly missed by all of us here.
