"If cats could talk, they wouldn't." - Nan Porter
"Dogs come when they're called; cats take a message and get back to you later." - Mary Bly
"In ancient times cats were worshipped as gods; they have not forgotten this."

My son and daughter-in-law's cat Lizzie went to Rainbow Bridge yesterday. She was about thirteen years old, and had been sick and miserable for quite some time. Since our granddaughter is only five, she has never known a time when there was no Lizzie. Lizzie had her quirks and a very unique peresonality, but she was a very sweet natured cat. At night when Anne said her prayers, Lizzie would run down the hall and jump on the bed to pray with her. Anne spent the evening of Lizzie's death with us. She loves to be with her grandma and grandpa, and I think this helped. She never mentioned her cat, and I did not want her to talk about it till she was ready. I only wanted her to have fun now. So we went to Dairy Queen and played video games. You can see that even ordering the ice-cream, she is rather somber. But to a child, there's not much that a visit with the grandparents and a huge sugar fix won't help. I hope she sleeps well, and I hope Lizzie will finally rest in peace. All pictures taken by me except the one with Anne as a baby with Liz, taken by my daughter-in-law.
