For Inigo and Miss Patches

We are so sad about Inigo and Miss Patches
going to the Bridge, and have shed many tears.
We are sending our strongest hugs, purrs and
purrayers to their grieving families ...

Love from Sabrina, Sam, Simon and Momma Jan

God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul.
And, as a cat, I am most able
To decide anything for myself.
Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly.
For my human friends are troubled.
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.
But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined for all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is ... forever and ever and ever.
Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat.
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them.
I just am ... forever and ever and ever.

That is such a terrific poem and so true if we can all just remember all that. What a great tribute to two wonderful cats. Take care.
