Doubt that the stars are fire; Doubt that the sun doth move; Doubt truth to be a liar; But never doubt my love. William Shakespeare
Dearest Friend of all my life, My Dorothy: Peek a boo, I'm thinking of you and looking at this beautiful picture. You have been in Heaven more than 19 years, and every day I cry for you, I dream of you, and then I smile.
Thank you for giving me such a good life. Oh, boy, of all the kitties on earth, to me you were the most beautiful cat I had ever seen. And, believe me, I had seen many. I thought you were the most beautiful kitty the first moment we met. I still remember how very unhappy I was the day I had to come home from the vet's without you. You had been such a strong, tough lady, and I suppose I thought you might live forever. Please know always how much I love you, and that you will live forever in my heart. You are one of the great loves of my life. There are very few people out there on God's green earth who I love as much as you. You made me happy for 12-1/2 years, and those were just wonderful years. I hope you feel the same about me, and I think you do. Wow! I remember the day we met. Way back then. You were in the vet's office, in a cubby, up to your hips in casts. Your tail had to be amputated, but I thought jewelry would more than make up for that, so remember? You had all sorts of necklaces. Poor girl. I was never sure you liked all the necklaces, but you seemed proud to show them off. When I wasn't around, I'd find a necklace draped over a low hanging doorknob. So many surgeries, and a heart that wanted to stop a few times. But, you overcame all those obstacles, and months later I was overjoyed to bring you home. What a wonderful day!! Remember how you used to visit just on weekends until we knew if your health would hold up? Only the two of us could make a 5 day weekend. Then, back to the vet and you'd be so mad. And then, it was forever in my home. You were so mad when Middie, Mother's cat, came to live with us, and you were mad when we moved. BUT, our home was so much bigger and you, Middie and all the rest had so much room that our lives became happy again.
I hope you are having fun at the Bridge, and that you are waiting for me, but in the meantime I wouldn't mind if you rubbed against my legs or kissed me in my sleep. I have Rollo Noel and Ashleigh AnnaBella now, as you know, and the big guy is a little standoffish, but Herself is a warm and wonderful lap cat. In many ways she reminds me of you. I wonder if you can let our pals at the Bridge know I love them and pray to meet them again one beautiful day. I miss you so. I love you so. You made my world a better place.
Rest well, my darling baby, play with my family and all my pets in Heaven, and know that we will be together some beautiful day. I love you. Mom|
