Dear Katie, my sweet little princess,
It has only been 2 days and I miss you so much,the house seems empty without you.
You were the focal point in my disabled life for these last 9 years. I rescued you
to come to live with me after your "mother" passed away in 2009. We spent many hours
outside in my back yard, you exploring the flower gardens and jumping on the picnic table while I sat in my scooter or wheelchair, sitting in my lap, enjoying your treats.
These were the fun times in my life,and although I knew that someday they would end,
I wasn't prepared for it when it finally did on August 4, 2017.
You had been very sick with inflammatory bowel syndrome over the last 6 years with several trips to the vet and cat hospital.
Still with the help of my cat rescue lady, and her adminstration of liquid food and
hydration on several occasions, you came back to me, although each time '1" was subtracted from your "nine lives" counter remainder, one more life less from it.
This time, dear Katie, your counter had run out. At 17 years, the final count had
I will put your ashes in the same sunny window, with your picture to stay with me
as long as I continue to live, in your memory, dear sweet little princess.
I wish; IF I could save time in a bottle, the first thing I'd like to do,
Is to save every day till eternity passes away, just to spend time with you,
IF I could make days last forever, if words could make wishes come true,
I'd save every day like a treasure, and again I would spend them with you,
But there never seems to be enough time to do the things once you've found them,
I've looked around and ought to know, you're the one I wanted to go through time with.
Goodbye my sweet little princess Katie...till we meet again over the Rainbow Bridge.
I'll never forget you.
with everlasting love, Daniel
