passed away yesterday, at home, at 11:15 am.
to climb trees,
climb up to the roof and oversee everything,
eat potatoes (fried, baked, mashed…) and pizza crust,
curl up every evening in sam’s lap (i had to sometimes bribe her for a piece of sam’s lap myself),
wander in the woods,
sit on the bathroom counter-top & stare out the window,
chase lizards, squirrels, burrowing moles…pretty much anything that moved!
she will still be doing all these things!
now, she’s free…to go where ever & when ever she pleases!
“What greater gift than the love of a cat.” ~Charles Dickens
milo was like a dog.
she would come when you called her name.
she would follow us around the trails.
she was our furry baby.
an 80 something year old baby…in cat years!
milo had a long & happy life!!
she will be missed.
we wrapped her up in towels,
with two turkey feathers she used to like to play with…
and her favorite little catnip toy.
we buried her out back…just before sunset.
i made a marker, using my woodburning tool.
we lit a candle.
this one’s for you milo.
thanks for stopping by…
thanks for all your kind words & thoughts.
laura (and sam too!)
Prowling his own quiet backyard or asleep by the fire,
still only a whisker away from the wilds.
