So long Posum

She has been having seizures for the last four or five months and started shutting down this last week. We took her in this morning.

RIP pretty cat! Your are a beauty - I said: you are, because your spirit is going to stay, we just don't see you - and you will be back - maybe in another coat, but Don and Mussy will know

I'm so sorry; even as my throat tightened at your words, her picture made me smile. She was beautiful.

Such beautiful coloring Don. Yes, they all touch you in certain ways. She even looks special. She's one who you can see her personality just by looking at her. I feel for you guys. Been there too many times. Sorry for your pain.

Steve, 23yrs. Wow, must have been very rough but such a great long time.

Beatiful creature. I also believe she will be close-by always. I sometimes see my beloved tabby Kitty Ko Chan at the corner of my eye when I am working in the g'houses. My other cat sees her as well. He went once to investigate and was quite puzzled she just was not there anymore.

She looked quite at home amid the lace and glassware and fancies. I suspect she tred amidst them quite carefully. I'm sorry.

It is so hard to say goodbye to a loving pet. Posum was a beautiful girl. I'm sure her spirit will live on for you and Missy. Our precious Persian Bre allowed us to share her house for 21 years - I still miss her.

I'm sorry for your loss, Don. Cats have a way of becoming so entwined with our lives, and imprinted on our hearts. It's hard to say goodbye. She was a beautiful creature, and seems to have been aptly named. :o)

Don and Missy I am so sorry that you had to say goodbye to
another member of your family.
Beautiful photograph, Missy, you've captured her soul.

I think about you often. You are special.
