What a beautiful kitty and what a sweet and gentle face! A stray kitty who lived to be 13-15 years old...you made that possible for him. Tiger must have been telling you how much he appreciated your taking him in and also how much he loved you by allowing you to open your heart to Chino and Echo, and then to Shadow.
I don't know how you've coped over the past year Judy. As much as I covet Chino and Shadow, if anyone deserved such special kitties, you do.
I can't believe it's been 3 years since we lost our sweet boy. I still miss him so much and I think about him every day. My husband keeps a photo of Tiger on his desk at work. He was such an important part of our lives.
Memories don't just go away, do they. I have a picture on my desk too... and it's been *years*. And still sometimes the tears come when I see that picture and remember my sweet furry boy. So, you have company in Memory Lane. Sympathy to you at this painful time.
