Thanks, I appreciate all the kind words. The twins turned 12 years old on June 15th. I was blessed with having Cali around for much longer than I thought (and the vets thought) when the tumors were first discovered.


She was a special little girl. But everyone's pets are special and very, very loved.



Her Petfinder picture that made me fall in love with her:







The day I met them











The twins' first day home. Never say "Bite me!" to your sister. (there was no actual contact, just a great angle)

The vet called, Cali's ashes were ready for pickup. Wow. Why does that phone call tear into your heart so much? I was expecting the usual wooden box, but this is what I received. There was a label with her name and date on it, but I really didn't want to look at that every day, so I took it off. There was also a handwritten note from the cremation company saying that she was treated with the utmost respect and care, etc. The top of my antique desk was one of her favorite places, but her last few months, she couldn't jump up there. She would just sit on the floor and stare at it. She would love that she was up there now.

Iím glad she is back home with you. Take care.

Don't be to critical of a mistake. It is evidence that at least
someone tried to do something.

What a perfect idea, in her favorite spot. That call was hard, it tugs hard on your heart when it's still tender.

I am so so sorry! I had a Callie once. She was a kitten and was all black (but I think she was going to have orange spots) with an orange face and a half a black mustache and a black goatee. She WAS SO SPECIAL.

Goodbye, sweet Cali. No other cat will be quite like her, but you had a good time together.
