As we were putting my cat down a few days ago, the vet pet him with us and said that he was chasing butterflies now... that part in the poem choked me up so much. It is a beautiful poem and helped remind me why we love these beautiful creatures, and how they are so worth all the emotions we feel for them. I have been reminded several times that one day I won't feel so much pain but be able to just smile at the memories. I am comforted by this.

I frequently read this poem, inserting Mocha's name, colouring, and names of other pets lost.....I still cry every time and my Mochie-cat passed a month ago. But the story is so true. I am hoping to print out my "Mocha" version to put in her RIP Memorial photo book when my heart heals a bit more.

...Always in my heart... Mocha....Nov. 13, 2002 - Dec. 6, 2013
.... Slave to Bengal Cats....Luna, Mystik, Simba, Komet, Meli,
Spark
, and Star
.....and a collection of kittens at various times.
