A beautiful tribute. Oh if we could only love each other unconditionally and with the forgiveness with which our pets love us.

Both of these are sweet little pieces that illustrate how much we love and mourn the passing of beloved pets. I know our cats are part of the family, and I worry and fret if one stays outside for the night. ((Hugs)) ~Jan

Thanks, Janet. We have so many cats, but it doesn't matter. Each one is special. I've done a lot of crying in the past. Love, daver
