Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

I did not realize it at the time, but this is the last picture that I took of Arwen. She was one of the prettiest of my cat family. I lost her on March 19 of this year. I miss her, but keep foremost in my mind all of the love, loud purrs and good memories of the years we shared.

  • Thank you so much for the feature. Arwen and I appreciate it.. You are so right. To have loved her and then lost her is so much better than to have never loved her at all. She was a wonderful feline friend. I will cherish her always.

    She is beautiful. I am so sorry you lost her Chris:( it’s a pain unlike any other pain in the world. I can tell she was well loved♥

  • Thank you Heather. This year was a tragic year for my cat family. In the first three months I lost three (Cici, Tiger Toby and Arwen). We both know how wonderful it is to share lives with our feline friends. It hurts a lot to lose them, but I have learned that pain is a small price for all the years of shared love. Please give Isis some petting and love for me.
