Cream Burmese 16 y.o. (my last photo of him). He was a stray kitten who latched onto me and my other pets as though he had been born to care for all of us. He died in my arms. 280 views 09/01/13

    Kind thoughts to you, Christina, in your remembering your dear little friend. A very noble and sweet looking little man. It’s so sad that we have to lose our pets too soon. Bron

  • Thank you Bron. He was a very special cat and this was taken the day before he told me was ready to let go – he had a chronic illness but suddenly I knew the time had come. I am so grateful for his friendship and will never forget him.

    He was a beauty. I wanted to be with my little one when he died last Wednesday, but he died about an hour before I got home from work.

  • Dear Debbie – I have only just seen this! I am so sorry, especially because of what happened to you that day. I will look for your special cat this month and think of you.

    He’s beautiful. Great capture; love the lighting and how he’s looking at you. My heart’s with you. I just lost my cat 2 days ago.

  • I am so very sorry you have lost yours so recently. I really do feel for you. Orlando was the most special cat I have every known and our bond was extraordinary. I am often surprised at just how much I still miss him, but I do and I think I always will. Thank you for your lovely message. x
