Thank You.





 Levon, " Hey Leo. Is that you?!"




















 Levon, "I think that really was him . . . that little colourful prism of light by my left paw. Did you see him? "












Thank you for the kind , thoughtful ,  generous and heartfelt comments on Leo's post. They meant a lot to me and have lifted me through the sadder moments of loss. I wanted to share a quote with you that our cat sitter's vet wrote to us in a card she sent after learning Leo was no longer with us. Emma , our cat sitter , felt more comfortable taking Leo to her vet during my absence and I was in agreement with her. Her vet sent us a sympathy card and wrote , " I met Leo once , but was struck by his gentle, gracious nature. He was a lovely, lovely gentleman of a cat." It pleased me that she saw him that clearly even close to the end of his life. He was truly special... and he will be forever missed. We will be visiting efurryone slowly but surely as the week progresses. We hope you are all well.







Have a Marvelous Monday.
See you soon.

  4. Big HUGS for mom. We miss Leo too. How very kind of that vet to send you a car when you aren't usually even a patient there. That says bunches about the kind of place that is.

  6. Levon, we agree. Mom says that prism of light definitely was Leo come to comfort you and let you know he is watching over you. We are all sending our purrs and love as you continue to heal and discover a way of life that does not include Leo's physical presence. Just remember, he will always be in your hearts. Love to you all and Mom Sophie as well. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo and our mom, Janet

  14. You have been in our thoughts. Leo must have been a truly special kitty for someone to pick up on those traits of his after just one meeting. Levon, we do think that prism of light was Leo - he will always be with you. Sending you all lots of love
