Subject: RE: BS: Cat Trees Bear!
Sorry to hear about your cat, Nessie! So sad! My 14-year-old son had a friend over to spend the night this week. In the morning at one point I found the friend sitting in the hall next to a box where one of my cats was rolling and enjoying being scratched. The boy had quiet tears running down his face, and I remembered his mother saying that their oldest cat, 21-years, hadn't come back when they returned from a week out of town last week. Their other two had, but this one probably died. I realized that he had known that old cat all of his life, so of course losing was a much harder loss than for an adult who has gone through it with a few pets. I think my cat was channeling his good wishes to his cat, so I gave him a hug and left him to commune with the kitties.
