The Angels Are Always Near

I don’t mean for this to be a sad post. It is a post of remembrance.

Tomorrow (October 24) is the anniversary of our beloved HMC’s passing.


We recently got a bell jar to house gentlestitches wonderful anipal of HMC:


And while this is a sad anniversary, it also means that we will have had our two new beloved brothers for a year on October 29.

Anniversary4  Boba Fett

While they cannot fill HMC’s paws, they are cute little kitties in their own right. We are glad we chose them to have a forever home with us.

  1. Love to you on this sad anniversary. It is also a happy one because the boys have been with you for a year. All your quotes are wonderful and appropriate and remind me of my Oskar.

  2. A sad “anniversary”…..they always are….but Bo and Kobi really have come into their own and are two lucky guys to be living “the life” with you now. Love the bell jar for Gentle Stitches’ sweet little HMC knitted memorial.

  3. I went through this in 2011, when my beloved ginger cat Louie die unexpectedly. Whewn I picked up his ashes, I was offered the kitten (still a couple weeks before he could leave his mother) I came to call Andy.

    Within a month, I acquired his littermate and brother Dougy.

    Though I’ve come to love the little rascals, August 1st of each year is an annoiversary of Louie’s death, and I remember how that was….

    Anyway, Louie was a rescue cat I got when he was estimated to be five-years-old, and my only regret is I didn’t get top enjoy him as a kitten, the way I have his successors Andy and Dougy.

We look forward to your comments and meows!
