The Cat Who Died (But then she didn't)

To lose a friend.

To Boots.
The greatest cat in the world.

I love you, Boots and cry for you like I would cry for a human being.
I know it is silly but I still love you dearly.

I've asked my husband to bury you near where our new house will stand
so that I can visit you and pay tribute to the unselfish love you gave to me.

you have helped my son and I and our whole family through some tough times.
With a sixth sense knowing who was sick or who was hurting… you always picked the person who most needed you to sleep with and snuggle up next to you.

How did you know?

How did you know when I had a horrible day and felt like the world was coming to an end? How did you know when I felt like a failure because I had a messy house?
How did you know when I needed to slow down and be still?

She didn't die. She lived. But the truth is, we feel about pets often like we feel about humans. They are dear to us.
