Pepper - In Loving Memory

When I got up this morning and checked my email as regularly I saw a message from Kristina (Mike's sister) telling me that her cat Pepper passed away. Poor kitty. :( 

Pepper was about 15 and lived a long healthy life but it's still so sad to see him go. Especially after just losing Monie in June. :(

Kristina said that when she got home from work yesterday he was breathing hard & shallow and was in respiratory distress.  She took him to the vet right away but there wasn't anything they could do. They gave him a sedative before the injection so he died peacefully in Kristina's arms. Poor baby. :( Makes me want to cry. I hope he is happy wherever he is. 

i shall walk in the sun alone
whose golden light you loved;
i shall sleep alone
and, stirring, touch an empty place:
i shall read uninterrupted
(would that your gentle paw

could stay my book just once again!)

Pepper2_1 i shall see beauty
but none to match your living grace;
i shall hear music
but not as sweet as the droning song
with which you loved me.>br> i shall fill my days
but i shall not, cannot forget:
sleep soft, dear friend,
for while i live you shall not die.

(this poem is a little altered from the original by Michael Joseph) .

it's always sad to lose a pet - especially the old ones who have become such a part of the family.
