Goodby to Snowball

Our little old lady cat, Snowball, died last Tuesday. We had her for almost 18 years. She really wanted to be an "only cat" but she learned to share her home with our other little guys, Ozzie and Pippi...they were there, what can you do? Most of all, however, she really loved us. A lap was the best thing, and tucking her head into the crook of your arm while on the lap was heaven.

We buried her by the new orange tree and left pink and orange candles burning thru the night. If we had roses in bloom we would have had petals strewn on the ground.
