Snowflake

Today my sweet "Snowflake" would have been 15 yrs old.
She was a feral kitten when I got her
and pretty much stayed that way.
She was always afraid of everything and everyone.
She loved it when Pony Girl came to visit.
She would come and sleep on the edge of my bed at night.
She wouldn't leave me alone.
That was the only time I could try to sneak some kisses
and pet her.
All I wanted to do was love her.
But I couldn't change who she was,
I loved her no matter what.
I miss you Snowflake, baby Snowflake, my Snowy Girl.

It is a wise woman who loves someone or something just the way it IS...I bet your snowflake appreciated that.

Thank you for all your kind thoughts. I actually lost her 1 1/2yrs ago to stomach cancer. I still think about her a lot and miss her terribly.

I miss 'noflake, too! :( She was so sweet, my special buddy. I think she lived a happy life, it was better than if she'd grown up wild in the woods behind your old workplace, that's for sure!! xoxo

Hard to believe she would have been 15 yrs old. She was such a pretty cat. It is always so hard to lose a precious pet. Thinking of you!

I feel your pain...Little Oliver had a bad weekend and had to spend it in the hospital. besides his brain tumor and his radiated thyroid...he has had a heart condition that went into heart failure this week end. However, my little energizer bunny came home on Sunday and has improved to almost where he was before the "incident"! At 18 3/4 years young...the vet said he is over 100 in human years, everyday with him is our gift!
Snowball was dearly loved!

What a lovely tribute. Whenever our beloved friends pass on it leaves an emptiness. I still miss all my babies.
