SWEET TRAVELS DEAR MAVIS
Last week we had to say farewell to our old friend Mavis. She was a cantankerous kitty that 8 years ago scratched me more times then I can remember but wound up in her later years, perched on my chest at night like a baby about to be burped, rising and falling with the gentle wave of my breathing. She fell in love with me and I of her. She was my wife Elizabeth's cat that she rescued 10 years ago - she was 3 pounds when she brought her home.
To this date, saying good by to this little cat on the towel in a veterinarian's office has been one of the hardest things I have had to do, but we have great memories of her. We sang silly songs about her and we still do. We love you Mavis - sweet travels wherever you are....
