Happy Feline New Year 2014

2014 new year cats

Thank-you so much for the kind words, prayers messages, emails of condolence for our dear Gris Gris and me. It’s not easy to grieve during a time of celebration and I wanted to honor his memory with a special photo of him. Gris Gris arrived at our home as a scrawny, fearful and unsocialized, 12-year-old foster three years ago who avoided looking anyone in the eye. This photo was the first time he felt confident enough to look at me directly as if to say, thanks and might this be my forever home?

2014 new year

None of us know what tomorrow will bring but 2013 is ending and a new year is arriving. May your new year be full of peace, love and lots of purrs. Thank- you for being here and for loving cats!

  6. It’s a lovely photo, and I’ll remember the many photos of him that came after stretching his long legs all over the couch while napping with his fur brothers. He was very happy, as were his fur brothers, and you were too. That’s a sweet memory. Happy Mew Year.

  13. That one look speaks a thousand words and shows the beauty of his soul. Gris Gris knew peace at last when he found you and your family. He passed over the bridge surrounded by love and the comfort that it gives. We may only be given one day or one hour or many many years but we must always strive to make it the most wonderful, blessed time that we have together. You did that for Angel Gris Gris. We mourn with you.
