a beautiful life

a brave little fighter who fought the good fight...

over and over and over again

she stole our hearts twelve years ago - the only little girl cat we've ever had
a tiny little green-eyed feline with dainty white feet

we all tried so hard, marc, doug, claire,  the vet... this time, the third time, was not the charm


more than any other cat we've had, josie knew how to sleep the best



feet straight out in front


a princess at rest




we miss you girly-girl

 thank you to everyone for your suggestions, well wishes and wonderful thoughts... they were all so very much appreciated...

That is sad news about your lovely Josie. The house will feel so empty without her, but I know she had a wonderful, love-filled life with you and yours. Hugs

When a furball comes into your life, it is a very special experience. They are soft, warm, and cuddly. They bring joy, love, and sometimes many surprises. It is so easy for them to win a piece of your heart, and when they have to leave you, they take a piece of your heart with them. But deep down inside you know that what they brought into your life, will always remain in your heart and mind, forever.
I am so sorry for your loss. I know how difficult it is to bear their loss, from your life.
