On a Spring morning many years ago, when I was taking out the trash, I saw a tiny kitten with enormous paws in our front yard. I called to him, and he approached close enough for me to scoop him up.
When my husband Rick got home from work that night, I said, “Look what I found”.
Rick said, “I think that’s our kitten”.

And we lived happily ever after until last week.


We feel so fortunate that we found each other. I’m also grateful for your understanding and expressions of sympathy. They have been enormously comforting.

Thank you.

  1. What a darling little baby he was. I’m so glad you both had each other for so long, though it’s never long enough. Lots of hugs and purrs.

  2. Thank goodness you found each other!

    Great joy that little boy brought to so many of us!
    Thank you Tommie!
    Thank you Maggie for sharing that tabby boy.
    As I glance over and see your Lucky Cats Paper Dolls…
    Lucky Boy for sure & of course Lucky You.

  3. Aw he was such a tiny kitten with big paws. It’s really wonderful you found each other and shared happy life together. Sending lots of hugs and purrs to you.

  4. The sight of Tommie’s empty collar took the breath out of me. At the same time my eyes filled with tears and chills went through. Impossible to imagine he’s gone. Loving so much gives enormously, and the cost, when the bill comes due, is great.
