What a beautiful photo of your cat--and how she resembles my own down to her very last strand of fur. Like your beloved Una, our "Tiger" was given us by a close friend who had discovered the abandoned kitten living in the bitter November cold beneath a battered cardboard box four years ago. Seems the kitten had been left to live or die on a nearby construction site by someone very heartless.Jason Pipes wrote:Sadly my beloved cat Una passed away earlier this week after a very serious surgery over the weekend. She has been in my family for 12 years. We rescued her from a shelter when she was 3 months old. She was a beautiful, gentle, reserved cat with a deep personality. She wasn't a lap cat but she would tell you when she wanted or needed affection. In her last week on earth she was the most sweet and special cat I've ever known. She spent hours on end letting us pet and care for her in an attempt to comfort her. It really was amazing.
I was very close to Una and she was a very special part of my family. Since she has been gone there has been a noticeable and distinct void where she once was. We miss her dearly. I can honestly say that I'm grieving for her loss and filled with sorrow that she's gone.
I mention this mainly to let others know why I've been slow to respond or to update the weekly research contest, etc. I hope to be back in the swing of things in a short while. These things take time to heal even though I know I will never stop missing her and being sad for her loss.
Beloved Una, November 1995 - February 2008
