And God asked the feline spiritThis morning I held our beloved Otto as he passed away. He's been in our lives for 13 years and will remain in our hearts forever.
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.
Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.
But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.
Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.
There is no way to describe how amazing this cat was... he was full of love right up until he left us. Our lives will not be the same without his gentle way. We're worried about his brother (pictured above, Wojo.) They've never been apart. But thankfully, Otto died at home, and Wojo got to see him and hopefully that will bring him peace.
I miss my puff kitty terribly....
