Here's a Poppet® Sketch commission that I am sending off tomorrow. What cute sisters! One's an illustrator and the other a photographer, hence the camera and the sketchbook.
Then this afternoon I took Mabel to the vet, just for a yearly check up (thank goodness!). Maggie's cremains had come in, so I took those home with me along with her empty carrier when I left. That was so depressing.
Bringing out her carrier without her in it somehow made it really hit home that she is not coming back. I still can't believe it. So tonight we said our goodbyes to her. Paul and I wrote good bye letters in sharpie on the outside of her cremain box and pasted on a photo of her, not very pretty but heartfelt.
She's going to be buried at the Best Friend's Ranch in Utah, along with our other cat Melvis who was buried there last year. It might sound weird that we are sending her all the way to Utah, but we feel connected to Best Friends because of the amazing work that they do to help animals. So it feels right to have her buried there.....needless to say it was a very teary evening.
Hug your fur-babies everyone!
Is always with you, I think you know that..
You are a great fur mom, think of what a wonderful life she had with you..
Hang on to those moments and keep them in your heart forever..

I'm sorry to hear about your cat. we had to put our 12 year old dog to sleep recently after a horrible long illness and even though it was so obviously time to do it, it was awful
Oh, and I'm honored that Mandi and I made it onto your blog! The Poppet sketch turned out great! I love it and can't wait to give it to her!
