LIL' BIDDY DIED TODAY
Nearly 4 years after being diagnosed with kidney failure.
For me - every day with her has been a joy.
Just yesterday she kissed my nose and purred
Galloped down the hall chasing a string
SO FULL OF LIFE!
But even with the best care and endless love
Her little body finally gave up
We found her at a shelter on a Christmas Eve - the tiniest wee kitten
tilting her head fetchingly
looking hopefully up at us with big blue eyes
purring when we held her.
She was a shy kitten - scared really - she'd been
sickly and isolated
for months in the shelter.
Little by little she began to trust -
Her soft warm body curled on your lap -
Or followed you all around the house,
weaving twixt your legs - teasing, looking up,
fluffy grey tail always held high!
EVERY DAY SHE TOOK A NAP ON "PINKIE"
her handwoven blankee.
She was always so tiny
Her fur - the silkiest, softest, whitest in the world . . .
She was always kittenish - charming
She meditated daily - in California
and in the Great Pacific Northwest
She loved her big orange pal Rafferty
Her little soul was attuned to mine
It was so hard to say goodbye ~
The house seems empty without her
HER SPIRIT WAS SO JOYFUL
I WILL SO MISS
HER SWEET PRESENCE
