It has been about two and a half months since I came to the Rainbow Bridge, and this week for the first time Mama felt able to work on photos of me. She enlarged 5 of her favorites, and had 2 mounted and laminated while framing the other 3. Two of them are almost life-size. Of course, life-size me was not that big anyway!
Mama has been wanting to make a Shutterfly book about me, and working on these pictures was sort of the first step, but getting even the first 5 photos cropped and edited just right made her sadder than she thought it would after the time that has passed. It might be awhile longer before she can weed through all my pictures and write down my rescue story to accompany the best of them. I'll be watching over her as she does it, and not let her work on it more than is good for her. A little bit is wonderful purrapy, but she needs to focus on all of my earth family more than on me. I am fine, and I don't need all that attention any more, and it is good to see her doing some other things now instead of having to keep up with my medical schedule all the time.
I sent her a little stray boy to keep her busy, and some of you have been keeping track of him on the Book-facey thing. He is a cutie, and he is getting friendlier every day. I keep urging him to go sniff Mama's hand and let her scritch him, but he's not quite brave enough yet. One of these days! I know he wants to!
Mama also wants to make some big portrait pictures of all my other siblings, so that she doesn't just have a Taffy Memorial Wall in her office - it will be all of us, her angels and earthlings alike, with our treasures. I think it will look very pretty.
Love and angel kisses,
We Angels are so happy to be so fondly remembered by our Humans. Being Turkish Vans, the comedian of kitties, makes us very special. We always leave a smile on our Humans faces. Greatly missed and dearly loved forever. My Humans are making my tribute too. Girl Human just got a 20X30 col-age made to put in the house that is being dedicated to me. We are so very lucky to have had Humans so caring. I wish that for all the kitties of the world. Your Forever Angel furrrend, Scarlet of Calico Junction Sanctuary in Virginia.
It can be a long time 'til your mom is able to handle all the emotion of going through pictures and writing. It ebbs and flows, ebbs and flows. I'll be with you watching over her heart.
