Kaci has been gone for 5 weeks and it's been very hard dealing with her loss. Today is a cold, grey and rainy day and my mood matches the weather. My sister needed me to pick her up, drive her to the doctor for minor surgery, then take her to the pharmacy and finally home again. She was in a lot of pain and not feeling well and I was happy to do it. But it's a nasty day with pouring rain and congested roads and very slow moving traffic. By the time I got home this afternoon, I was miserable . . .
that is, until I opened the envelope sent by Julia, momcat to Edgar, Salem, Lucy, Emily, Felicity & family.
I was surprised, delighted and very touched (to say the least!) to find a beautiful spiral bound condolence book -- "In Loving Memory of Kaci Sunshine . . . " with pages of condolences from many of our Catster friends. There are 3 beautiful pictures of Kaci too, decorated with paw prints outlined in glitter, shiny flowers, hearts and jewels -- very beautiful! There's one picture on the cover, another in the middle of the book and one on the last page. I'm going to see if I can scan the pictures onto my computer so I can put them on Kaci's profile but I'm afraid it won't do justice to the pictures. I cried and cried while reading your condolences. At the same time, though, it lightened my heart and mood and brightened up my day.
Thank you to momcat Dana, Big Harry & family for starting and organizing everything, everyone who sent their condolences and to momcat Julia for putting the book together. It's the best gift anyone could ever have given me and I'm very grateful to you and thank you from deep in my heart. It was an unexpected and very thoughtful and welcomed gift and I will treasure it forever.
Happy Thanksgiving Day to all our friends!
Kaci's mommy Teri

Mom says she is glad you got the card! (((Teri))) She hopes you noticed the little card that said these friends who signed the book card have gotten you some memorial gifts. Those may take a while to arrive. Kaci Sunshine was a precious girl and now she is watching over you.
Love & purrs,
Try to have a happy Thanksgiving, I know your heart most likely isn't in the holidays but maybe it will take your mind off of things for awhile. Glad you like the book!
We send our purrs and loving hugs, too.
You got your book at exactly the time that you needed it most, how lovely of Kaci to make sure it arrived today.
