I have been ill for awhile with a cancer tumor in my mouth. The vet said there was no cure, but it would not be painful and as long as I could eat and drink I would be able to deal with it. It did get quite large but I have always been a trooper and I kept on gobbling up my food. Mom and I treasured every day we had. We knew 21 would be the last birthday but how many cats get to live that long...really. Not so many. I was born in my Moms studio 21 years ago and she picked me up right away and said"marybeth, you have come, i am so happy you have finally come". She always called me her little tiny kitten and told me I had to stay with her and take care of her so i always did that. When I realized I was very sick I was so worried....i knew I had to leave. Mom kept telling me it was OK to leave and go to the bridge with my dog sibs. Jasper went in July this year and Cassie just a few weeks ago so my Mom and Dad have been through a lot.I really did not want to go and leave them. Finally Mom told me I could always be her every special guardian angel, forever. I could fly on my beautiful wings and watch over her wherever she goes. So, after days of kisses and pets and tears I slipped away in my sleep. I left my parents feeling peaceful...grateful we had so many wonderful years. Now I can fly free and keep tabs on them and watch over all my family...even Simon. I see you and Jacquelyn fighting over my basket by Mom's computer...you take turns now...gentle purrs, Marybeth
