Won-Ton says: "First I was in a house. A dog scratched my eye. A strange cat came and scared me away. I lived under some bushes for a while. Nice people petted me and fed me and then took me inside their house. And here I am."

A Message From Won-Ton's Mom

Won-Ton passed away peacefully at home yesterday afternoon. She had increasingly uncontrollable hyperthyroidism, epilepsy, kidney disease and arthritis. She was -- is -- a beautiful soul and a gentle spirit, and always will be.

She began refusing food 6 days ago and had 2 grand mal seizures earlier in the day. We were able to find a mobile vet who could do an in-home euthanasia in the early afternoon. It was the right thing to do, and the right time to do it.

Rest in peace, Won-Ton. Thank you for our time together. You will always have a place in my heart.


Everything Glimmers

I hear a snap. And my brain sparkles. It hurts.

And then it doesn't hurt. And the sparkles gently fade.

But now I understand the glimmering water. I know why it glimmers. I know how to grab it and not let it go.

I see everything with new eyes now.

I am becoming one with the great water.

Everything glimmers.


The Water Glimmers

The water glimmers. It gleams in such a way that I am moved to grab it. I dig at it. My paws are drenched, empty. It eludes me. And still it glimmers.
