    Thanks Eileen,
    i wouldn't put it into YouTube because i would be reminded every time i went into that account,..when Ginger was dying he gave me one look over his shoulder and let a faint meow,..looked me right in the eye and died,..it hit me to the core.

    Here is my precious Ms. KatieMay. She was a Shih Tzu mix. I rescued her from a kill shelter back in 1996 and she shared my life and home with me till February of 2010 when she went to Rainbow Bridge to wait for me. I still think of her and miss her so very much everyday. Now I have Danny-Boy and Bonnie-Lass to keep me VERY busy. It's funny how they all have very much different personalities but yet still have some commonalities as well isn't it?

    What a wonderful tribute to both Gingers! Great pictures. You do know how to capture a moment that's for sure.

    So sorry to hear your news Philip. I hope Clara didn't suffer and that she's now at peace and reunited with her kittens.

    Sorry to hear of Clara passing away, I know it is extremely hard to loose pets that have given us so much joy. They leave us with cherished moments, funny happenings and the purring of contentment. Those are what we can best remember when they no longer with us.

    I'm sorry about Clara -- she was a beautiful cat and you seem to have had a real soft spot for her... it is so hard to lose our furry friends... rest peacefully Clara...

    Thanks folks,
    its always very hard to bear!,..even though i have quite a few cats and kittens some outshine the others with personality,..and Clara was sort of special,..i was sure i was going to build up a firewall and not be upset,..it didn't work!,..thank you all for the kind words.
