Nappy from Myrtle Beach

by Shirley Berry
(Myrtle Beach, South Carolina)

Nappy (took a lot of naps) was a beautiful Calico. My husband (who didn't know at the time what a cat lover he would become) saw her at the door and gave her a can of tuna.

She was back the next morning. We opened the door and she walked into our home and into our hearts, with both of us wrapped around her little white paw.

She loved to rest in the bathroom sink, which scared the daylights out of me the first time I saw her there.

When I had surgery and could not get comfortable in bed, I would head out to the recliner. As soon as I pulled up the blanket, Nappy was in my lap and we both had a good night's sleep.

Then she began to have kidney problems. For a year we administered water treatments. She didn't like the needle, but she knew we were trying to help her.

Finally, there was nothing more we could do for her. After eleven years of love, we took her to the vet (my husband had to pull to the side of the road to compose himself) to help her cross the Rainbow Bridge.

We have an oil painting of Nappy, two poems, and her ashes in Nappy's tribute corner. Several years have gone by and we still miss our little lady.

So sorry
by: Kathy

So very sorry. We have been there with several furry babies and it is so hard. I still miss them and hope to see them again. Heaven would not be complete without them!
