Rusty from Richmond
by Linda Sindeldecker
Rusty was a beautiful, orange 6-toed cat. He normally weighed about 20 pounds. He was a big boy. He was a gentle giant.
He found a baby robin one day that had fallen out of the tree. He brought it to me in his mouth. He dropped it and the bird was completely unharmed. I realized how gentle he was.
He loved to be in the garden with me, digging holes, just being outside.
His love for both my husband and I is missed so badly it hurts to talk about it even after 3 years.
I love you, Rusty, and Lucy will be with you - but not too soon. I can't tolerate losing you both right now. Wait for me and Dad at the bridge.
Love you, baby, love you forever.
