Once upon a time ~ summer 2013 ~ Dee and her husband Pierre came into my life. It was a difficult time for me, a time of many changes. One change was needing a new home for little kitty Zoey and they welcomed her with love. As Zoey found her way and her place in her new home, she was also adopted by two brothers ... the handsome and gentle grey boy, TK ... and the energetic young one, Pip. The family lived in Maryland ... as I was moving from Florida to Maryland ... just as Zoey was making a new home with a new family, I, too was blessed to find new and treasured friends.
As I write today, I am a guest in their Florida home and have been enjoying not only the company of these dear friends ... but the antics of Pip and Zoey. Though on arriving here about ten days ago, I could easily see what Dee had spoken of ... that dear TK's health had declined in recent months ... and he had slowed down so much. Nearly age 20 ... this dear boy was no longer robust, age and illness now taking it's toll. Sadness, tears, heartache ... filled the soul. On Monday, a visit to the veterinarian confirmed what was known in the mind. Dee made the decision to let to, to help TK cross his bridge.
I am honored to have known, for brief times, this beautiful kitty boy!
He was special. Rest well, TK. Forever.
