Purring and Purring and Purring...

That is what we are doing over here. While everyday there are so many great, happy, adorable posts in the catblogosphere, it seems like lately there have been more sad ones that usual. We are purring for DK and her family over the loss of Joaqin, for Missy, KC, and ML for the loss of Bear, for Millie, her Mom, Jasmine, and Mr. Karate for the loss of sweet sweet Gizzy, and for Grr, Midnight, and Cocoa for the loss of their friend Cashmere. Many kitties have been sick, so we've been sending lots of purrs to Lilly Lu and Rocky as well. Then there are all the cats and dogs becoming sick with tainted food that we are purring for. And of course there was the terrible tragedy earlier this week in Virginia. Many of you have mentioned that at times like these, you are glad to be a cat. I couldn't agree more. Not only are our lives less stressful, but we can provide comfort with our purrs, and use our purrs to strengthen the prayers of our humans. Even though we don't always make it around to comment or attend the prayer vigils, we want you all to know that you are in our thoughts and prayers always.

I'll continue the moving story in a few days.

You know, I was just thinking today about how all at once, it seems like there is so much kitty sadness. I'm so sad about it all, too, and wish I could offer some comfort. I think it helps knowing that we're all here for each other.
You're very sweet to post this heartfelt entry.

So many things to purr for. Good thing we can all stick together to do it.
