Loving Oliver

I haven't been around the blog world lately because it has been a rough couple of weeks. We lost Oliver, our beloved tabby, on April 13th. He was suffering from several congenital defects that finally caught up with him at the young age of 4. (we were unaware of them until a few days before his death.) We still have our other lovely cat, Amelia, but Oliver was always the life of the party. Naughty would be an understatement, loving would be too mild a term. I guess maybe he knew he was unhealthy and lived life to the very fullest with what he had been given. He was a beautiful cat, a wonderful friend to my husband and I and we miss him so very much.

Losing a pet is so hard! My condolences.

On another note, I stumbled upon your blog earlier this week and I am really enjoying it. Keep up the good work!

I am so very sorry for your loss. It must be especially hard with him being so young. My dog is getting up in years and every day I see him slow down. I fear the day he eventually passes on. :( I hope the photos and memories bring your heart joy for years to come.
