Today's post is a sentimental journey for me. I made this card several years ago for our beloved cat, Mozart. We sadly witnessed our "big boy" battle a host of health issues and dwindle to 5 pounds over the last few months. He passed away yesterday.
He has been a loyal and dear friend (a best buddy to our pug, Isabel) since we got him eleven years ago from the humane society. At the time, he was an "unwanted" stray, approx. 7 years old who immediately needed 9 teeth pulled. His paperwork indicated he only had 1 day left before being euthanized. My family, who had been looking for a cat for several months, selected him over a huge litter of kittens. We felt there was something special about him from our first introduction.
They say that animals who get a second chance make extraordinary pets and he was no exception. What a gift he was to the Fish family. I'm so glad we could spoil him in return. Mozart died in dignity and surrounded by love. I'm going to miss his undeniable sweetness and the sound of his little bell.
