If there are garter snakes in heaven…

Let this be their warning: BobMorgan (AKA Yellow Boy), my sweet boy, constant companion, feline clown, and bug hunter extraordinaire, is on his way to get you!!

There were few things that Yellow Boy loved more than a good garter snake chase!

Safe journey, sweet boy, and may your snake chases and bug hunts be happy and endless.

MacKenzie and I will miss you always.

I weave, knit and read in Aurora, Colorado where my garden lives. I have 2 sons, a knitting daughter-in-law, a grandson and two exceptionally spoiled kittens. In 2014 I was diagnosed with a serious rare autoimmune disease called systemic sclerosis along with Sjogren's Disease and fibromyalgia.

      1. Oh sweetie I completely understand. We had a sweet little girl for only 6 years and she ended up with cancer. It was horrible to watch as I tried to keep her alive when the poor girl was ready to go. Our first cat we have had for 13 years now and she is doing well. Our second cat we have had for about 2 years. I LOVE them both and the one that passed is still with us in spirit. It is amazing how much of a hold they get on our lives. I am so sorry for your loss and wish you comfort during this painful time.

      2. Thank you so much for sharing. He was in kidney failure, the second time I’ve done this. My previous cat I kept going with desperate attempts to prolong his life for months. This time, when my boy slipped into complete kidney failure, I decided to let him go rather than prolong his suffering. I know I did the best thing, but it still hurts.

  1. Oh, I am so sorry. I know you did what was best but that doesn’t keep the sadness at bay. Reading the part about MacKenzie going through the house looking for him though brought tears to my eyes….😒😒

    1. MacKenzie searched the house this morning again, and it brought tears to my eyes too. I’m spending more time with MacKenzie now and we even went outside to let him play for a while yesterday evening. We’ll get through this, but it will take a while. πŸ™‚

  2. Oh, Marilyn – oh, noo. I’m sorrier than I know how to say. I’ll be holding you and MacKenzie and your amazing Yellow Boy in my heart.

    1. Thank you. We really are having a sad time Yellow Boy was really MacKenzie’s pet, and he has been searching endlessly for him. 😦 The vet told me go get him a kitten right away, but Mac is almost 15 and I wonder if that would be too much for him. We are in transition for sure.

      1. I’m so sorry. My heart hurts for you and for MacKenzie. Sending so much good energy your way.
