Carrying on . . .

January 2012 has NOT been a good month.

On January 24th we had to say goodbye to one of our special family members.

Mysty-Quilt2

Mysty was a little stray that came into our lives over 20 years ago on a very cold December night . . . so very tiny that she fit into the palm of my hand.

She wrapped herself around our hearts and into every part of our lives - our house is so very quiet without her.

We miss you, Mysty.

Marlene, I am so sorry to hear about Mysty - when our furry friends leave us, they also leave a big hole in our lives. I bet Mysty is on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge being a frisky kitten again. Sending you a hug.

So sorry to hear about your beloved cat Mysty. She is now at the Rainbow bridge with my beloved Bubbles. I am glad you got a long 20 years, that is what I envisioned I would have with mine, but only got 6. It has been 4 years now and I am just now starting to look for another cat or two. {{{HUGS}}}}}

Came by your blog via Community Quilts via Needle and Thread Network -- amazing what you find by following links! So sad to hear your Mysty has traveled the rainbow bridge as they say... A big hug for you and maybe a kitten in your future...

I know it's hard to concentrate on how much her life improved after having come into your life. Think how much you helped her. I'm tearing up, so sorry!

Un abrazo.
