Not A Day Goes By That I Don't Miss My Kitty,
"Lucky Boy Swan"...
He loved to hang out in the garden with me.
Spring Is Here Now, And Another Season Begins Without Him.
He Loved Smelling All of My Plants and Flowers and Tools
And Following Me All Around Insisting On
KNOWING EXACTLY WHAT I WAS DOING.

Here's to YOU, Boy. I miss you so much. xo

He'll be looking over your shoulder again this spring, but just from a different vantage point. So sweet, Laura!

Wonderful tribute to your beloved Boy, Pom. Makes me want to wake Riley up and give him at least ten huge hugs!

I lost both my cats in the past year. Both were 18 so they did well but miss them.
I love cosmos. A lovely floral.

Lucky Boy was surely fortunate to be your Boy! He must have been a very happy cat! The Cosmos are beautifully photographed with just the might amounts of color, detail, light, and blur.

He was so sweet! I know how you miss him. I miss my Brittany(Boston Terrier). She has been gone 3 years this month. She passed when the tulip magnolias started blooming. A wonderful image Laura!

Hi Laura, So So sorry to hear about "Lucky Boy Swan". I know just how you feel and I want to thank you so much for your words regarding my dear Kemah. They made me come to tears just as I have now sharing your recent loss. I know they are both frolicking over the RAINBOW BRIDGE together and along with Koby, Chris E. recent loss. As alway thinking of you in your time of sorrow.

We BPpers are all so sensitive and loving. It's why we cry for each other and for ourselves and for the fact that our precious little friends are gone from this earth forever...Their lives are so short. It doesn't seem fair...

However, God is perfect and he knew best when he handed out each thing it's allotted life span. So, we must accept it and be grateful for the time we had with them, the lessons about life that they taught us and the joy, (along with the sorrow), that loving them has brought to us.

We know the old saying. "It is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all."

I have prayed that there really is a rainbow bridge. It surely does give our human hearts peace and something to look forward to. If anyone deserves a Heaven it would be our pets.

Thank you all for every word here. You'd have gotten a real kick out of "Lucky". He was so jealous, and protective, extremely well behaved as far as all the human rules went. He understood things. Many things. He was as smart as any dog I ever knew! He even did tricks. (when he felt like it!) He had a purr that was so strong it would shake your chest if he laid across it. I could almost feel his purr healing my own heart after I lost my Dad,(or just needed a friend). Amazing the love that cat had in him and I pray it was a reflection of my love for him. We were "his" and he was "ours"...and I am so sorry for each of you that know the pain of this kind of loss.

xo-Laura

Our kitties are very special to us, and I believe they are put with us at the very time we need them for they radiate love, and remind us everything will be as it is meant to be.

A wonderful photo tribute, Laura.
