Mary K. Robison September 22, 2014

Oh, Marijana, I didn't realize your loss of Maza was so painfully recent. I echo all the comments above, from people who have loved and lost a member of their family. The Rainbow Bridge has been a comfort in the past for Scott and me. If you close your eyes, you might see our Riley (Maza's twin, gone one year now) ~ he's giving Maza a tour, and telling her to visit you whenever you need her most. When you feel up to it, please post other photos of her. Such a gorgeous cat deserves to be seen on a regular basis. Prayers for you, my friend.
