10/04/2017 – Thank You

From the very center of our being, we thank you all for your kind words, your thoughts and prayers, your cards and graphics, your perfect poems and quotes, your hugs, gentle headbonks and woooos and comforting purrs, and for your love and understanding. Thank you for stopping by and reading our words, written when our hearts were raw and broken over Zuzu’s very, very sudden illness, diagnosis, and passing. We are healing because of your kindness. Thank you.

Please hug your kitties. In Zuzu’s memory, hug them as soon as you can. She’d like that.
