1991 - March 2009
My dear friends and family,
My dear, sweet, beautiful cat, Rain died tonight. She was
seventeen years old. I adopted her when she was approximately
seven months old.
She lived a great life with very little health problems. For
the past few months her health and quality of life had been
rapidly declining. I told her it was okay to go and that I
would be fine. We had lived a great seventeen years together.
Tonight she passed away lying in the bed between my husband
and I. If there was one person Rain loved more than me it
was my husband. I cannot tell you how much she adored him.
I am so thankful for her long, healthy, loving existence in
my life. She was a gentle soul and I can’t begin to
tell you how many times her cute little meow or her little
kisses (she loved to give them and get them) comforted me
and gave me joy. She will be missed more than I can even imagine
at this moment.
In memory of Rain, aka Raindrops, aka my Rainy Day Girl -
May the road rise up to meet you, may the wind be ever at
your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face and the rain
fall softly on your fields. And until we meet again, May God
hold you in the hollow of his hand.
- Melanie and Chester
