Mama... you were the most perfect cat. I don't know if I'll ever understand why you had to leave us the way you did. All I know is that it must have been your time. You had some other world to shine your light on. We are so glad that we were able to share our home with you and your babies. I couldn't imagine life right now without the joy you brought us and continue to bring us through your little troublemakers. We have so many memories to look back on, from the day we first met and took you in, to the familiar string of "mows" we would exchange every day. I miss you terribly. Just terribly. I hope you are happy and warm, waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge. Until we meet again, Mama.... your memory will live in my heart forever.
