Image Good Night, Cupcake
By Sharon Brown on July 12, 2010

Cupcake was a garden kitty. In the heat of summer days, she slept in the shade of my daylilies, and on cooler days, she sunned herself on top of my brick arches. Cupcake was a stray, and she really belonged to no one, but I belonged to her.

I read this story this morning, but couldn't see thru tears to comment till now. I think your kitten came into your life just when you needed her to.....and she moved on after her job was done, and she knew you were going to be fine!

Thanks Bubbles, you might be right.
I'm just not sure how fine I'm going to be, though.

Thank you, Renee.

During the night last Tuesday, Renee.

It's been a rough week.

Oh, my, I was thinking it might be a story from your past, even though you said Tuesday... ((((((Sharon)))))) I am so sorry!
Any idea what caused her untimely demise?

I too thought this was a story from the past. Had I realized this happenend so recently, I would have known better than to offer such "wisdom." I know the pain of losing a pet. I'm so sorry, Sharon...

That's OK....I wrote the story to help ease my hurt. Sometimes writing does that for me.

I'm not sure what happened. My guess would be heartworms or maybe diabetes. It sneaked upon me too quickly to realize how bad it was.

Your words of wisdom are much appreciated, Bubbles....

Thank you.
