we'll love you forever, nade-kitten.


sometimes life is made up of heartbreaking moments.  last night was filled with those very moments as we said goodbye to our beloved family kitty, marshmallow.  for the past 18 1/2 years, marshmallow (better known to my family members as nade) was our "mini polar bear" and was always such a sweet and gentle kitty.  i know that 18 1/2 years is certainly a long time in kitty years, but no amount of time ever feels like long enough.  our hearts are broken, and we are sad to see him leave us for kitty heaven.

i have heard it said that you never really own cats because cats are the true owners since they own your heart.  boy is that true.  nade stole our hearts from the very first day that we brought him home, and we will fondly remember all of the joy that he brought to our family for so many years.

at times like these, i am grateful to have such a loving and supportive family.  we look forward to reuniting again with our precious bundle of fur one day.  until then, we will miss him dearly.

love, laurie

We am SO sorry to hear that you have lost Nade. When we saw him a few weeks ago I was afraid that this day was coming, and we were glad that we were finally able to pet him and give him some love. He always stayed away from us before. We are thinking of you at this time because we know how heartbreaking it is to lose a pet.
Love,
Dad and Mom

Thanks Laurie for such a wonderful tribute to Nade polar bear. I can't believe that 18 1/2 years went that fast. It sure will be lonely at home without a fuzzy one by our side. At least he was welcomed by Sunny, Rue,and Jeffrey and he is not sick anymore.
