Two and a half hours ago, I awoke in the middle of the night. For no apparent reason. I told my husband that I was unusually wide awake and if I could not get back to sleep in 10 minutes, I would get up and do some things.  Within 5 minutes I was up. The first thing I do when I get up or come home is look for my cat Gabe, who has been "on his way out" for several months now, just to be sure he is ok.
He was nowhere to be found. I woke my husband up and we looked together. We found him wedged in a tiny nook in the kitchen where he had gone to die. He was still warm. I am convinced he woke me up somehow to retrieve him and say goodbye.
I will miss this cat like no other. He was amazing.  I even wrote a children's novel based on him.
My husband, after drying my tears, went back to bed. I needed some art therapy so did this ATC of my beloved.
I will always love you, Gaberlin.

I'm sorry for you loss Sad My kitty is just a year younger than yours. I know my time with her is short. I'm planning some crafts of her this year to help me remember how much I love her. Love your ATC! It's a wonderful memorial to your friend.

It all ways makes me cry to hear of folks loosing their fur babies.  Your cat was lucky to have a human who loved him so much

To all past swap partners....If something I made you fell apart in some way, it would be helpful to me if you PMed me and told me about it.  Sometimes, I try new things, and if they fail, it helps me to know

Sorry also for this big loss. My two brothers passed, and I found their kitty pics. May try to do something with that.

Your pic memorial is the first step. We all are hugging you here on craftster.
