Saying goodbye to our cat Sunshine
Nearly ten years ago, I got a call from someone telling me there was a Burmese cat in Northern California who needed a home. This cat had been used for breeding for over ten years and the last year she had been kept in a 12" x 12" cage in a garage full of Mastiff dogs in the high desert. Bob and I drove over five hours each way to get her. We had just finally adopted a new kitten, Sweetpea, after our cat Chauncey passed away who we'd had for 19 years. When we brought Sunshine into our home, I swear she thought she was Sweetpea's mama. They were inseparable.
So today it's hard to say goodbye, she was so special. We were lucky to have her in our lives as long as we did. And, yes, she lived up to her name; she was a ray of sunshine and what a character!
So now rest in peace, our sweet, beautiful girl. We'll miss you.
