Nigel, we will miss you


It was only a few short weeks ago that my sister-in-law's family in Indiana lost one of their precious cats, Tuxedo. I'm afraid there's more sad news: this morning, their Nigel was killed by some sort of wild animal while protecting another of their kitties. This is completely his nature -- if he had been a person, he'd be that big brother who would always protect you, no matter what. Nigel died a hero's death but that is little consolation when you lose a beloved pet. Above is a photo of both Nigel, on the left, and Tux on the right. They were the two black cats at my sister-in-law's home and I was delighted this spring when I was able to capture a photo of both of them, sitting still and beside eachother. It is now a very precious photograph.

Many cats have passed through our lives leaving deep footprints in our hearts. They unforgettable: Blanca, Perla, Chica Loca, Nocturno, Choriza, Micaela and so on. The other six at home one day will go away too.
I know exactly what your sister in law is feeling now.
All over the worl are cat lovers.. we know what wonderful times they can bring to us.
I feel sorry for you, from as far as Chile.
