A Little Help, An Old Favorite

i love this picture, taken way back in 2003, when I was sewing the binding on my son's quilt. That's Gizzy, "helping." Gizzy was always in the middle of everything.

Always.

Everything.

He was a hell of a cat. Woke me up at 6 AM every single morning, and met me at the door when I got home from work every evening. He made sure to spend time in my lap each day.

He went to the Rainbow Bridge two years ago.

I still miss him.

Cats. . . they can sure work their way into your heart, can't they? It's so hard when they leave us. I still miss my b & w kitty, Oreo. She's been gone 6 years now. She was a real sweetheart, except to the dog!
That's a great photo, BTW! "Helping" hee hee!

Gizzy is just beautiful! I know that he is in a good place now. He looks just like my Rolo, nice and big. I love every little bit of him. Funny how they really become your family and part of your heart.

Oh, Gizzy looks like he was much help! I know how much you miss him! My Rowdy died in January last year and having Bella really just makes me miss him more! Pets, are a wonderful thing and give so much love!

Grizz looks like he was a wonderful helper. Keeping everything grounded. We really get attached to our kitty helpers. When they go to that rainbow bridge I say I won't get another, yeah right.

Gizzy reminds me of my Chloe. She bossed me around ALL the time. Told me when to sit down - when to go to bed... Nattered at me if I didn't do what she wanted me too. It's been almost 2 years, and I still miss her so much. [Hug} and of course purrs and headbutts from my furbabies.

Gizzy sure was a character. What a great life you gave him Lynne, and now you get to share your hours with sweet Miss M.
