Ishtar was 16 and the matriarch of her kitty family. She was like a mama to my friend Zipper who posts on my blog.
Cooper was 12 and brought great joy to his family. He was very special.
I don't know why the good Lord above takes us furbabies so soon from our human families.
But I'm sure He has His reasons.
Maybe it's to teach you humans about happiness, loyalty and unconditional love and to be grateful for life, no matter how short the time.
I'll have to ask Him when it's my turn.
So I won't say "goodbye" my friends. I'll just say "I'll see you later."
But for now, I will miss you both.
But ask now the beasts and they shall teach thee; and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee: Or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee. Who knoweth not in all these that the hand of the LORD hath wrought this? In whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all mankind.
