Always in our hearts

As much a part of our lives as each other is, our furry four legged felines are each so unique, each so deeply part of our lives that we often look at them in terms of another person, indeed one of the family. 

We all wish that they would live 100 years..... but if they did they would loose us and there would be no one to love them like we do.  So we have to cope with the fact that a cat's life often doesn't go much beyond (for us) 16 years.  

To say that they will always be in our hearts is really putting it mildly.
