In Memoriam Gabriel

It is with regret that we report the passing of our furriend Gabriel to the Bridge on Monday.
He quit eating and his kidneys shut down. He was a good and noble cat, loved by all who knew him.

Our eyes and Gabriel's beans eyes have been leaky all week. Charlie, a former Krasota Catle cat took extremely good care of Gabe in his final months, never leaving him and always being with him.
Our condolences to them and their other cat, Charlie.







And God asked the feline spirit
Are you ready to come home?
Oh, yes, quite so, replied the precious soul
And, as a cat, you know I am most able
To decide anything for myself.

Are you coming then? asked God.
Soon, replied the whiskered angel
But I must come slowly
For my human friends are troubled
For you see, they need me, quite certainly.

But don't they understand? asked God
That you'll never leave them?
That your souls are intertwined. For all eternity?
That nothing is created or destroyed?
It just is....forever and ever and ever.

Eventually they will understand,
Replied the glorious cat
For I will whisper into their hearts
That I am always with them
I just am....forever and ever and ever.
