I have a little tear-off desk calendar which features cats most days, but also has quotes. Today's quote is especially appropriate. "There is no such thing as 'just a cat.'" -- Robert Heinlein. Storm was certainly much more than "just a cat." I don't remember quite when I started reading Storm's blog. It was more than nine months ago, but probaly not quite a year ago. I distinctly remember when she reached the nine-month mark after her diagnosis of lymphoma. This was the most time the vet had given her to live. Her Meowmie said that every day after that date was a precious gift. Storm managed to live an additional nine months. When her long remission ended, she again fought the lymphoma with everything she had and managed to make the three tumors in her abdomen disappear, but it took all her strength. She won her battle, but simply didn't have the stamina to go on. Storm was the bravest kitty I have ever known. She always blogged with humor and optimism. She won a special place in my heart, where she will live on forever. Have a wonderful time at the Bridge, Stormie, and watch over your Meowmies and Castle.
Our Storm, dear Storm, has gone to the Bridge.
To share in her fight, which she WON, was a privilege.
She fought hard and well,
With great stories to tell.
Stormie, we wish you a wonderful time at the Bridge.
