Farewell, Russell


I wasn't able to find out a whole lot about Russell. He was six years old and was sent to the Rainbow Bridge due to complications from jaundice. Russell really liked to take it easy. He loved to nap on his beans. He even took a nap on his Mom's back while she was on the computer. He also loved to nap with his sibling kitties, often using them as a pillow and being used as a pillow. He loved to jump into the laundry basket and lounge on the dirty clothes. When his family moved, he jumped into the packing boxes, trying to make sure that he wouldn't be left behind. I am sure there was never any danger of that. His family miss him greatly.

                                        Russell was a lounging kitty.
                                        On his beans he loved to sitty.
                                               To the Bridge he had to go.
                                                He took it easy and slow.
                                         Now he's lounging on grass so pretty.

Russell sounds like a sweetheart.

It's so thoughtful of you to write kitty limericks. They're gifts from the heart.
