Farewell Miss Collar

She was loved, a one human cat her entire life.

Back into the blue asters we wander.

Back into the earth that made us.

Down to the Great Lawn where the earth is deep and soft.

Farewell Miss Collar. You were loved with a posh life in the forest. There can be a memorial fire on another day. I need more sticks. They will fall, and the weather is turning cooler.

Button and Dinah had a chance to say goodbye. Then they ventured down for the burial.

Through the looking glass

That is where you will find her.

They buried cats with the Pharaohs.

Back into the blue waters.

Into the firepit bindi of Creation. 

Then the sticks fell in a mighty blow and the power went out for over twelve hours before I could finish the post. There will be sticks to pick up. Lots of sticks and branches.

Farewell Miss Collar. Into the blue asters we wander.

A wonderful memorial and a fitting burial. It's never easy but what a wonderful final resting place.

I am so sorry. She was such a pretty cat, and well loved. I remember your stories about her.

Thank you all for the condolences. There are three cats left. Button and Dinah are 10 years old now. And it looks like Solly will be coming to live with us this winter. I hope it goes smoothly.
