Passing of a dear friend


Our dear friend, Taco passed away peacefully yesterday. He had grown a tumor and had to be put to sleep. He was a most adventurous cat, and the whole neighborhood just loved him. He had nine lives, supposedly, but he outlived them all, as he was so crazy and daring, I know he must have escaped death many times! He was my cousins cat, who lives next door to my Mom. He would hang out mainly with my Mom and she would find him in her house, or garage, popping up in her hedge, laying in the middle of a busy road sleeping, etc. My grandkids just adored him, and many times they just wanted to walk over to find Taco so they could feed him or play. Taco played with the dogs, he was just a part of all the action, wherever it was happening. We will miss him so much. Here are a few photos I gathered together of him. Rest in peace, dear Taco!!!

RIP Taco. Putting an animal down is the hardest thing to do, but it's always what is best. My heart goes out to you all. We have 5 cats and love each of them as if they were our own kids.

Julie,
So sorry to hear of your beloved Taco. He is now with his Creator. It is so hard when we lose our pets. They are part of the family pack.
Blessings to you.

Hi Julie,
Thanks for your comment on my blog. Yes, Danielle was surprised to see her tree up . When she got home I could hear her in her room "My tree is up!". It is the little things that make us smile.

Regarding the pillow cases, I have seen at Jo-Anns stores, that they carry pre printed ones. I did buy a few of The Aunt Martha's iron on designs. They are fun to do. I hope you get a chance to do some stitching soon.
