Notes from a parish cat and his author Julie Mackenzie

My photo
I am Father Tom Fish, esteemed member of the religious team at Temptation of Christ Parish in the novels by author Julie Mackenzie. As to my background, I was invited into the rectory as a stray, laid on the charm, and was invited to stay, even honorarily ordained and no less spiritual than my sidekick Father Will. He dotes on me to high heaven and forgives all of my street cat proclivities, whatever the hell that means.

My Beautiful Sisfur

Hi, furriends!

You want to meet a beautiful kitty?

Here she is..our Anastasia who left us about four years ago. She was the most easygoing cat I've ever known. A soft bubble of fur, she brightened my days and I miss her. The anniversary of her passing is this coming Thursday. She died right here at home, full of love, at the age of 16.

Anastasia Marie Nadine Delilah..we keep your purrs in our hearts always along with memories of  cuddles so affectionate.

She would often read to me...just kidding!

Who can forget my buddy Tinker here on the left. He had a thing for Anastasia but she wasn't interested. They were the two senior kitties in the family, Tinker repeatedly trying to win her affections. She must have felt something because she joined him at the Bridge less than four months after he went.

While kitties spend their lives, or at least part of them with us since we're all adopted, we know there's always plenty of love and we're happy. 

See ya again someday, guys!

What a beautiful tribute to two beautiful loving cats. I am so sorry for your loss, but you are right - there is always love in the house when you have cats and that helps get through the sads.

We loved Anastasia, too. She was a beautiful cat, and we send you lots of love and gentle purrs as you remember her (and Tinker). XO

Mom and I enjoyed seeing her again and Tinker as well. Mom and I love tributes to family who are gone on. One day, we will hold them again and love them.
