Goodnight, Sweet Prince

It's hard to believe it's been over 6 months since we lost our beloved cat, Sir. It was such a horribly sad day for all of us and to try to explain to the kids what had happened was very difficult. Sir was my husband's prior to our marriage but I'm so glad I got to spend 7 years with him.

When we had to put him down, we had him cremated and it was just a couple of months ago that we started on a memorial garden for him. It's on the wooded side of the house where there are lots of trees and Chris planted some hostas. Eventually we would like to have it all mulched and maybe a small swing or bench. I got this rock from work (a leftover table number) and surprised Chris with my craftiness. I used Outdoor Mod Podge, so it should hold up out there but we will definitely bring it inside in the winter.

Goodbye to our sweet, sweet Sir. We sure do miss you!

ahhh! Sorry about sweet Sir! Before kids and during kids we had two cats and then two dogs. We are now pet-less, since all four of them one at a time lived their lives and passed on. One dog had to be put to sleep with all of us there. Still not over that and it's been 4.5 years. Would love a cat, but maybe in the future.
Your plaque to Sir is very, very sweet.
