MomBean is still healing, but I wanted to say thank you for everything that y'all have done (and keep doing) for my beans. There is still a Sprout-shaped hole in my fambly's heart, but slowly things are starting to settle. Somedays are good, some are bad. Sometimes MomBean can go a couple o' hours, and other days she goes minute to minute.

But we're holding on together, and that's what counts.

That's a great picture of you Monty! We were really glad to see a post this morning. We are still purring and praying for you all.

P.S. Kon asked if he should send you some chips, since he can't have them anyway.

Montykitter...
Such a handsome boi you are!

I found your blog after the bad thing happened...it made me cry. Even the kitturz (Snick and BadCat) got quiet when they read about your beautiful Sprout. My thoughts and prayers, and many feline headbutts, are with you and your family. Tell your MomBean to take as long as she needs to be sad...sad doesn't have an expiration date, and especially for someone as precious as the Sprout. Please give everybody wuzzles for me, Snickers, and Bad.

i beati said...

That's all any of us can do and with HIS hand we get stronger and take that love of Sprout and passit on to others and she watches over us and is our angel tie .sk
