Just a Little More About Parker

As I mentioned in a previous recent entry, I don’t wish to emphasise the condolences of one person over another. Each and every comment or gesture of sympathy following Parker’s death is appreciated; each was an effort to communicate kindness and fellowship. However, I named Ann of Zoolatry in particular for her marvelous badge capturing Parker’s unique character because I wanted to display it and credit its maker.

Now, another unasked for tribute to my orange-boy has been sent to me, this one by Ingrid of Meezer’s Mews and Terrieristical Woofs (and yes, I had to correct that spelling a couple of times!) Just as Ann’s image shows me my sturdy-boy’s personality, Ingrid’s gives me the impression of his journey, his journey to where I hope he will wait for me, with those who have gone before.

Thank you, Ingrid, for your generosity. Parker loved to greet his friends, and I know he would love to meet you.

Thank you, everyone.


  1. Ingrid did a beautiful piece of artwork of your beloved Parker. Please know our thoughts are with you.

  2. Thanks for the compliments...I like to make these mementos for furs and their peeps, it helps me deal with the stresses in my own life, and also as an ongoing tribute to the kitties and pups from my life, both here in blogville and from previous time.

    We still add lots more purrs, woofs and wagggles to help surround you with some small comfort

  3. We ALL love pussy~cats John..that's quite
    obvious..and most of us are miles from each
    other..but when someone like yourself, writes
    with such love, we ALL feel, and love in the
    same way, and always will..!
